Drinks featured range from renowned iconic classics to lesser-known regional specialties and influential bespoke drinks – each reflecting the era, location, or bar that inspired them. In Spirited you will also learn how to expertly set up your home bar, with practical advice on bar tools, glassware, syrups, garnishes, and so much more. Specially commissioned photography captures the glamor, elegance, and fun of the hundreds of drinks included.
This handsome companion to every home bar is packed with personality – each easy-to-follow recipe also provides fascinating historical and cultural information about the drink and its origins. With Spirited you get to know so much more than just how to make the drink itself.
Recipes are organized by cocktail style, with notes on country of origin and era of invention, together with infographic icons that showcase ingredients and identify low alcohol-by-volume (ABV) drinks. Essays are interspersed throughout the more than 430 pages of this beautifully-designed book, with topics ranging from the history of the cocktail, the culture surrounding aperitivo beverages, and more.
Spirited, this most useful of guides, concludes with comprehensive indexes by name, spirit, and ingredient, ensuring that it will be the book that you will reach for again and again whenever you want to relax, entertain, or celebrate.
