Book Synopsis



Essential for the home bar cocktail enthusiast and the professional bartender alike

"The textbook for a new generation." --Jeffrey Morgenthaler, author of The Bar Book

"A true classic in its own right . . . that will be used as a reference for the next 100 years and more." --Gaz Regan, author of The Joy of Mixology

2017 JAMES BEARD FOUNDATION BOOK AWARD NOMINEE: BEVERAGE

2017 SPIRITED AWARD(R) NOMINEE: BEST NEW COCKTAIL & BARTENDING BOOK

Frank Caiafa--bar manager of the legendary Peacock Alley bar in the Waldorf Astoria--stirs in recipes, history, and how-to while serving up a heady mix of the world's greatest cocktails. Learn to easily prepare pre-Prohibition classics such as the original Manhattan, or daiquiris just as Hemingway preferred them. Caiafa also introduces his own award-winning creations, including the Cole Porter, an enhanced whiskey sour named for the famous Waldorf resident.

Each recipe features tips and variations along with notes on the drink's history, so you can master the basics, then get adventurous--and impress fellow drinkers with fascinating cocktail trivia. The book also provides advice on setting up your home bar and scaling up your favorite recipe for a party.

Since it first opened in 1893, the Waldorf Astoria New York has been one of the world's most iconic hotels, and Peacock Alley its most iconic bar. Whether you're a novice who's never adventured beyond a gin and tonic or an expert looking to expand your repertoire, The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book is the only cocktail guide you need on your shelf.



Review Quotes




2017 JAMES BEARD FOUNDATION BOOK AWARD NOMINEE: BEVERAGE

2017 SPIRITED AWARD(R) NOMINEE: BEST NEW COCKTAIL & BARTENDING BOOK

"The textbook for a new generation."
--Jeffrey Morgenthaler, Bar Manager of Clyde Common (Portland, Oregon) and author of The Bar Book: Elements of Cocktail Technique

"A must. Mixologists take note: one of the world's rarest, most classic cocktail books has been updated for the first time since 1934. The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book by Frank Caiafa, bar manager of the Waldorf chic Peacock Alley watering hole, is not merely a reissue but a celebration of all things imbibable, as well as the iconic hotel itself. . . . We're getting thirsty just writing about it."
--Maxim

"The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book will keep a cocktail-loving dad busy for a long time and show him not only how to craft serious drinks but how to prepare a home bar."
--Cigar Aficianado

"As bar manager of the Waldorf's Peacock Alley, Caiafa is the gatekeeper to many of history's oldest cocktail recipes and in a sense, an usher into the ways we will drink them in the future."
--Town and Country

"The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book, along with Cole Porter's "You're the Top" (written there) and Veal Oscar (invented there), counts among the hotel's cultural legacies."
--Gotham

"The instructions are as straightforward as the tales behind the concoctions are lively, meandering, and inviting. Caiafa is neither a mad scientist nor a cop enforcing the correct proportions of a martini. He insists that the best drink is the one made the way you like it. . . . A book steeped in history but delivered in a fresh and inviting new format."
--Library Journal (starred review)

"Frank has done the un-doable. He has taken The Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book and brought it completely up to date with this brand new tome that will, I predict, be hailed as a true classic in its own right, standing tall next to books such as Jim Meehan's PDT Cocktail Book, another volume that will be used as a reference for the next 100 years and more."
--Gaz Regan, author of The Joy of Mixology and cocktail columnist

"Anyone who's ever made a drink will appreciate the countless hours Caiafa spent on top of his daily grind mixing, balancing, comparing and taking notes, putting together this impressive compendium one drink at a time. The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book is nothing short of a terrific recipe book I highly recommend to cocktail enthusiasts, and an essential reference manual professional bartenders will be using for years to come."
--Martin Corriveau, justcocktails.org
