Slim Volumes With Scores of Cocktail Ideas

A collection of 100 cocktail recipes — grouped in booklets according to the dominant spirit (amaro, Champagne, gin, rum, sherry, tequila and mezcal, whiskey and vodka) then boxed together — makes for a cunning reference tool or gift. Around a dozen drinks, classics and others from bars around the country, are included in each tiny volume.

“The Mini Bar: 100 Essential Cocktail Recipes” by the Editors of Punch, $20.
