Book Description

10 Dec 2013
This is the ultimate guide to blending 50 delectable whisky cocktails, including traditional drinks such as the Perfect Manhattan, Jack Frost and Mint Julep, as well as more unusual blends such as the Buckaroo, Coffee Eggnog and Jamaica Shake. It includes a history of whisky, its varieties and brands, from world-famous names such as Glenlivet and Jack Daniel's to less well-known types such as Suntory from Japan. It features clear instructions, photographs of the finished drinks, and useful hints and tips throughout. It includes handy advice about essential cocktail-making equipment and how to choose the right glasses, with a section on "tricks of the trade", giving expert suggestions for preparing and presenting drinks using professional-looking garnishes. Whisky - meaning "water of life" - was first produced in the 15th century. Originally from Scotland and Ireland, it is now produced in many countries, including the United States, Canada and Japan. Relating the story of whisky and the differences between the main varieties, such as Scotch, bourbon and Tennessee whiskey, this book gives you the knowhow needed to make whisky cocktails. Covering essential equipment, including the cocktail shaker and 7 varieties of glasses, you'll become an expert in no time. You can learn about muddling, frosting glasses and making syrups to create special mixes. The book will help you to master the classic recipes and discover more unusual cocktails. The range of drinks uses a wide array of ingredients, so you'll always have something new and interesting to try. With easy-to-understand instructions, over 100 mouthwatering photographs and useful hints and tips throughout, this handbook is accessible to even the most inexperienced home bartender, while also providing something extra for the whisky connoisseur.

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.
