For over 60 years, Mr. Boston has been the definitive drink guide for amateurs and professionals alike.  The classic bartending authority includes a huge range of drink recipes, from the traditional to the trendy, presented alphabetically with clear, easy-to-follow instructions.  In this Deluxe Edition, the classic book's recipe collection and industry tips and tricks are supplemented by even more comprehensive bartending information, geared towards the professional mixologist.  New sections exclusive to the Deluxe Edition include: "Tips of the Trade," containing expert advice and anectodes from the best bartenders in the world; "Tools, Techniques, and Garnishes," with in-depth descriptions and illustrations to guide bartenders in making world-class cocktails, and "Basic Recipes," which explains how readers can eschew prepared mixes and instead make their own grenadine syrup, ginger beer, and more.  Charts of bar measures and equivalents, information on standard proofs, a glossary of terms, and a comprehensive listing of resources for glassware, ingredients, and more round out this new edition with the most up-to-date information available.  Of course, the book also includes recipes for everything from martinis and cosmopolitans to screwdrivers and champagne punch, as well as comprehensive information on liquors, wines, and beers and the answers to countless common bartending questions.  Along with this enhanced content, an elegant package and accompanying website make the Deluxe Edition of Mr. Boston a must-have for every professional bartender.
