Making Cocktails Book Collection

Cocktails are not what I think of first when discussing whisky. My drink of choice is a top shelf single malt scotch. Yet there are times when a cocktail fits the bill; and old cocktail guides, as well as new publications, make for entertaining reading.  Making cocktails and tasting them is even more pleasurable!

In  instances where the book does not identify an author the publishing company is listed.
