Phaidon Regarding Cocktails

Sasha Petraske
$30
If you can only have one bartending manual, let it be this one! It's a posthumously-published collection of drink recipes from the late Sasha Petraske and his wife Georgette Moger-Petraske. (He opened the Lower East Side speakeasy Milk and Honey; she's a spirits writer.) Not only is it a beautiful — and bittersweet — tribute to his career, but it's a fantastic bar resource in its own right. Inventive without being trendy, user-friendly without being facile, and thorough enough to assure you that the pair has really done their homework. Every cocktail is a riff on one of five types: an Old-Fashioned, a Martini, a Sour, a Highball, or a Fix — and there's even an entire chapter of nonalcoholic drinks and large-format punches.
