Book Review & Summary:

Revolutionize the way you drink at home with simple recipes and common ingredients -- no obscure liquors or fussy techniques needed -- from the editorial director of Milk Street, J.M. Hirsch. Are you done with generic gin and tonics, mediocre Manhattans and basic martinis? You can use pantry staples and basic liquors to produce more than 200 game-changing craft cocktails worthy of a seat at the bar. Many cocktail books call for hard-to-find ingredients and complicated techniques that can frustrate home cocktail makers. Shake Strain Done shows a better way: If you can shake, strain, stir and turn on a blender, you can make great cocktails. No tedious secondary recipes hidden between the lines. No mysteries. You'll know what each drink will taste like before you pick up a bottle. No fancy equipment needed. A shaker, strainer and spoon are as exotic as it gets. The ingredients are mostly pantry and bar staples--things you already have on hand. Every drink is rated by its characteristics -- Warm, Refreshing, Sweet, Sour, Bitter, Fruity, Herbal, Creamy, Spicy, Strong and Smoky -- to help expand your horizons and find more drinks to love. These are drinks with the sophistication of a high-end speakeasy, minus the fuss, like: The Sazerac 2.0 - a spice cabinet update that takes the classic back to its origins A new White Russian that lightens the load with coconut water instead of cream A grownup Singapore Sling that's fruity without tasting like fruit punch A Scorched Margarita that uses the broiler to char those lemons and limes A feisty new Gin and Tonic in which black pepper is the star ingredient And plenty of originals, like the Pooh Bear. Butter, honey and bourbon? Yes, please! And Mistakes Were Made, for tiki time

Book Summary:

A nonjudgmental, back-to-basics approach to making custom cocktails that's as fun as it is definitive--from a renowned New York City bartender who's worked everywhere from PDT to Momofuku. John deBary is a veritable cocktail expert with a 100-proof personality, a dash of fun, and garnished with flair--there's nothing muddled about him. In Drink What You Want, John breaks down the science of mixology (yes, it's a science) and explains the rules of drink-making. Most important, you'll learn how to tweak any drink, both classic and creative, to your preferences and moods. Are you adventurous or traditional? Sweet or bitter? Brown liquor or clear? While giving newbies a rundown of cocktail culture, lingo, and etiquette, John turns the "cocktail book" concept on its ear by infusing a traditionally formal topic with his fresh, conversational voice. Mixology geeks and bottomless brunchers alike will revel in the craft of the cocktail, from classic to modern to funky. Cocktails are about creativity and setting the mood, and Drink What You Want overflows with both.
