9780991403608: What We Drink: a collection of cocktail recipes

A beautiful, straight-forward introduction to making great cocktails at home.

This book answers the question, "How can I make a great cocktail at home?"

We found that many of the existing cocktail books do not work well for the novice that is just getting started. We spent more than a year testing recipes and instructions with friends, all to put together a book that we think clearly and simply describes the basics of making a great cocktail.

  • The book includes 27 recipes, most of which are classics, and collectively demonstrate a broad cross-section of the world of cocktails.
  • Cocktail making technique is introduced progressively through each recipe, so readers do not have to read through a bunch of text before starting to make a drink. An instruction index is available at the end to refresh the reader's memory when needed.
  • Readers are exposed to basic cocktail theory through the recipes. For example, many people do not realize that sweetness can be countered with acidity, so if you accidentally put too much sugar in your cocktail, you can easily fix it by adding some lemon juice.

The book is also as beautiful as it is functional. Each cocktail is accompanied by a full page high quality photograph. It looks as good lying on a coffee table in your living room as it will in your kitchen or home bar.
