Warning: Great for the coffee table, but not USEFUL if you want to make drinks

I think this is a 5 star product IF you know what you''re getting. I didn''t, and want to help others.

In short, there isn''t a single recipe in this cookbook that we could actually make without purchasing serious cooking supplies (not ingredients, supplies).

So, if you are buying this cookbook as a book to read, a coffee table book, a gorgeous book, a book to think about how you might spend your retirement years, you have the right expectations.

If you are buying this cookbook to make cocktails with (and you don''t have all the necessary hardware required by molecular gastronomy) you will be really, really disappointed.

The longer version
- We''re foodies and whatever the equivalent is for drinks
- We''re also into great design
- We love making cocktails, and this seemed like a fun way to add some new tricks
- But we were disappointed -- literally, we couldn''t use a single recipe in this book without spending $100+ on equipment
- So, it''s a gorgeous coffee table book, but not useful to us.
- So we returned it

I''m mostly hoping to warn people who might buy this as a gift for someone else -- know that that person might be similarly disappointed.

In purchasing the book, I was really excited to try to make a few at home. However, what I came to realize is that the book and recipes were released to the public because you''re very unlikely to spend the effort and energy to make these cocktails. "We''re happy to share because you''ll never do it." And even though, what I thought i''d be getting was different, this book is still worth every penny. The photography is amazing and constantly has visitors leafing through the pages, amazed.

Beautiful Book with Impossible To Make Drinks (read special ingredients and very special equipment)

This book is stunning in its implementation and photography - strikingly beautiful in fact. HOWEVER, the equivalent would be NASA putting out a coffee table book on the Saturn V with assembly instructions. I am a retired schooled professional chef and even I don''t have the equipment or ingredients in this book. I am sure thiese drinks are wonderfully compelling, subtly delicious and visually spectacular as demonstrated in this book BUT you will need sincere devotion to many molecular gastronomy techniques (which are not explained) and access many ingredients that are not available to the general public or are available in such quantities that you will never need to buy them again in your lifetime (which of course reverberates into costs). A real shame and an incredible disappointment, a sadness actually.. I had quite high hopes for this book and its unique if not startling repetoire. You will need to ask yourself for the 7-10 or so drinks you may probably be able to create, do they justify the cost of the book and perhaps the cost of equipment. In the right hands and budget, this is a five star book.... in mine, a dream from which I have awoken.

This book is beautiful, with inspiring pictures and great cocktails you can try your hand at if you have the courage. I was not disappointed as some other reviewers because I already had the majority of basic tools in my kitchen, though some will be out of range for anyone but a high end restaurant/lounge. With that said I was looking for a challenge and found it.

**Also, as a note, to those that are complaining about it not coming with the custom box, as you may have seen on social media... There are two versions of this book, this is the standard hardcover edition. It is the reserve edition that comes with the box to keep the book in and is the version that has been shown on social media, it is also more expensive. Just an FYI

I bought 3 copies of this book based on an ad I saw on Instagram.

The book was poorly shrink wrapped and not delivered in the original Hard-Cover sleeve as advertised!!

I buy a lot of very pricey books and most come in a nice outer sleeve. The ad showed this great sleeve presentation and it was not delivered like that ... Misrepresentation yet again!!

SO GOOD. I''m obsessed with this thing. We have a dozen-odd contemporary cocktail books on our shelves at home, and this one has done the most to break the mold and science-ize cocktails since Liquid Intelligence -- but in a surprisingly approachable way. The book has inspired a scavenger hunt around our city for funky ingredients like huckleberry and xantham gum, which has been fun in an of itself -- but we''ve been pleasantly surprised as well with how many recipes we''ve been able to complete at home (with the occasional McGyvering (but they lay out a helpful creative vision for that in the front)). Beyond being probably the most delicious drinks we''ve ever made at home, the book is obscenely beautiful. A must for bibliophiles and photophiles, even if cocktails aren''t in your wheelhouse. But there''s something for everyone -- non-alcoholic drinks, a home beer brewing recipe, notes on the creativity in general. We''re making the flight of Chartreuse blueberry-melon-pineapple variations tonight, and it''s all I can think about right now. In any case, hats off to the Aviary team. This thing is amazing.
