I don't think I have attempted a book on cocktails before. I asked for this one to review because I am a gin drinker.

I found the book too flippant and disrespectful of non-specialist readers. It is full of in-jokes and references to people, places and cocktails that fill Mr.Regan's life, not mine, and is a far cry from the thoughtful essays written by, for example, Wayne Curtis in "The Atlantic Monthly," whose writing I find interesting and informative.

If you know cocktails and read the cocktail literature then this book will probably excite you. Me? I wanted to smack the author for saying that, if polled, 90% of bartenders might say their fave cocktail is a Negroni. Try out that poll in Iowa and see how the stats work.

I received a review copy of "The Negroni" by Gary Regan (Ten Speed) through NetGalley.com. ( )
