The Bartender's Black Book
The bestselling bartending guide on the market is now in its tenth edition, and, still with twice the drink recipes of any other, remains the most comprehensive and user-friendly drink recipe book for the home and professional bartender. What's new? Sake. And lots of it. Six pages of the rice-based beverage. Types, serving etiquette, flavour profiles, food matching, history and lore, and much more. There are 150 added drinks, including those in a new "Low-Cal Concoctions" section, an expanded glossary, and Robert M. Parker's updated Vintage Guide. The Bartender's Black Book is now even the most environmentally conscientious bar guide with tips on how to "green" your home and/or commercial bar. Classic features: an index by ingredients, in-depth mixing instructions, metric conversion tables, a list of every possible garnish, sections on hot drinks, frozen drinks, beers, ales, lagers, and "malternatives", and Cunningham's "Glossary of Club, Restaurant and Bar Terms, and Slang" (sample below). Weisenheimer(n): slang, an obnoxious person; someone who thinks their banter is clever or humorous, even though others may not. Wounded Soldier (n): a beer that has been opened, partially consumed and left to die. See Soldier, and Dead Soldier.
