I have this book which is surprisingly good:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Classic-1000-Cocktails-Robert-Cross/dp/0572028520/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1374273976&sr=1-1&keywords=1000+cocktail+recipes

As mentioned earlier in this thread most drinks are riffs on classics. This book is old school & features drink families Id never heard of

E.g. the Zoom - http://www.diffordsguide.com/cocktails/recipe/2132/zoom

I don't have it yet but I think 'To Have & Have Another' will have some good recipes for strong drinks:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/To-Have-Another-Hemingway-Companion/dp/0399537643/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1374273851&sr=8-1&keywords=to+have+and+have+another

Anyone got it?

The "Liquid Vacation" recipes may taste good but the few I saw in a book review all relied on artificially flavored rums and vodkas. With 25 - 30 classic rums always on hand I refuse to start buying flavored spirits! Plus it goes against my devotion to classic cocktails. I quickly abandoned Fuzzy Navels and Sex on the Beach. My liver deserves better.
