with or as told to Marah Stets, Mette Randem

Raising the Bar  

With years of experience as a master mixologist, and more than 250 wide-ranging cocktail recipes, Nick Mautone has gone well beyond the usual bartender's guide to offer unique and foolproof ideas for easy and successful entertaining at home.

From Nogs to Grogs, Martinis to Manhattans, Frappes to Flips, and everything in between, Raising the Bar offers the right drink for any occasion, morning, noon, and night...and the morning after.

This guide to entertaining also features dozens of recipes for little bites to accompany your drinks; homemade garnishes, syrups, cordials, and brandies; rubs, glazes and sauces made from drink elements; and the absolute last word on demystifying hard-to-find ingredients.

With more than one hundred colorful photographs illustrating technique and finished drinks, Raising the Bar definitely raises the bar on better drink books.
