The Curious Bartender

There's a big difference between simply pouring someone a bourbon and coke, and carefully crafting the perfect Old Fashioned. Skill, patience, ingredients — all these things go into making a cocktail memorable and delicious. In The Curious Bartender: The Artistry and Alchemy of Creating the Perfect Cocktail ($20), they dive deep into the art of mixing drinks, spotlighting an assortment of classic drinks, discussing where they came from, and exploring who invented them. Finally, they take these cocktails and reinvent them, adding new variations to bring some of these classics back to life.

  • Bentley: The Book

    Rarely do incredible performance and iconic design go hand-in-hand — but throughout its years, the British carmaker has managed to combine powerful cars with stunning aesthetics in a way that few have been able to match. Bentley: The Book ($90) chronicles nearly a century of their efforts at building unmistakeable cars, from James Bond's first, the Bentley 4½ Litre, to the modern-day marvel, the Bentley Continental GT. With beautiful photographs accompanied by detailed essays on the history of the cars, this hardcover book will be the perfect complement to any British car enthusiast's coffee table.

  • The Impossible Collection of Motorcycles

    So maybe you own a bike — even a couple — and if you're lucky, you might have yourself a small collection of bikes. But odds are, you'll never own a complete collection of the 100 most-desired bikes of the last 100 or so years. That said, you can at least ogle them in book form with the Impossible Collection of Motorcycles: The 100 Most Coveted Motorcycles of the Twentieth Century ($600). It covers everything from the 1903 Harley-Davidson Serial #1 to the 1999 Honda NSR500 GP, with gorgeous photographs and information on each model. While it may not be as good as riding the real things, it's a pretty decent place to start.
