 A Spot at the Bar

The art of good drinking in 300 recipes.

If there were a master class on bartending, A Spot at the Bar could qualify as its textbook. Discussions of ice and bar tools are comprehensive. The 300 classic recipes here are enough to make any mixologist a pro. 

What we love the most, though, are the stories at the bottom of the glass. Take The Bamboo, for example, developed in the 1890s at the Grand Hotel in Yokohama, Japan for Western dignitaries. Enjoy the 3 recipes featured here: the Bitter French, Sazerac, and Stinger.

Find A Spot at the Bar on Amazon or a local bookstore near you.

The Bitter French

How to make a Bitter French cocktail
This cocktail was created by Phil Ward during his days at Death & Co., NYC.

The Sazerac

How to make a Sazerac cocktail
This drink really is a masterpiece. The original called for Cognac instead of rye, and the brand of Cognac used was called Sazerac – hence the name.

The Stinger

The STinger cocktail
"Stingers, and keep them coming." – Cary Grant, in the 1957 movie Kiss Them For Me
