My father in law is tough to buy for and this book was a perfect (belated) Father's Day gift for him. He enjoyed flipping through it when he received it and I'm sure he'll love trying out the recipes!
So far I am loving this book. The structure is really easy; broken up by main cocktail type then offering variations based on the primary liquor for each. Lots of fun and better structure than just a book with an alphabetized list of drinks (though those do serve a purpose too). Recommending to friends/family!
USPS finally got tired of its Ping Pong game with my book.
Usps lost my order so I'm still waiting on a new one to come so I can review this.
I have not found very many drinks that sound of interest. I also would have liked to have seen images of the made drinks - this helps immensely - maybe an enhancement to your next edition. I also feel the notes pages are not useful and these extra pages could have been used to include images.
