Cocktail Hotel - 1st Floor

The Historical Archive Series - Book 1. This is a 10-Book Series, starting with the 1st Floor and ending with the 10th Floor. There was no way to put it out as one piece, as it's close to 1000 pages in total. However, in my opinion, putting it out this way is better, as it gives you the customer the full option of buying only the drink themes you're interested in, per floor. There are close to 5,000 recipes in total, in 195 different themed categories of drink throughout the 10 floors. Therefore, creating a 10-book series makes it more interesting, and avoids being overwhelming. Simply put, the book is a hotel, with floors instead of chapters, drink rooms instead of categories, and scene numbers to go along with each cocktail. Front Desk = Introduction Concierge = Info Notes Drink Rooms = Contents The best thing to do is click-on the Look Inside feature of the book and take a peek at the drink rooms of themed cocktail categories to see if they fit your fancy. Cocktail Hotel is the largest drink book in bar history. Please read through the Front Desk page, again by using the Look Inside feature, to get more background on the creation of the book and its content. There are no culinary cocktail pictures except on the front covers. The book price would have been three times higher to have pictures anywhere in the interior, regardless of how many or few used within. Once you start you can never have enough or please everyone's tastes. I kept it simple and inexpensive. Not an excuse, just a reality with independent productions, that's all. Would have loved to, though. The picture on the front cover that I was able to provide at no extra cost is from my own cocktail photography series.
