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:

Pairing notorious gangsters and mobsters from movies and television with signature cocktails, this pocket-sized collection of boozy recipes is so much fun, it's criminal. It's been a century since the prohibition sent Americans scurrying to speakeasies and decades since the movie industry turned mobsters into celebrities. Now the two worlds collide in this highly original collection that creates signature cocktails for gangsters of every stripe. There's Tommy Shelby, who likes his Irish whiskey strong and stiff with just a splash of sweet vermouth and bitters. Billie Frechette mixes gin with honey and lemon, making the drink almost as sweet as her love for John Dillinger. There's also Mia Wallace, who gets a boozy take on a classic milkshake. Famous characters from much-loved recent TV series including The Sopranos, Peaky Blinders, and Boardwalk Empire are seen alongside iconic roles from classic films such as The Godfather, Goodfellas, Scarface, and Miller's Crossing. Each character and drink is illustrated by acclaimed comic book artist Shawn McManus. Whether you're a budding mixologist or gearing up to watch The Godfather, this handy book provides the perfect blend of slick recipes and popular culture.

Book Summary:

The newly updated edition of David Wondrich’s definitive guide to classic American cocktails. Cocktail writer and historian David Wondrich presents the colorful, little-known history of classic American drinks--and the ultimate mixologist's guide--in this engaging homage to Jerry Thomas, father of the American bar. Wondrich reveals never-before-published details and stories about this larger-than-life nineteenth-century figure, along with definitive recipes for more than 100 punches, cocktails, sours, fizzes, toddies, slings, and other essential drinks, along with detailed historical and mixological notes. The first edition, published in 2007, won a James Beard Award. Now updated with newly discovered recipes and historical information, this new edition includes the origins of the first American drink, the Mint Julep (which Wondrich places before the American Revolution), and those of the Cocktail itself. It also provides more detail about 19th century spirits, many new and colorful anecdotes and details about Thomas's life, and a number of particularly notable, delicious, and influential cocktails not covered in the original edition, rounding out the picture of pre-Prohibition tippling. This colorful and good-humored volume is a must-read for anyone who appreciates the timeless appeal of a well-made drink-and the uniquely American history behind it.

Book Summary:

A complete history of one of the world's most iconic cocktails--now the poster child of the modern cocktail revival--with fifty recipes for classic variations as well as contemporary updates. No single cocktail is as iconic, as beloved, or as discussed and fought-over as the Old-Fashioned. Its formula is simple: just whiskey, bitters, sugar, and ice. But how you combine those ingredients—in what proportion, using which brands, and with what kind of garnish—is the subject of much impassioned debate. The Old-Fashioned is the spirited, delightfully unexpected story of this renowned and essential drink: its birth as the ur-cocktail in the nineteenth century, darker days in the throes of Prohibition, re-ascension in the 1950s and 1960s (as portrayed and re-popularized by Don Draper on Mad Men), and renaissance as the star of the contemporary craft cocktail movement. Also featured are more than forty cocktail recipes, including classic variations, regional twists, and contemporary updates from top bartenders around the country. All are accessible, delicious, and elegant in their simplicity, demonstrating the versatility and timelessness of the Old-Fashioned formula. With its rich history, stunning photography, and impeccable recipes, The Old-Fashioned is a celebration of one of America’s greatest bibulous achievements. It is a necessary addition to any true whiskey- or cocktail-lover’s bookshelf, and destined to become a classic on par with its namesake beverage.

Inventive enough to appease the experienced cocktail creator but approachable enough for complete beginners, Bubbly proves that a splash of champagne can make any moment a cause for celebration. From the Author There aren’t hundreds of recipes in this book, because each one had to earn its place in your kitchen, the kitchen of a stranger who’s welcomed me in. I don’t take your precious leisure time—your seasons and gatherings and free moments lightly. The cost and effort I’ll ask you to spend on any one step or ingredient must be justified by a proportionate gain in flavor. I promise you that none of these drinks are dull, and that your loved ones will love them. I promise that I’ve described the absolute best way to make each drink without compromise, but also the simplest way to do so. The dry practicality that went into the development of these recipes found balance in the pure joy of dreaming them up and of imagining you enjoying each one. I pictured you in your own kitchens and couches and beaches and backyards, experiencing the pure bliss that is a perfectly mixed drink. I hope that you’ll return to these pages whenever you’re in need of that bliss, over and over again. —Colleen Jeffers
