Synopsis: Cocktails & Drinks Book This extraordinary book offers an interesting review of the world of cocktails. It’s structured into two separate sections: the first deals with new cocktail concepts that the author has coined in his bars, the basic ingredients, the different types of drinks and alcohols, the tools and utensils needed to prepare a good drink at home; of the ways and means that need to be known, the knowhow, the tricks, and a last section dedicated to the healthy elements of the cocktail. The second part –the largest—is dedicated to cocktail recipes, about eighty in total, which in turn is divided in three large sections: the classical cocktails, the Dry and Tonics and the Frappés, all accompanied by stories, anecdotes, secrets, tricks, and advice. ”I immediately understood that the day I had a bar it would be like the Dry Martini of Barcelona. And as a matter of fact, the Hemingway Bar has borrowed a lot of Javier’s ideas and of that kingdom of cocktails.” Colin Peter Field—Hemingway Bar, Hotle Ritz—Paris.
