MEDIA REVIEWS
"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. Buy two--despite your best gift-giving intentions, this is a book you'll want to keep for yourself. --MensHealth.com "Cocktails are evolving and becoming more culinary and with that evolution more skill is required from the craftsmen and women who make them. Jim Meehan of PDT is busily mapping the DNA of cutting edge cocktails and I am delighted he has decided to publish his delicious findings. The PDT Cocktail Book is a marvelous, classically illustrated book that I believe to be the book of the decade if not more." --Dale DeGroff, master mixologist and founding president of The Museum of the American Cocktail "Jim Meehan's book is, as the subtitle says, a manual for bartenders, and one that will undoubtedly become a bible for many of them. 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 so glad he's written this beautiful book -- shake yourself up an Applejack Rabbit, sit down, and read this like a novel."--Rachel Maddow, host of The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC "I've imbibed every drink in this book; whether I can recall all the nights spent at PDT is another story. Jim Meehan has written a manifesto for aspiring drunks and bartenders alike." --David Chang, chef/owner of Momofuku
