“21st century bartenders have taken the cocktailian craft to levels I never dreamed of and Scott Beattie is at the forefront of this movement.  From a simple gin and tonic to complex modern day masterpieces like the Thai Monkey and the Grapes of Roth, Scott’s drinks are works of art.  In short, he is a genius mixologist.  I’m thinking of spending the next twelve months drinking my way through this book.”
– Gary Regan, author of “The Joy of Mixology”

“The most extreme practitioner of this cocktailian focus on fresh and local ingredients is Cyrus’ Scott Beattie . . . the drinks that Beattie makes with this bounty are uniformly gorgeous.”
Gourmet, October 2006

“Beattie instinctively brings the freshness, the immediacy, of northern California cuisine to all of his cocktails”
Food Arts, June 2006

“Scott Beattie turns cocktail creation into an extreme sport . . . the devil is the details”
San Francisco Chronicle, March 2006

“Just like chefs, mixologists are proving that it’s all about quality ingredients --- from seasonal herbs and fruits to top shelf spirits and homemade mixers.  And nobody’s cocktail menu proves that better than Scott Beattie’s at Cyrus in Sonoma wine country.  His drinks are as sophisticated as the restaurant’s world-class cuisine.”
– Bon Appetit, April 2007

"Beattie's book is a giant leap for cocktail-kind...The beauty of this book goes way beyond the petal-porn of its edible-flower garnishes. Working through a few of Beattie's recipes will give you new skills and techniques,so even if you don't have access to pineapple guavas, you will look at the produce section in a fresh light."
