    One thought on “The Bar Book: Elements of Cocktail Technique”

    1. This book doesn't just tell you how to make a cocktail, it explains the why of the technique. Level up your bar skills!You might also enjoy:✱ Liquid Intelligence: The Art and Science of the Perfect Cocktail✱ Speakeasy✱ The Canon Cocktail Book✱ The 12-Bottle Bar

    2. Morgenthaler's thesis is quite straightforward: there are three key elements to any cocktail: (1) the recipe, (2) the ingredients, and (3) the technique. It is his contention that the latter is overlooked, to the detriment of the final product, and it is this book's intention to correct that oversight. The Bar Book: Elements of Cocktail Technique is chock full of great advice--everything from keeping your lemons and limes refrigerated, not bothering with the rolling them on the counter technique [...]

    3. As someone who was SUPER into cocktails a couple years ago, but kind of got distracted, I was tickled to find this book. It has rekindled my interest and inspired me to try some things I haven't done before. In particular, I am excited to try his quinine tincture method for gin and tonics rather than making a tonic syrup. My only complaint is there isn't a Manhattan recipe, which doesn't really matter because mine is the best, but that's the cocktail I use for the sake of comparison. Off to the [...]

    4. The best bar book I've read so far. Pragmatic, with a lot of practical examples and experiments. When someone says you need to roll a lemon before juicing, because it produces more juice, the author performs an experiment and find out what is true and what is not. When someone says, for a cocktail you need a half of lemon, the author shows the exact amount of mils you need for the cocktail.He also don't hesitate to invite more proffesional people in specific area to write a chapter.This book not [...]

    5. Güzel yemek yapmak sizi iyi bir aşçı yapmadığı gibi güzel kokteyl yapabilmek de sizi asla iyi bir barmen/barmeid yapmaz. Bu kitap hobi seviyesinin ötesinde profesyonel düzeyde bir bar çalışanı iseniz okumanız gereken bir kitap. O yüzden çok hoşuma gitti. Zira bu kitap size kokteyl yapmayı değil bir barda daha efektif olarak nasıl çalışacağınızı gösteren bir eser.

    6. Morgenthaler's books of the ultra-basics. Pretty good, although I think I needed the ultra-ultra basics. I picked this up as an introduction to cocktail making. It was great for detailing how to juice a lemon, how to stir a drink, but notably never addressed the basics of liquor at all.

    7. Broadly usefulFor someone getting started with a home bar, a couple of YouTube videos will do better, but there’s a wealth of material for an aspiring professional

    8. You will be amazed to learn how to create flavorful cocktails by making every part of a drink from the juice to the bitters to the garnish.

    9. Very hwlpdulLots of practical tips on things often ignored, including how to stir properly. I'll be consulting this again before my next big party!

    10. (I purchased this book on after having seen it recommended highly in various cocktail forums, and having also been a fan of Morgenthaler’s blog as a resource for recipes, tips and tricks). Morgenthaler has produced an excellent addition to anyone interested in improving upon the quality of the mixed drinks they craft either at home or behind the bar. What makes The Bar Book so terribly useful is that - to use the old cliché - there really is something in here for everyone. From the budding d [...]

    11. [Disclosure:I have known the author for several years and drunk at several of the bars where he's worked]"The Bar Book" should be among the early acquisitions of anyone looking for a deeper knowledge of cocktails. Neither a collection of recipes nor an historical survey, this volume covers the basics of both home and professional bars. (Indeed, one of its strongest points is an acknowledgment that tools and practices that work well in one of those places may not be the best approaches in the oth [...]

    12. In his book, Morgenthaler focuses on a very important aspect most authors seem to miss: The Technique. While there are a lot of books about cocktails, a great number of them are plain recipe lists. Being a master bartender Morgenthaler shares his experience by sharing the tricks he learned along the way on how to craft those cocktails (While elaborating on techniques he recommends different approaches for bartenders by career and everyday cocktail aficionados, having in mind the needs and expect [...]

    13. Thinking about helping out at a cocktail night so brushing up. This offers a really good techniques primer and definitely shows why you would want someone with cooking chops behind a bar. There are very few recipes but the bits and bobs shows great promise for ideas. Already cribbed a few ideas for other areas.For instance, tinctures to use in beer, making a beer infused with elements of gin (gentian, etc), instead of just fat washing alcohol use fat soluble flavours to add, make other exotic ty [...]

    14. useful guide for the novice I thought I might enjoy learning about cocktails and much prefer to attempt them at home rather than to start bar hopping at this stage of life. It's not hard to locate recipes, but the how tos are harder to come by. What I especially like about this book is that the basics are covered. I am much more willing to give it a go after reading this book. I made notes where the author suggested brand names for equipment. That will save trial and error! I enjoyed reading abo [...]

    15. 3.5 stars. This is both an informative and fun book. There is a lot of really good technique and explanation of why bartenders make better cocktails that people at home. They understand measurements, they understand the need for quality ingredients and the need to follow a process; that some drinks need to be shaken and some need to be stirred.

    16. A true treasure trove of bar techniques. Many of these I've picked up over the years either from periodically consulting Morgenthaler's blog (among others) or from hanging around bartenders who have put these techniques into practice. I'm pleased as punch though to finally have something between two covers to consult to hone my own personal mixing skills.

    17. This is a great and comprehensive guide diving into the minutia of making cocktails. If you are looking for technique introduction this really is your only option on the market. I do wish there was a section about drink balance, but this is an almost universal complain about cocktail intro books.

    18. this book made me embarrassed to be from the willamette valleyalso too much name dropping why would a book about bar technique talk about all your bartending friends if you hoped it would be relevant in like a year

    19. A spectacular guide to proper cocktail technique written by one of the premier mixologists in the United States if not the world. Highly recommended for both professionals and the amateur home bartender. Well worth the money.

    20. don't get/read this book if you are only interested in recipes. There are only a handful of those. Instead enjoy a masterclass of technique where you are guaranteed to learn something (probably a lot of things) no matter who you are.

    21. essential. one of the three or four must-reads for a new bartender or barback looking to improve their approach. combined with hands-on training, of course.

    22. I love this book. It launched me into the delicious new world of craft cocktails. Everybody needs a hobby ;)

    23. Not bad, good info, nice pictures. Weirdly arranged, and most of these I would still rather have a bartender make, but a good reference to have on hand.

    24. Fantastically presented, and full of great information. Maybe even better than The Joy of Mixology.
