The basic and indispensable manual that every bartender needs: an authentic cocktail masterclass.

A must read and an indispensable tool for professionals and cocktail lovers. A fundamental book that aims to fully explore the senses and use them in the creation of cocktails.

Unlike other books on the world of cocktails, this one does not focus on the recipes themselves (although it also contains about fifty), but on the initial concept of its gestation in the creative process and why a cocktail is prepared one way and not another.

A very visual work, with attractive illustrations and a fundamental theoretical content that explains everything you need to know to get started in this profession and learn all the details from start to finish about the world of bars, drinks and cocktails.

All based on the recipe for success: signature creations; application of new and never-before-seen techniques; use of unusual ingredients; expert professionals; a colorful and eclectic décor; a spectacular menu -both in terms of content and presentation-; tenacity and leadership.

Highlights Guru


Diego Cabrera brings together in this timeless and groundbreaking book everything you need to know to become a great bartender.


Diego Cabrera is the bartender closest to Ferran Adrià’s spirit of innovation, non-conformity and permanent questioning of the established and his philosophy of continuous research.


Drinks International magazine, one of the most important in the sector, has selected him as one of the 100 best bartenders in the world. In Spain there are only two bartenders who can boast of being included on this exclusive list.

A profuse and beautifully illustrated work, very easy to read, understand and assimilate, written in a colloquial and easy-to-grasp language, which seeks to go far beyond the usual classic repertoire of recipes to become the absolute modern reference manual, from the hand of one of the most important figures in the cocktail world.

Diego Cabrera runs Salmon Guru, considered the best bar in Spain and a world reference, the temple of cocktails in our country, which is currently ranked 17th on the list of the World’s 50 Best Bars.

The bar has won several awards and distinctions such as the award for Best Cocktail Bar in Spain, Best Cocktail Menu in Spain at the Coaster Awards, and One of the Best International Openings of the Year (by Salmon Guru) according to Tales of the Cocktails, the annual congress held in New Orleans, in addition to the National Gastronomy Award in 2018.
