The celebrated Parisian bartender serves up rediscovered classics, plus historical information and techniques for creating them at home.
With more than sixty recipes that combine tradition and modernity, this book revisits the history of cocktails, from speakeasies to modern lounges, and the famous bartenders behind them. Organized into three sections—shaken cocktails, stirred cocktails, and punches—the recipes include garnish ideas, variations, and colorful notes about each drink’s creation.
Shaken Cocktails Shake these delicious concoctions into a new realm of delicious. Try your hand at worldwide favorites like a Black and Tan, Champs-Élysées Cocktail, Corpse Reviver (No.1 and No.2), Hemingway Special, Espresso Martini, Ramos Gin Fizz or Pisco Sour to name a few.
Stirred Cocktails: From simple to elegant and classic to modern, these cocktails only need a light touch. Enjoy everything from a Dry Martini and a Manhattan, to a Hanky Panky and a Green Point, to a Moscow Mule and an Old-Fashioned.
Punches: Get the most bang for your buck with these flavor-packed punches that are great for sharing. Creative mixtures like a Philadelphia Fish House Punch and The Green Beast to the seasonally themed Russian Spring Punch and Voiron Summer Punch, will have your guests clamoring for another pitcher.
