All week, Jeffrey Morgenthaler has been sharing cocktail techniques and recipes from The Bar Book -- today, we're rounding them all up and giving away one last copy of the book.

This week, Clyde Common's Jeffrey Morgenthaler inspired us to step away from the bar and turn our kitchens into the coolest new cocktail spot in town: He revolutionized our gin and tonics. He dispelled our fears of egg whites. And of course, he made good use of all our overgrown mint in a fresh take on the mojito. Now, our biggest problem is picking which of these drinks we're going to make tonight.
