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.

An ultra-rare and signed first edition of "The Fine Art Of Mixing Drinks" by David Embury from 1948 came up for sale, not sure how recently, but it's still available. Add it to your birthday wish list now before it flies off the shelf!
