Book Description

18 Sep 2013
This is the ultimate companion for creating delicious drinks using spirits, liqueurs, wines, beers and mixers. It shows you how to make perfect cocktails, including all-time classics such as the Singapore Sling, Margarita and Pina Colada, and more unusual drinks such as Duck Soup, Rite of Spring and Passion Punch. It includes a complete guide to the array of bartending equipment available, and a useful glossary to help you differentiate between a chaser and an aperitif, a fizz and a frappe. A basic techniques section explains how to measure, mix and pour drinks, with step-by-step photographs showing how to frost a glass, use a cocktail shaker and make decorative fruit twists. This beautiful volume is an essential reference guide for every home bartender, covering a vast array of cocktails and drinks, and how to make them. There are instructions for making both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, accompanied by glorious photographs. Many of the best-known cocktails are featured, as well as some more unusual drinks to try. Here are traditional formulas of the 1920s Jazz Age, such as Maiden's Blush, 1950s investions, such as My Fair Lady, drinks from the 1980s cocktail revival, such as Oasis, concotions popular in bars today, such as Long Island Iced Tea, and tasty non-alcoholic mixes, such as Humzinger. With a guide to bartending equipment, glasses and garnishes, this book is the perfect companion for anyone interested in making mixed drinks, from the amateur novice to the expert.

More About the Author

I have been writing about wine, other drinks and restaurants since the beginning of the 1990s. In the past decade, my work has included a widely acclaimed cultural history of intoxication, Out Of It (Penguin) and the multi-disciplinary Humanity: An Emotional History (Atlantic, published in the United States as A Natural History of Human Emotions). My work has been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Russian, Chinese and Korean. I write for the Guardian Books site, as well as a number of specialist drink publications and websites, and I review books for World of Fine Wine magazine.

In 2010, after 16 years of living in Brighton, I headed southwest and am now in beautiful Torbay.
