THE PDT COCKTAIL BOOK Has Landed, and the World Takes Note

The long-awaited PDT COCKTAIL BOOK by Jim Meehan with illustrations by Chris Gall drops today, and along with other sites, Eater has offered up a "First Look" at Jim Meehan's PDT Cocktail Book.  Check it out, and also check out the video.  The New York Times' T Magazine kicked off the advance press with "Booze Cruise" by Stephen Heyman.  FIND. EAT. DRINK. then carried a short Q&A with Jim about the book.  Professor Cocktail (aka David Montgomery) was the first to really review the book, saying:  "The PDT Cocktail Book joins Gary Regan's THE JOY OF MIXOLOGY and Dale DeGroff's THE CRAFT OF THE COCKTAIL as the indispensable monographs on modern cocktails and spirits.  It belongs on every cocktail lover's shelf."
