Synopsis

A fully-illustrated, global celebration of classic and cutting-edge cocktails

This definitive cocktail recipe book for the home bartender includes 610 cocktail recipes from 6 continents and 60 countries, spanning 500 years. With most cocktails only including three or four ingredients, there is something for novice drink-makers and expert bartenders alike.

Drinks range from renowned iconic classics to lesser-known regional specialties to influential bespoke drinks - each reflecting the era, location, or bar that inspired it. In this book you will also learn how to set up your home bar, with advice on bar tools, glassware, syrups, garnishes, and more.

Spirited is organized by cocktail style, with notes on country or origin, era of invention, and infographic icons showcase ingredients and low alcohol-by-volume (ABV). Each recipe also includes a short text providing fascinating historial and cultrual information about the drink. Essays are interspersed throughout, with topics ranging from the history of the cocktail, the culture surrounding aperitivo beverages, among others. A comprehensive index by spirit and ingredient is located at the end of the volume.

Chapters include: "Refreshing" beverages, followed by "Sours," "Spirit Forward" drinks, "Tiki and Tropical" combinations, "Coffee and Dessert" beverages, and concluding with delightful "Punches."

From the author that brought you the drink-maker travel guide Where Bartenders Drink. Celebrate at home with Spirited!
