Cocktail Kingdom

Cocktail Kingdom is my go to place for anything cool and unique that is bar related.  They have an obscure collection of bar books, bitters, syrups, glassware, tools, and much more.  Looking for that hard-to-find pre-prohibition cocktail book that uses gomme syrup? This is the place.  Need to get some new bitters that your corner bodega doesn’t carry? Done.  You won’t find your Crate & Barrel cookie cutter bar tools here, but if you’re a serious bar man (or woman) and you want serious tools, this is the place to go.

My personal favorite book on this site is Harry Johnson’s bar manual. It not only gives you a whole bunch of drink recipes (published in 1882), but it also provides  a glimpse into that era with chapters devoted to how to run a bar, how much to pay your staff and how to make money.  Brilliant.
