Top critical review
Nice photos, not a mixology book by any stretch

In this book, you will find some very basic cocktail recipes. I bought this for my wife who is a southerner. These are all standard drinks that you would find in any bar book. I was hoping for more historical drinks with variants, suggestions for modifications, etc.
This is essentially a tourist book. It is very gimmicky. It does provide context for a drink (often incomplete and incorrect).
If you're serious about the culture, mixing, etc. I'd look elsewhere. This one looks somewhat promising: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1984823574/ref=sspa_dk_detail_5?psc=1&pd_rd_i=1984823574&pd_rd_w=csSZL&pf_rd_p=45e679f6-d55f-4626-99ea-f1ec7720af94&pd_rd_wg=CurKX&pf_rd_r=RRM9JF59H17FFT8G4N3E&pd_rd_r=c4e8a5ce-dcd6-4dc6-8297-eb06feaa306e&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUE3SUVSRVNRRFJYRjcmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTA5NzEwMjcySENWU0kyTjBQRkxFJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA3ODM0NTAxWEVUNDMySzBJVFhTJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfZGV0YWlsJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
