Official book description:

Once upon a time, ordering a cocktail at a bar was the kind of thing an aging lothario might do to impress a girl. But these days, knowing your Margarita from your Mojito, and your Old-Fashioned from your Tom Collins, is essential knowledge for every modern gent. In The Gentleman's Guide to Cocktails, Alfred Tong will teach you all you need to know about the fine art of mixology. From tools of the trade, to muddling and mixing, schmoozing and shaking, and including secrets from some of the world's best bartenders, you'll be mixing with mojo in no time. Hone your skills with over 100 recipes, ranging from classics like Bloody Marys and Whiskey Sours to modern marvels such as the Flirtini, the Don Draper and Under the Boardwalk. Slick and stylish, dapper and dandy, The Gentleman's Guide to Cocktails will turn you into the man who mixes. Is it worth the time just to get a drink, I hear you ask? Well yes, it does require some effort, but then so does having a suit made, seducing a woman or landing that contract. Doing it properly matters. This book is going to show you how.

Publishing behemoth Random House is the largest English language publisher in the world, with books of all kinds including the best in fiction, nonfiction and children’s literature. Random House first made international news by successfully defending in court the U.S. publication of James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, setting a major legal precedent for freedom of speech. Beginning in the 1930s, the company moved into publishing for children, and over the years has become a leader in the field. Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the highly successful American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by the equally successful unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language. It continues to publish numerous reference works, including the Random House Webster's College Dictionary.
