"Raising the Bar: A Bottle-by-Bottle Guide to Mixing Masterful Cocktails at Home" is an accessible and practical guide for building a home bar one bottle at a time. This book provides readers with the tools and knowledge needed to mix fantastic cocktails without the need for investing in niche, single-use ingredients that can be both time-consuming and costly.
