Big Book of Cocktails: Mixers, Shakers, Shots - The Complete Bartender's Guide

Author(s): Brian Lucas


This book presents delicious recipes for every day, every mood and every occasion - with expert advice on how to serve the perfect drink. "The Big Book of Cocktails" presents all the information you need to become the ultimate cocktail maker and connoisseur. A fact-packed introduction not only provides an overview of cocktail-making past and present, but also brims with practical information - from glass types to the right way to shake, mix and "muddle". Indulge in the 365 cocktail recipes, organised by base ingredient - with chapters on gin, rum, vodka, brandy, whisky, other spirits, fruit and champagne. There is a chapter on non-alcoholic cocktails, too. Every alcoholic recipe is given an at-a-glance symbolic rating of alcohol content, and a symbol indicating the perfect shape of glass for serving, making this the essential party companion. Interspersed through the book are 25 "Cocktail Classics" - special features on famous cocktails, from Bloody Mary to Tequila Sunrise.
