Críticas

I don't think I have attempted a book on cocktails before. I asked for this one to review because I am a gin drinker.

I found the book too flippant and disrespectful of non-specialist readers. It is full of in-jokes and references to people, places and cocktails that fill Mr.Regan's life, not mine, and is a far cry from the thoughtful essays written by, for example, Wayne Curtis in "The Atlantic Monthly," whose writing I find interesting and informative.

If you know cocktails and read the cocktail literature then this book will probably excite you. Me? I wanted to smack the author for saying that, if polled, 90% of bartenders might say their fave cocktail is a Negroni. Try out that poll in Iowa and see how the stats work.

I received a review copy of "The Negroni" by Gary Regan (Ten Speed) through NetGalley.com.

The section on specific brands of gin is heavy on the marketing speak, but I really appreciated getting the list of botanicals in all sorts of different gins (my shopping list is huge now). The copy/paste from websites never reached the annoyance level of "Romancing the Roads", that's for sure! I've made three cocktails from the recipe list (a treasure trove of classic and modern drinks) and all of them were fantastic.

Comprehensive guide to mixing cocktails from any kind of alcohol (and some non-alcoholic). Includes hot drinks and punches. I've learned much from this book, including how many kinds of alcohol I'm never likely to drink or own. The index is not as comprehensive as the book.
