Product Description

The definitive guide to the contemporary craft cocktail movement, from one of the highest-profile, most critically lauded, and influential bars in the world.
 

Death & Co is the most important, influential, and oft-imitated bar to emerge from the contemporary craft cocktail movement. Since its opening in 2006, Death & Co has been a must-visit destination for serious drinkers and cocktail enthusiasts, and the winner of every major industry award—including America’s Best Cocktail Bar and Best Cocktail Menu at the Tales of the Cocktail convention. Boasting a supremely talented and creative bar staff—the best in the industry—Death & Co is also the birthplace of some of the modern era’s most iconic drinks, such as the Oaxaca Old-Fashioned, Naked and Famous, and the Conference. 

Destined to become a definitive reference on craft cocktails,  Death & Co features more than 500 of the bar’s most innovative and sought-after cocktails. But more than just a collection of recipes,  Death & Co is also a complete cocktail education, with information on the theory and philosophy of drink making, a complete guide to buying and using spirits, and step-by-step instructions for mastering key bartending techniques. Filled with beautiful, evocative photography; illustrative charts and infographics; and colorful essays about the characters who fill the bar each night;  Death & Co—like its namesake bar—is bold, elegant, and setting the pace for mixologists around the world.

Review

“This is a book that will inspire the next generation of bartenders. The Death & Co crew has managed to mix equal measures of hospitality and creativity, and the impact of their experiment will be felt far beyond their modest East Sixth Street saloon. This book extends Death & Co’s reach even farther.” —Dale Degroff, author of The Craft of the Cocktail 

“Death & Co changed the way we drink in America. This elegant, intelligent book—with drink recipes from the ‘Dirty Dozen’ of top bartender/mixologists working in America today (all Death & Co veterans), plus sound, concise advice on every aspect of drink making—will make sure that nobody could possibly forget that.” —David Wondrich, author of Imbibe! and Punch 

 “Death & Co has become an integral part of New York’s cocktail culture, and will remain a part of it for years to come. David and Alex have influenced the way people drink in New York City (and around the world), and I’m constantly inspired whenever I step into their bar. They craft each drink just as I would approach a dish, piecing together the ingredients, testing it tirelessly, striving for perfection, and also trying to connect each recipe to a story. There is a real art, a real passion behind everything they do, and this book will act as a timeless reference for anyone interested in cocktails.” —Daniel Humm, chef/co-owner of Eleven Madison Park and Co-Author of I Love New York 

“A fascinating, in-depth look at one of the best bars out there—brimming with the same attitude and resolve that made Death & Co a true winner in the field. This book is a one-stop shop for anyone interested in cocktails and the bars that serve them, and it’s a brilliant read, to boot.” —Gaz Regan, author of the Joy of Mixology

“With Death & Co, David, Nick, and Alex have created an instant classic for craft cocktail enthusiasts and professionals alike. I’ve found this book to be essential in my home.” —April Bloomfield, chef/owner of The Spotted Pig

If you''re looking for a cocktail book to help you put together a great home bar and start mixing more advanced cocktails this is great but a large number of the recipes are impractical for most home bars. If you are a bartender or bar owner looking to up your skills or the level of complexity at your bar then this is really going to be helpful.

What I like about the book:

I like that this book covers everything: Bar equipment, ice, technique, history, tasting, some "story essays" about the bar, and very important for developing a home bar is that it goes through the different types of spirits and gives you explanations of the different types and specific recommendations for brands to buy. This is step one of what is needed to be a great home bartender.

What I don''t like about the book:

The recipes are a reflection of the Death and Co bar, where expert mixologists are creating very interesting and complex drinks. However this just doesn''t work very well for a home bar. A large percentage of the recipes require something such as "Grapefruit infused Punt E Mes." The book gives you instructions on how to make all of these complex ingredients, but they aren''t practical for a home bar. Therefore almost 90% of the recipes are pretty useless for me.

The index isn''t great. An index is supposed to reference every instance of a word in the book. So you should be able to look up "St. Germain" and it should give you every page where there is a recipe including St. Germain, but the book doesn''t have this. For example in the section of the book on Modifier Liquors it describes St. Germain as "bar tenders katsup" because it has been used so much in so many drinks. I went ahead and bought a bottle but I have yet to find a recipe in the book I can make. There is no way to look for recipes using it other than to go one by one through the whole book, and when I have found one that uses it, the recipe contains one or more other complex ingredients that I don''t have.

Definitely a very good book and I''ve learned very much from it, but it is far from an ideal resource for a home bar enthusiast.

I bought this book on recommendation from a favorite bartender. It''s one of the better-value kitchen books I own: long, super dense, and cloth-bound, with high-quality photos and drawings. It''s part instructions (how to properly shake and stir, how to taste spirits, what types of ingredients go well together, how to form intuition for the right amount of sweet vs. sour), part recipes, and part memoir / vignettes from the NYC bar. It''s pretty impressive how erudite these guys are; they write with convincing authority, and the kind of mastery that makes the book feel like an aspiration that you know you will never fully achieve, but that you can keep turning to again and again to learn more.

It gets five stars because I use it all the time and find it a fount of random wisdom and interesting asides, but I should note a few things:
- There are no vodka recipes...they think vodka is boring.
- Many of the drink recipes require obscure ingredients or expensive liquors, so the actual number of recipes I''ve made from this book so far is kind of small (limited to their "classic cocktails" section). However, this gives one plenty of room to grow and makes it possible for the book to appeal to all kinds of mixologists, from casual to more serious.
- I''m sometimes frustrated by the lack of an index to their recipes, e.g. say I want to find all the recipes that include white (blanc) vermouth, well that isn''t possible. I have to page through the various sections (Classic Cocktails, Gin Stirred, Gin Shaken, etc.) hoping to stumble upon this ingredient.

I bought this book for my wife who has become a pretty good mixologist lately. And what I thought would be a redeeming quality was the words "Modern Classic Cocktails". This was appealing because when my wife and I go out to a nice restaurant either in North Jersey or NYC or wherever we happen to be visiting like Paris, London or Geneva, she''ll order one of their special drinks. And if she likes it, she''ll ask for the recipe. I consider those modern cocktails. So, those words in the title seemed spot on. Well, guess again. She and her friend were hanging out and decided to try and come up with a new drink to offer for an Ugly Sweater party coming up. So they took out this book and began to explore. They made three different drinks and all three were "stinkers" as they put it. They complained that many of the drinks contain 5, 6 and 7 different ingredients, many of which no one would have in their house at any given time. And we are not any given house. I''d say we have anywhere between 75 and 100 bottles of different spirits. I''d say we are better stocked than many local bars. And then there is the fact that not one recipe involves vodka. There is a bit of discussion in the introduction that talks about their reason for not having vodka. Something about it not having much taste or something like that. Had I known that before buying the book, I would have not bought it and found something else. I wouldn''t say the verdict is in yet but consider this an initial review based upon knowledgable bartenders attempting to utilize the recipes in the book. It almost seems as though the authors have created drinks with lots of different and sometimes obscure ingredients merely for the sake of combining lots of different ingredients, and disregarding something as important as taste. I''m going to see how future attempts to use the book go and if they continue on this current path, I will either revise this review or post an updated new one which will likely reduce the rating further.

If you purchased this one after cocktail codex like I did, I think you would have the same impression. Cocktail codex is masterfully curated with a beautiful narrative of the history of the core cocktails and the importance and contribution of each component in a classic like the martini. If it isn’t already, it will become a holy grail text in the bartending world with enough time.

I am a fan of death and co and enjoyed cocktail codex so I felt like this is a good purchase as well. Well written but I felt that it’s biggest flaw is that it is pretty much a big picture book of the history of death and co. The content reflects the title exactly?1?1!1!1 lolololol I know it sounds silly to complain that the book is exactly about d&c ... but like any story book it’s kind of a one and done deal. I don’t think I’m super compelled to pick it up and refer to it like I am with cocktail codex.

As a recent cocktail enthusiast, I wanted a nice coffee table (or cocktail table!) book about cocktails that was more than just walls of text and recipes. This book was exactly what I was looking for. It gives the history of one of the most popular cocktail bars in New York City along with vingettes of various patrons, a day in the life at the bar (with timestamps), and of course recipes of all of their unique cocktails.

This is all illustrated with gorgeous photos and drawings, many of which are full page, so along with the size of the book, it makes an excellent coffee table book.

I''ve already read this book cover to cover (all but the recipes) twice now and will without a doubt say that there won''t be another cocktail book that covers so many topics so well. It offers an interesting look into how the bar operates as well as essential techniques for making cocktails and inventing your own. I''ve already tried a few recipes out of the book and their margarita recipe killed my own, which I had considered my cocktail calling card for years. After reading the negative reviews, I would definitely recommend getting the Kindle version. There are a lot of recipes and the book is insanely well organized, but being able to search and use the hyperlinks is awesome. If you only buy one cocktail book in your entire life, this is the one to own.

I fell in love with this book when I first saw it. It''s beautiful, and full of enticing recipes. And it sort of sucks to actually use.

There are two major flaws with this book.

Firstly, as someone who is perhaps at an intermediate level with cocktails/mixology, the components feel pretty varied. Particularly when you get down to the variety of infusions and house mixes of rum and what have you, it''s very hard to go from any given recipe to another without feeling like you need to buy two more spirits and make a whole new infusion just to try it out.

Secondly, and perhaps most damningly, now that you''ve invested in a new spirit and you want to try to make another drink with it, you''re out of luck. The other cocktail recipe books I''ve been using have indexes that include entries for spirits and major ingredients, showing the recipes that use them. This book does not. If you have bought say apple brandy for one drink and want to get an idea for the spread of other recipes in the book that use apple brandy, you need to.... read through the entire book and find them. Recipes are loosely grouped by major base spirit (vodka, gin, rum, etc) but beyond that you are entirely, frustratingly, on your own.

So ultimately the recipes in the book are far less useful than I had hoped. The methodology and equipment guides in the first half of the book are very useful for someone looking to build a home bar or improve their craft.

This is a great book. Very enjoyable read and inspiring photos. Unique, custom approaches and innovative twists on the old classics.

I am not experienced behind the bar at all and do not have a vast and complex selection of spirits. But... the cocktails that I have tried with the gin, bourbon, liquor, etc.. that I have on hand were really good. I am sure even better if I had that special type of recommended whiskey, etc... Which at some point I will pick up some of the recommended and give it another go.

The stories are fascinating and you come to appreciate the art of the cocktail. And not to sound too sappy... the artistry and passion at Death & Co.

The Death & Co. book is a fantastic read for bartenders at an intermediate level. The book itself contains a history of the bar, as well as guides on creating the perfect atmosphere, customer service advice and of course cocktail recipes. Some of the classics have multiple recipes to appeal to the wide range of tastes customers have, and explain how to identify which recipe to use in which situation. There is also a selection of flavour pairing wheels and a vast guide on bar techniques. I particularly enjoyed the guide on how to stir multiple drinks using just one hand. The pictures in the book are beautiful, as well as the cover of the book being so gorgeous that it looks incredible facing forward on my bookshelf. I hope to one day visit the bar.

Since buying this book I have expanded my already sizable bar by more than 2/5ths it''s size. I now have a shelf devoted entirely to vermouths and amaros. I''m not trying to brag, I''m trying to say that this book inspires you to try all the fussy ingredients in their intricate incarnations because the results and the fun are hard to contend with. As a former bartender, I confess that much of the nomenclature, techniques, and potions were unknown to me. It was nice to uncover so much to learn and fetishize in the world of mixology. The book''s language and detailed explanations make it accessible for the novice but their attention to the minutiae and the abstract keep it fascinating even for the more well-worn barkeep. Can''t recommend it enough.

I''ve been using this book for years now, and have made many of the drinks within and visited the bar in person since my purchase. It''s a fantastic resource, containing recipes for hundreds of delicious cocktails. Lots of good theory to be read if you go beyond the recipes as well, detailing how the bartenders at Death & Co go about creating new drinks and flavours that they have found go together well. It''s been an invaluable resource since I purchased it, and helped me expand my home bar from the dregs of my university days to a collection that allows me to make a good number of the drinks recipes contained within the book. Many of the recipes can be made with some core purchases, with very few recipes calling for the sort of ingredient that will sit in the back of your cabinet unused for years. Whether you''re new to mixing drinks, or you''ve got several years experience behind you, you can''t go wrong with this book.
