Steve Quirk took an interest in cocktails when serving in the navy. He found himself experimenting with all types of spirits and liqueurs and creating his own recipes to share with his friends and family. He began to compile as many recipes as he could and his hobby soon became an obsession. This is his third book after the successful Cocktail Bible (2010), which had more than 4,000 recipes.
