Glossy cocktail book launched


Tony Abou-Ganim has developed cocktail programmes for numerous restaurants in San Francisco and New York, as well as the Bellagio Hotel, Las Vegas.

Tony Abou-Ganim has published a cocktail book called The Modern Mixologist: Contemporary Classic Cocktails.

Co-authored with US writer Mary Elizabeth Faulkner and featuring a foreword by Mario Batali, the book combines 60 of Tony’s best recipes and scores of useful tips about bar equipment and ingredients, as well as a brief history of the cocktail and quotes from famous cocktail enthusiasts and authorities. Colour photography by Tim Turner elevates The Modern Mixologist from just another cocktail book into an elegant work that's worthy of display on anyone's coffee table.
