2010 Holiday Gift Guide: Eating and Drinking

Speakeasy bookSpeakeasy: The Employees Only Guide to Classic Cocktails Reimagined | $24.99
Employees Only is a New York City bar at which old-timey looking guys with waxed mustaches serve meticulously crafted cocktails. Chances are, it’s also pretty far from your house. Which is why it was so nice of the owners to write Speakeasy, in which they reveal innovative recipes that utilize fresh ingredients — sorry, no Rose’s lime juice allowed — to create some of the best cocktails you’ll ever have.
