Ted and Michael’s book is the finest attempt anyone has made to reveal the movement that culinary cocktail-making has become. Scott Beattie, author, Artisanal Cocktails. I am so very pleasantly surprised to learn that not only do some of our Western Territories have bars, but-if we are to believe this amusing and informative little volume-the conduct of those institutions is frequently placed in the hands of individuals who thoroughly know their business. The images and recipes in this book are wonderful.

They all seem to be what Raymond Chandler describes as "the first quiet drink of the evening in a quiet bar - that's wonderful," in his perfect LA noir, The Long Goodbye. The same character later insists that, "A real gimlet is half gin and half Rose's Lime Juice and nothing else. Saffron Sandalwood Sour Created by Anu Apte of Seattle's Rob Roy.

Left Coast Libations: Nominated for Best Cocktail Book of the Year by Tales of the Cocktail! This fall has seen the publication of another great book: Left Coast Libations by Ted Munat. Ted’s book ascends to a new plateau of inspired cocktail writing. The book is outstanding, outrageous, irreverent, challenging, and enticing.

In the new book Left Coast Libations, Munat and co-author Michael Lazar have created . The 100-plus recipes go further to explore this coastal zeitgeist in a collection that ranges from classic cocktails to seasonally driven drinks.

In the new book Left Coast Libations, Munat and co-author Michael Lazar have created a textual treasure map of West Coast cocktail dens, marking spots from Vancouver to Los Angeles. The book addresses this noteworthy cocktail climate by paying due diligence to the cognoscenti that are responsible for the region's boozy ascent: Portland's Jeffrey Morgenthaler, San Francisco's Neyah White and Seattle's Murray Stenson are just a few that make an appearance on the pages

I read through the book and the first thing I tried to do was find a recipe I could make. First I discarded recipes that would require a ridiculous amount of prep work.

Left Coast Libations. The Art of West Coast Bartending. Beautiful photographs of fifty of the drinks of LCL were taken by Jenn Farrington. Scott introduced Ted to Michael Lazar, who had for some ungodly reason set about the task of making every single cocktail recipe from the booklet, whether they required bacon washed bourbon or homemade bitters or some other such cumbersome and troubling ingredient.

Hi folks - We’ve just received word that Left Coast Libations has been nominated for Best Cocktail Book of the Year by Tales of the Cocktail

0. Suspicious activity or malware.

Original and innovative, the carefully tested recipes and techniques in this guide—collected from the West Coast’s most talented bartenders—are sure to delight and satisfy all cocktail fans from novice to connoisseur. Written in a style that is both playful and appreciative, the book provides invaluable information on topics such as what people ought to know about ice (and don't) and what role egg whites can have in a drink. The mouth-watering recipes and lush photographs featured here will make readers excited to create the amazing cocktails of professional mixologists.

  • This is more than just a coffee table book. It is humorous and fun to read. Once I started reading the little blurbs on the bartenders I couldn't stop, before I knew it I had read the entire book. I also love the recipes in back for making various syrups and mixers. It is nice to have the art of making great cocktails demystified. And it is nice to see hardworking bartenders who love their crafts being recognized. They are artists. I would recommend this book highly. I have bought several more for gifts.

  • This book is an honest look at the current cocktail scene in the major cities along the West Coast. The best part about it is being able to go to the wonderful bars in these cities and then come home and make the drinks yourself.

    The book has two major parts: The bartenders and the drinks.

    The Bartenders: the descriptions at times can seem to be trying too hard, and other times have a sense of inside jokes amongst the brethren behind the stick. Though the bartenders chosen for this book are the best out there. I have met a few of them featured in LCL and can honestly say they are people who make cocktails an art.

    The Drinks: The drinks are great. I've made two so far, the Bardstown and the Filibuster. The cocktails are some of the best out there. Just start making them and working your way through the book.

    Love this book and the bartenders and drinks inside.

  • I live nowhere near any of these places and, if the liquor industry is counting on me to support them, well, bye bye to them. HOWEVER, this book, recommended by a friend, is SO informative and fun to read that I just went out and spent over $100 for cocktail makings. I love reading this book b/ I love to learn about things I would not ordinarily come across. The research is amazing. Who knew that the topic of "ice" contained so much information, e.g. Special kudos to the guy (Michael?) who did the drink research and to the photographer. Beautiful book. I plan to give it to friends for Christmas, maybe along with a cocktail shaker.

  • I just bought this book as a gift to myself. I was recently introduced to the aviation drink and have been wanting to learn more about the art of cocktails. Well, this book is the proof, mixology surely is an art. The images and recipes in this book are wonderful. Great care was obviously taken in the publication of this book and it shows in the detail of the photos and graphics. So far I've only skimmed the pages and once I read the stories of the contributors and host my upcoming soiree, then, I can update the review. However I do believe that a photo is worth a thousand words, and in this book the photos are a plenty. I am so glad I pre-ordered my book!

  • This cleverly written guide into the art of making a good cocktail is a lighthearted and entertaining must-read for those who enjoy a great drink. This beautiful book won't disappoint!

  • The retail price of this book is $24.95, but if you want to make more than a few of the exquisite creations it contains, be prepared to spend a whole lot more. These are not cocktails that can be whipped together with the contents of a typical home bar. More than a third of the 102 drinks require at least one homemade ingredient. These range from the fairly simple (agave nectar syrup) to the fairly complex (smoked cider air), with most somewhere in between (e.g., glazed pecan-infused bourbon). But even those drinks that do not require a homemade concoction almost always call for an unusual spirit or liqueur or two--or four or five. If you already have on hand St. Germain elderflower liqueur, Carpano Antica Formula vermouth, Chartreuse, Aperol, Ramazotti, and Lillet Blanc, you are off to a good start. If you've never heard of any of these things, call your credit card company to verify your spending limit: you've got some shopping to do. Notwithstanding the fact that you might need to take out a second mortgage to make every drink in this book, it could be worth it. Most of the drinks that I've tried have been excellent. Also, if you've been mixing drinks for a while, you can use the recipes as inspiration for your own creations, without necessarily purchasing (or making) every obscure ingredient. Several of the recipes have encouraged me to combine spirits and liqueurs that I wouldn't have previously considered. This then formed the base of an entirely new cocktail. Used in this way, Left Coast Libations can keep you buzzed without making you broke.

  • As the proud owner of a twist peeler directly from the hand of Murray Stenson, I have to praise Ted's wonderful book. Since my daughter introduced me to Seattle's famed Zig Zag Cafe, I've been forced (with little effort) to start trying to make my own cocktails.

    But where to begin? This quirky yet very informative book has made me want to learn more about the art of the cocktail and visit more of the locations where these wizards of mixology practice their arts. It's incredibly informative, tantalizing and fun to read.

  • ...this one is a keeper.

    There's no product placement, no agenda and no corporate sponsorship. Just a beautiful book featuring some really great bartenders, a book made by two guys that really love cocktails.

    For full disclosure though, I'm partisan - two of my drinks are in the book, but the fact is that this is a really great cocktail book. Well done, guys.
