About the Author:

Tony Abou-Ganim grew up in the bar business, learning the craft from his cousin Helen David at the Brass Rail Bar in Port Huron, Michigan, before going on to develop the cocktail programmes of numerous restaurants in San Francisco (working with Harry Denton) and New York (working with Mario Batali) and at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. He operates his own beverage consulting firm specialising in bar staff training, product education, and cocktail development, and also serves as the national ambassador of the US Bartenders Guild.

Review:

"If you've ever had a great—or even a good—cocktail in Las Vegas, one of the people you need to thank is Tony Abou-Ganim." —Liquor.com

"[The Modern Mixologist] is both fascinating—from a historical perspective—as well as informational, with all sorts of helpful photos on techniques, tools and other miscellaneous requirements to becoming a better bar chef." —Steve Dolinsky, Adventures in Urban Eating

"One of the top 25 most influential cocktail personalities of the past century...[Tony Abou-Ganim's] influenced countless bartenders and has built an empire of modern bartending." —Imbibe magazine

"Abou-Ganim is now one of the giants in his industry, yet his new book, The Modern Mixologist, makes cocktails accessible. There is no insider's regalia; there are no navel-gazing anecdotes. Aptly named, The Modern Mixologist is a guide to being just that." —Chicago Tribune

"It is a challenge to produce a cocktail book that is unlike all of the others on the market and it is a task that I believe Tony Abou-Ganim has successfully accomplished in his first book, The Modern Mixologist: Contemporary Classic Cocktails." —Colleen Graham, About.com: Cocktails

"Who better to deliver an advanced course in home bartending than the 'Modern Mixologist' himself? Tony Abou-Ganim's new book covers specialized glassware, infusions and seasonal drinks, along with 60 of his best recipes." —The Tasting Table

"Despite his stature, Abou-Ganim's one of the more humble and passionate successful food people I've met. This comes across in the book. Most refreshingly, he's not judgmental or pedantic. He doesn't vilify vodka or make amateurs feel dumb. His only non-negotiable is the pursuit of quality." —Mike Nagrant, New City magazine

This new book combines 60 of Abou-Ganim's very best recipes alongside practical bar tips, cocktail history, as well as quotes from leading authorities and industry personalities." — Bar & Beverage Magazine
