The PDT Cocktail Book
This handsomely illustrated guide to contemporary cocktails calls to mind the near-legendary Savoy Cocktail Book of the 1930s. Author Jim Meehan is the founder of PDT (short for Please Don't Tell), a speakeasy-inspired bar in Manhattan's East Village which patrons enter by slipping into a phone booth with a false back wall in another restaurant. Meehan's reputation among fellow mixologists is very strong, supported by his own inventions as well as his commanding knowledge of classics and cocktail history. In addition to his own creations and subtle refinements of well-known standards, the 300+ recipes here include contributions from other modern masters, as well as vintage selections ranging back into the nineteenth century. A pleasure to use and to browse.
