    Review quote
    "I'd peg this as the gift book of the season for the serious cocktail fan: It's extravagantly illustrated by artist Chris Gall, beautifully designed, fun to browse and possessed of a satisfying heft. And there are some 300 drink recipes, many extraordinary, to adapt as your own classic and new-classic cocktails." --"The Wall Street Journal""" "Jim Meehan seamlessly blends classic and cutting-edge in "The PDT Cocktail Book", and the result is basically a new-school bible for the cocktail geek. The book covers everything from barware to bacon-infused bourbon, complete with illustrations by Chris Gall.

But any cook--or, for that matter, person--who's seriously interested in mixology will quickly realize it's the definitive work, a roadmap for a lifetime of amazing cocktails." -- Mark Bittman, "New York Times" columnist and author of "How to Cook Everything" "Americans have always loved drinking, but in the past five years or so America has recommitted itself to learning to drink well! Jim Meehan has helped lead this joyful renaissance, but his specific influence has been to decouple drink perfection from pompousness. Quality drinking should be as unintimidating and fun as it is delicious and smart: that's Jim Meehan's doing. I'm
