Mixologist, raconteur, and author A. J. Rathbun returns with the newest addition to his spirits collection. Following in the tradition of his previous cocktail books, Ginger Bliss and the Violet Fizz features 200 recipes that demystify all manner of liquors and liqueurs, focusing both on the drinks of old, made popular during the early twentieth century, as well as on more contemporary concoctions. Like a good gathering, the book includes a mix of lively, vivacious stories and sidebars along with serious cocktail knowledge that will appeal to newly minted mixologists as well as to seasoned pros. Chapters are organized by flavor profile and cover citrus, floral, fruity, herbal, nutty, spicy, sweet, and vermouth-based. This hybrid approach to old and new includes a breadth of information and recipes not typically found in modern cocktail books, with historical cocktail appeal that's fun to read.

From the Back Cover:

PRAISE for GINGER BLISS AND THE VIOLET FIZZ:   "As always, A.J. Rathbun serves his cocktails with style. I've been following him for years, and he hasn't steered me wrong yet. Ginger Bliss and the Violet Fizz is a charming and informative book that's a must for all cocktailians." (Gary Regan, a.k.a. Gaz Regan, author of The Joy of Mixology and host of ArdentSpirits.com)   "A.J. Rathbun celebrates the cocktail revival with a storyteller's voice in his lively new Ginger Bliss and the Violet Fizz. He weaves throughout his recipes a story of new spirits and liqueurs, aromatic wines, and amaros--some lost from our shelves since Prohibition and now returning anew. He includes both classic recipes (some intact, and some tweaked to accommodate a lost ingredient or a new variation) and original recipes that pay tribute to the growing legion of talented craft bartenders." (Dale DeGroff, author of The Craft of the Cocktail and The Essential Cocktail)
