The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book is a publication that focuses on both the recipes behind some fantastic cocktails as well as the history behind them. Written by bar manager of the Peacock Alley Bar, Frank Caiafa, the book provides valuable advice for mixologists and bartenders alike.
Although the book might come across as being just for hardcore professionals, the book is actually great for beginners as well. The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book will provide a great deal of information on how to setup your own home bar and how to scale up a recipe if you're mixing for a large group of people. General wisdom is conveyed from Caiafa, a renowned master, to help readers learn more about mixology on multiple levels.
