About The PDT Cocktail Book

A book for those who've made the pilgrimmage to Please Don't Tell, for those who plan to, someday, and for those who don't know yet that they plan to someday.

This cocktail book is bursting with sensational cocktails created by Jim Meehan, the nationally renowned mixologist who put New York's PDT on the map, and may have just ushered in the modern speakeasy cocktail era.

Beautifully illustrated, beautifully designed, and beautifully crafted—just like its namesake—this is the ultimate bar book by NYC's most meticulous bartender. 

To say that PDT is a unique bar is an understatement. To gain access, you walk into a raucous hot dog stand, step into a phone booth, and get permission to enter the serene cocktail lounge.

Here Jim Meehan, PDT's innovative first owner and mixmaster, has revolutionized bar books, too, offering all 304 cocktail recipes available at PDT plus behind-the-scenes secrets.

From his bar design, tools, and equipment to his techniques, food, and spirits, it's all here, stunningly illustrated by Chris Gall.

"Jim Meehans book is, as the subtitle says, a manual for bartenders, and one that will undoubtedly become a bible for many of them. But any cook--or, for that matter, person--whos seriously interested in mixology will quickly realize its the definitive work, a roadmap for a lifetime of amazing cocktails." — Mark Bittman, New York Times columnist and author of How to Cook Everything 

"Americans have always loved drinking, but in the past five years or so America has recommitted itself to learning to drink well! Jim Meehan has helped lead this joyful renaissance, but his specific influence has been to decouple drink perfection from pompousness. Quality drinking should be as unintimidating and fun as it is delicious and smart: thats Jim Meehans doing. Im so glad hes written this beautiful book -- shake yourself up an Applejack Rabbit, sit down, and read this like a novel".—Rachel Maddow, host of The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC 

"Ive imbibed every drink in this book; whether I can recall all the nights spent at PDT is another story. Jim Meehan has written a manifesto for aspiring drunks and bartenders alike." —David Chang, chef/owner of Momofuku
