The Essential Cocktail by Dale DeGroff
This book is essential as much for its author as its contents. Although it provides a great look into many classic drinks, technique, and ingredients, it is most relevant for the fact that Dale DeGroff took craft cocktails seriously when few others did, and trained many bartenders that would go on to become highly influential in the craft cocktail scene. There are other books that provide better starting points for learning the art of the cocktail, but no serious bookshelf would be complete without this tome. Recommended for serious cocktail enthusiasts, especially those that approach the art through the written word.
