Pressestimmen

"Dale DeGroff is the Oracle, the Yoda, the Walking Buddha of mixology. Simply put: If you're having an argument about how to make a particular cocktail? Whoever quotes DeGroff wins."
—Anthony Bourdain

“Dale DeGroff is the Grand Master Chef of cocktail making. I've been lucky enough to be his student–now everyone will know his secrets!”
—Bobby Flay

“I am a huge believer that no dining experience is complete without a perfectly mixed cocktail and who better to guide you in its preparation than the King of Cocktails himself. The Essential Cocktail has any drink you could ever want, and in Dale DeGroff’s capable hands, cocktail perfection is assured.”
—Ming Tsai

"Dale DeGroff is without a doubt the ultimate rock-star bartender. He's fueled many of my parties around the world with his extraordinarily well-crafted and elegant cocktails. A true master."
—Colin Cowie

“The Essential Cocktail is a handbook for ladies and gentlemen interested in the honorable pursuit of all things delicious. For me that very often starts with a delightful and tasty cocktail crafted by the true master mixologist, Dale DeGroff. With this guide in hand, perfect drinks are no longer difficult alchemy, but easy sipping instead.”
—Mario Batali

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Dale DeGroff, Autor von The Craft of the Cocktail: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Master Bartender, with 500 Recipes und einer der prominentesen Barkeeper der USA, hat ein wunderbares Buch geschrieben!

"The Essential Cocktail - The Art of Mixing Perfect Drinks" - ein viel versprechender Titel und ein hoher Anspruch! Doch DeGroff wird ihm gerecht, er stellt die wichtigsten, großen Drinks nicht nur vor, sondern bietet auch viele Hintergrundinformationen.

Insgesamt sind es über 100 überwiegend klassische Cocktails und noch einmal soviele Varianten, also geschätzte 250 Rezepte. Der Vorzug des Buches ist aber nicht die bloße Zahl der Rezepte - reine Sammlungen gibt es in großer Zahl und zu Dumping-Preisen auf dem Markt. Hier geht Qualität vor Quantität! DeGroff stellt alle Drinks im Zusammenhang dar, hat ihre Entstehungsgeschichte recherchiert, Originalrezepte ausgegraben und verbreitete Varianten verfeinert, erklärt wichtige Zutaten, gibt sogar Tipps für Abwandlungen und die Anpassung an den eigenen Geschmack. Damit dürfte das Buch nicht nur für den Hobby-Mixer und Connoisseur, sondern auch für gestandene Barkeeper eine wahre Fundgrube sein.

Richtig Spaß macht das Buch natürlich nur, wenn man einigermaßen Englisch kann, denn gerade die Erläuterungen zu den Drinks sind wertvoll. Als reines Rezeptbuch lässt sich das Buch aber auch mit rudimentären Sprachkenntnissen gut nutzen! So sind die Mengen in den Rezepten durchgehend in ounces angegeben, lassen sich also sehr leicht umrechnen.

Great text, more specific recipes, dubious pictures 8. November 2008
Von D. Rivera - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a definite must-have book -- Mr. DeGroff's reputation is such that you can trust pretty much every recipe he has in the book. If you are wondering whether to buy this book over pretty much any other similar cocktail book, I would advise you to buy it in a heartbeat.

Would I rather have it over his earlier Craft of the Cocktail? For most people, no. That book covers the basics for the average home mixologist, whereas this sequel tends to discuss more advanced techniques, like certain foam toppings.

Mr. DeGroff continues to share great anecdotes about the cocktail hour in the Essential Cocktail and certainly isn't a dry writer. I also like how many of these recipes prescribe a particular brand of spirit to be used in each cocktail. This specificity is an improvement over the Craft of the Cocktail.

If I do have to criticize the book, it is that I don't always feel that the pictures jive with the recipes. Specifically, many pictures have these peel garnishes hanging off of the glass. It was my understanding that this style is not really Mr. DeGroff's, especially for those recipes calling for flamed peels. There is even a section in the book entitled "Garnishes" that advocates a style in direct contradiction to the pictures. However, I have not had the pleasure and privilege of Mr. DeGroff's live performances. Perhaps I'm wrong, but based on some of the videos I've seen of his, these drinks don't look like they've been made in the style of Mr. DeGroff. In Craft, many of the pictures features DeGroff's hands as he makes the drink. So, unfortunately I get the sense that Mr. DeGroff wrote a great book but then had Potter Publishers provide some generic pictures. A minor issue of trusting what I see that detracts from the sense that this book is all about Dale DeGroff.

Great Book, but... 3. Dezember 2008
Von scratchline - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Proofread! Please! While this book isn't as riddled with misprints as Mr. DeGroff's first book, there are still mistakes aplenty. No excuse. The book is beautiful and arguably better laid out than Craft of the Cocktail which is also essential. And, of course, Dale DeGroff is as close as you can get to a cocktail oracle. But, for Chrissake, proofread it! Next time, just drop me an email, and I'll do it for free. It would be an honor. Oh, and throw some o.j. into that Ward Eight.

Good recipes, beautiful pictures, could have been more complete 4. Juni 2010
Von BoarderPaul - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This was one of the first cocktail books I bought, and I still turn to it often. It's quite complete, and has beautiful photography. I also appreciated that DeGroff has included a number of his own creations, which add some interest to the book. There's a good discussion of barware, tools, techniques, etc, and just the right amount of cocktail history.

The reason it's a 4-star and not a 5-star is that ultimately it's really just another recipe book--though a very good one. Ultimately, I hope for reference books, whether they are cookbooks, cocktail books, or plumbing repair books, to tell me WHY I'm doing something and not just WHAT to do. If you're already very familiar with cocktails and are looking for some new ideas, you'll probably enjoy this book just fine. However, if you're looking for an in-depth overview of cocktails which will give you more of a sophisticated understanding of the subject, I would recommend The Joy of Mixology: The Consummate Guide to the Bartender's Craft. At the very least I would recommend you check out both books before buying.

Drink Porn or should I say Pornography for Mixologists... 31. Oktober 2008
Von Christopher Carlsson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Beautifully done in both material and layout,this is bound to be a must have classic tome on mixology.While it covers only about 500 recipes,it covers 500 worthwhile or essential(hence the title)cocktails, all well worthy of inclusion in a cocktail reference book - not just a compendium of every drink ever concocted (for better or worse). Almost every drink is given a short but interesting history/intro, then ingredients, directions, and photographs of the finished drink.
Larger format (quarto or about 10 1/2" Tall and 8" wide)with a rarely seen (in drinks books past or present) decent binding so it stays open nicely with tasteful graphics,easy to read type fonts,and even a nicely retro cover (under the more modern dust jacket),it combines the practical and the high art both in its content and production. A lot of thought must have gone into not only the contents of the books but also the practical aspects of it.Built not only to please the eye and palette it works well on a counter,(or better yet behind one of those clear plastic book holders),laying flat, easy to read/consult,easy to wipe pages,and logically organized with a fine array of carefully chosen drinks.
While not as exhaustive as Dales other classicThe Craft of the Cocktail: Everything You Need to Know to Make 500 of the World's Best Drinks and Host Legendary Parties It is a precis on how to do the included cocktails properly and artfully.

Just starting out on the mixology journey 19. Juni 2009
Von H. Rivers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I decided it was time to start finding some more things I'd like to drink other than the 3 things I order at every bar. So I checked a bunch of books on bar tending out of the library. This is by far my favorite so I bought a copy to keep. First, it has a lot of the classic drinks that you'd get at a bar and also lots of others and all the drinks I've made so far are really great. Second, the photos are super - I pick half the drinks just by their looks alone. Third, the stories with each drink just add another layer of fun. I didn't expect to learn anything about the history of cocktails in America, but I have and it's been really fun.
