The rest of the work consists of lists of bar supplies, bar tools, merchandising ideas, and special event concepts. The Cocktail and Mixed Drink Recipes (with Stenger's name once again specified), consists of forty recipes, including two punches, and a number of large batch cocktail. Tips for Bartenders, with thirty-five brief elements of good bartending practice, is described as having been developed by Stenger, for a class he gave at the Southern California Restaurant Association, and offers permission to copy and post these tips for the staff. Some light soil to printed bluish-gray wrappers, titled and with an image of a martini in black.
