The Bourbon Bartender by Jane Danger and Alla Lapushchik

Once that’s done, the sky is the limit with what you can do with the resulting spirit, and whiskey experts Jane Danger and Alla Lapushchik have penned this book to help you made the most of your Bourbon.

Among such classics as the Manhattan, Old Fashioned and Whiskey Daisy, there are also cutting-edge cocktails such as the Paper Plane, Ex-Pat and Battleship Julep.

The book is also packed with information about the history of Bourbon, its influence on American culture, and some of the best Bourbon bars in the States.
