In a perfect world, your home bar would be stocked to the moon with all the liquor anyone could ask for. Sadly, we don’t live in a perfect world and we all know no one is ever going to ask you for a drink with Hpnotiq in it. A great home bar should have the essentials to appease 99.9% of the people who walk through your door. With this book, The 12 Bottle Bar, you will learn how to make 200 cocktails all while only owning 12 bottles of liquor.
Some of the liquors that made the cut or didn’t might surprise you. For instance, tequila didn’t make the cut, and neither did bourbon, but genever did. So if you’re a tequila and bourbon lover (WE ARE!) you can have a 14 bottle bar. There’s no law against that!
The 12 Bottle Bar describes itself as a system, a tool kit, a recipe book. And it is all that. What began as an idea to to create the perfect home bar with just 12 bottles of booze turned into your guide on how to use those 12 bottles to make more than 200 classic and unique mixed drinks, including sours, slings, toddies, and highballs, plus the perfect Martini, the perfect Manhattan, and the perfect Mint Julep.
