The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book
The Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York is one of the most iconic hotels in the world, host to presidents, celebrities and dignitaries for over 100 years. Frank Caiafa, one of the most sought-after cocktail consultants in New York was tapped in 2005 to revamp the legendary Peacock Alley bar in the Waldorf Astoria and create an entirely new beverage program. In the decade since, the Peacock Alley bar has bridged the gap between a century of tradition and a budding cocktail renaissance. Now, Caiafa has tasked himself with reviving another Waldorf Astoria tradition with The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book. The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book blends recipes, history, and how-to for a fascinating cocktail journey for an enthusiast at any level, from first-time home bartender to a professional. Each recipe includes variations, tips, and history of the drink, so you can master the basics and then get adventurous.
