Is it better for a martini to be shaken, not stirred? Does it matter which order you add the ingredients of a Long Island Iced Tea? How many ice cubes can you add to a margarita without compromising the flavour?

The perfect home begins with a blueprint and a dream, and your perfect cocktail should start the same way! The Architecture of the Cocktail will reveal the answers to all your cocktail queries and more.

Focusing on the precise measurements to make the perfect drink as well as the recommended garnish and embellishments, you'll no longer have to guess what a cocktail should taste like.

Laying out the exact measurements from the bottom of your glass to the top, you'll discover the order in which you should layer your liquor, the precise measurements needed, and even recommended brands.

Not sure which stemware is appropriate? Consult the mini guide on identifying the correct stemware in the back of the book.

Featuring 75 different cocktails and recipes (including specifications, notes, and embellishments), this is the perfect gift for the cocktail lover in your life. Don't waste another minute on watered-down cocktails - become a cocktail master with this beautifully illustrated guide.
