Praise

The Bartender’s Manifesto is the best thing to happen to cocktail lovers since Dale DeGroff’s The Craft of the Cocktail! Toby Maloney has worked behind the stick at some of the most respected cocktail bars in the United States and has dedicated his life to hospitality—in this comprehensive guide, he brilliantly explains the techniques used by the best bartenders to create award-winning drinks. This book should be required reading for both up-and-coming bartenders and home enthusiasts alike who want to know the secrets behind crafting impeccable libations.”—Julie Reiner, Cofounder of Clover Club, Leyenda, and Social Hour Cocktails

“Like skilled alpinists, Maloney and Janzen lead the reader from the trailhead of mixology up a steep path to the base camp of bartending; pointing all along at the summit; where service and hospitality converge in history. Toby’s The Violet Hour is a mountain few will have the fortitude to scale, but you can admire it faithfully from a distance thanks to the meticulously transcribed recipes and profane tales of those who have. This is the Everest of bartending books.”—Jim Meehan, author of Meehan’s Bartender Manual and The PDT Cocktail Book

“Toby Maloney is one of the OGs of the modern renaissance in bartending and drink mixing. Maloney is as crusty as he is creative, and it’s enormously useful to finally have his approach to the craft on record, particularly in a form as entertaining as The Bartender’s Manifesto.”—David Wondrich, author of Imbibe and editor in chief of the Oxford Companion to Spirits & Cocktails

“If anyone is equipped to write a bartender’s manifesto, it’s Toby Maloney, who has worked at or launched some of the best cocktail bars of the century. There’s no nitty-gritty he doesn’t get down to here. He and co-author Janzen discuss everything from bartending philosophies to a cocktail’s narrative arc; season the text with folksy maxims and tall tales; and tie in figures from Olmsted to Thompson. Topping it all may be the most specific drink-building instructions to grace any cocktail manual to date. If cocktails are art, as Maloney asserts, here’s your canvas.”—Robert Simonson, cocktail writer for The New York Times and author of A Proper Drink

“As Pegu Club’s first head bartender, Toby was already a real leader and gifted visionary in his own right. During his tenure, we shared numerous technical conversations, and it is an utter joy to see them so intuitively developed here. Without question, this book reflects a real mastery of technique and understanding. Pure poetry to read.”—Audrey Saunders, founder of the Pegu Club
