Beautifully illustrated, beautifully designed, and beautifully crafted--just like its namesake--this is the ultimate bar book by NYC's most meticulous bartender.
To say that PDT is a unique bar is an understatement. It recalls the era of hidden Prohibition speakeasies: to gain access, you walk into a raucous hot dog stand, step into a phone booth, and get permission to enter the serene cocktail lounge. Now, Jim Meehan, PDT's innovative operator and mixmaster, is revolutionizing bar books, too, offering all 304 cocktail recipes available at PDT plus behind-the-scenes secrets. From his bar design, tools, and equipment to his techniques, food, and spirits, it's all here, stunningly illustrated by Chris Gall.

localized, tightly regulated, and easy to summarize, while others are not, making them difficult to group together. I’ve attempted to use U.S. and E.U. Standards of Identity sparingly and spend more time describing what a category is and less on what it isn’t or can’t be by law. This primer was written with PDT’s cocktail program and spirits selection in mind and is not a comprehensive overview of distilled spirits. The omission of a product or subcategory is not a reflection of my opinion of a

1884. An extremely rare early bartender’s guide that expands on the format first introduced by Jerry Thomas’s Bartender’s Guide (recipes for drinks, syrups, bitters, and the production of liqueurs). The lack of suggestions for how to serve the book’s many recipes is unfortunate, but the presence of many first appearances, such as the Manhattan and the Martinez, make this book a gem.
