“There’s nothing like this out there at the moment," says Stolte. "It seems there’s three kinds of cocktail books: huge encyclopedic cover-everything doorstops, intro-to-drinkmaking books full of bad advice and mediocre-at-best recipes, or niche specialty books that are well-written with great recipes, but don’t cover the foundations. Home Bar Basics (and Not-So-Basics) aims to fill that space on the bookshelf in an approachable way.”
"I wish this book was around when I was learning how to bartend,"says Jason Schiffer. Schiffer's not the only person backing Stolte's guide. Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe, mikeroweWORKS.com), Eric Alperin (The Varnish, Milk & Honey, Little Branch), and Paul Harrington (Cocktail: the Drinks Bible for the 21st Century) also endorse it. With this handy guide you'll be slinging drinks better than Tom Cruise in "Cocktail" before you know it. Don't worry if you drop a bottle or two, the pages are water and tear-proof. We told you Stolte thought of it all.
