Written by an award-winning bartender, The Bar Book guides mixologists of all skill levels in the art of proper cocktail technique that'll help you craft amazing drinks.


    Learn how to bartend like a pro with the help of The Bar Book: Elements of Cocktail Technique by Jeffrey Morgenthaler.

    Morgenthaler, the award-winning and beloved bartender from Clyde Common in Portland, OR, wrote this book because he noticed there was no other text on the market that discussed proper cocktail techniques like juicing, straining, stirring, shaking, garnishing, and so much more.

    Over the course of nearly 300 pages, he takes the reader on an educational journey about the essential skills and techniques needed to make a cocktail that truly shines. Frequent photographs and recipes help illustrate and reinforce the concepts he discusses and inspire confidence in even the most amateur of bartenders.

    If you're intrigued by the magical world of mixology, but you're not sure where to start, Jeffrey Morgenthaler has you covered! Get your copy of The Bar Book: Elements of Cocktail Technique today!
