"Robert Plotkin’s latest tome showcases his deep knowledge of the origins of specific drinks, the rationale behind the basic ingredients and the creative license available to today’s bartenders and mixologists, not to mention sound advice on how best to use said license. The recipes, culled from respected establishments, are stellar examples that also serve as fodder for further exploration. Like a well-crafted cocktail, Plotkin’s prose is informative, insightful and entertaining."
