Additional Information

More than 350 drink recipes old and new with great writing from The New York Times.

The cocktail hour is once again one of America’s most popular pastimes and one of our favorite ways to entertain. And what better place to find the secrets of great drink-making than The Times?

Steve Reddicliffe, the “Quiet Drink” columnist for The Times, brings his signature voice and expertise to this collection of delicious recipes from bartenders from everywhere, especially New York City.  Readers will find treasured recipes they have enjoyed for years—the classics like the Martini, the Old-Fashioned, the Manhattan, the French 75, the Negroni —as well as favorites from the new generation of elixirs borne of the craft distilling boom.

Reddicliffe has carefully curated this essential collection, with memorable writing from famed New York Times journalists like Mark Bittman, Craig Claiborne, Toby Cecchini, Eric Asimov, Rosie Schaap, Robert Simonson, Melissa Clark, William L. Hamilton, Jonathan Miles, Amanda Hesser, William Grimes and many more.

This compendium is arranged by cocktail type, with engaging essays throughout. Included are notes on how to set up your bar, stock, and run it—and of course hundreds of recipes, from Bloody Marys to Irish Coffees.

The Essential New York Times Book of Cocktails is the only volume you will ever need to entertain at home, whether it’s just for two, or for pleasing a crowd.

Ditto on the review pointing out that there is no index by cocktail name. Plus, there seems to be a major omission in the index under Bourbon, Whiskey, Scotch and Rye cocktails. The cocktails end with the letter "G" and then the Gin recipes begin! What happened to the rest of "G" through "Z"? I want the missing parts of the index, and a general index would be nice so I could look up recipes that feature, say, lemons! I'm sure there will be a corrected version, but I'm stuck with this one!
Generally an okay compilation of cocktail recipes that have been published in the New York times. The book is interesting history of relatively recent cocktail trends, but I do not recommend this as your only recipe book. If you collect cocktail books, this is a nice addition. Otherwise, I'd pass on this book.
Interesting histories and criticism for the cocktail enthusiast. The curious traveler will also want to note the bars reviewed and maybe try some of the drinks firsthand. A step above the common book for casual entertaining.
