Knowledge is the greatest tool behind a bar. A good bartending guide is essential to both the seasoned professional and the amateur mixologist. As you embark on a journey into the world of cocktails you'll most likely come across many recipes that ask you to shake this and muddle that along with other common bartending techniques. Whether you need to know how to make a particular cocktail or you need tips on garnishing with lemon peels, having a bartending guide handy will answer most of your questions in a pinch.
