Synopsis: More drink. Less drunk.
You deserve a great cocktail--and you don't have to over-indulge to get it! Shims--serious, low-alcohol cocktails--are where everyone can come together, whether it's for the one drink of the evening or when this is but the first of many.
This book is your invitation to a world of delicious, sophisticated drinks which provide all their pleasures without walloping you over the head with booze. Celebrate two centuries of the cocktail with 53 recipes for every taste, from the sunny cheerfulness of a Ben's Good Humor to slow sippers like the Bitter Giuseppe. Cheers!
Lavishly illustrated with 79 vibrant photos by Kelly Puleio.
From the Author:
I've been studying low-alcohol cocktails and collecting recipes since before I coined the term 'shim' in 2008. In preparation for this book I revisited about 500 recipes from 150 years of cocktail books and other sources. I also solicited low-alcohol recipes from bartenders. From this pool, I narrowed down to approximately 200 recipes which were tested with friends. My testing group intentionally included a wide variety of drinkers from lightweights to whiskey snobs, including some who usually do not choose cocktails in preference to beer and wine. Their feedback combined with my curation to create a balanced sampling of the great variety of drinks in the shim category.
Once the final 53 recipes were selected, I again contacted bartenders and others in the cocktail world to bring their voices into the book. I also confirmed the history of each recipe with the goal of providing as accurately as possible the origin of these drinks. Where I was able to connect with living drink creators, I included their thoughts on the cocktail. The book was tested with beta readers representing cocktail fans, industry professionals, and those new to the subject. Fortunately, all this hard work was also tremendous fun and I thank everyone involved, especially you, the reader. Enjoy!
