- 101 ShotsISBN: 9781118456736
Publication date: 01/04/2016
Forget what you think you know about shots from your college years. In 101 Shots, cocktail aficionado Kim Haasarud elevates the lowly shot to heights never seen before in this collection of recipes just as she's done with her other books including 101 Martinis and 101 Margaritas. For example, the Peach Fuzz Shooter, the Mini Bananas Foster, and the Archangel are made with fresh fruit purees. There are more traditional recipes as well, such as the Belfast Bomber made with Baileys and Irish whiskey dropped into a glass of Guinness, not to mention spicy offerings like the Yellow Sun Sangrita made with smoked paprika and Tabasco, and even savoury ones like the Caprese Shooter made with tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper - and vodka, of course. What's perhaps best about shot recipes is that there is almost no occasion when they're not fun to serve and enjoy, from the Johnny Appleseed, a perfect drink for fall made with fresh cider, to the Red, White, and Blue, a layered concoction ideal for Independence Day parties. With gelee shot recipes, too, this may be the last party cocktail book you'll ever need.

- Bourbon The Rise Fall and Rebirth of An American WhiskeyISBN: 9780760351727
Publication date: 01/10/2016
Once and for all, America learns the likely inventor of its beloved bourbon. Bourbon is not just alcohol -- this amber-colored drink is deeply ingrained in American culture and tangled in American history. From the early days of raw corn liquor to the myriad distilleries that have proliferated around the country today, bourbon has come to symbolize America. In Bourbon: The Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of an American Whiskey, award-winning whiskey author Fred Minnick traces bourbon's entire history, from the 1700s with Irish, Scottish, and French settlers setting up stills and making distilled spirits in the New World through today's booming resurgence. He also lays out in expert detail the critical role this spirit has played throughout the cultural and even political history of the nation - from Congress passing whiskey-protection laws to consumers standing in long lines just for a glimpse of a rare bottle of Pappy Van Winkle -- complemented by more than 100 illustrations and photos. And most importantly, Minnick explores the mystery of who most likely created the sweet corn liquor we now know as bourbon. He studies the men who've been championed as its inventors over time -- from Daniel Boone's cousin to Baptist minister Elijah Craig - and, based on new research and never-before-seen documentation, answers the question of who deserves the credit.

- But First Champagne A Modern Guide to the Worlds Favourite WineISBN: 9781510711440
Publication date: 01/10/2016
Both the region of Champagne and its wines have always been associated with prestige and luxury. Knowledgeable wine enthusiasts have long discussed top Champagnes with the same reverence they reserve for the finest wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But everyday Americans usually keep Champagne way back on the high shelf. It's for big celebrations, send-offs, and wedding toasts and, more often than not, is bought by the case. The good stuff costs plenty--and frankly, rarely seems worth the price. Today, though, Champagne is in the midst of a renaissance--no longer to be unjustly neglected. Over the past decade, an increasing number of wine enthusiasts have discovered the joys of grower Champagne--wines made by the farmers who grow the grapes. Thanks to a few key wine importers and America's newfound obsession with knowing where food comes from, these shipments have been climbing steadily. In But First, Champagne, author David White details Champagne's history along with that of its wines, explains how and why the market is changing, and profiles the region's leading producers. This book is essential reading for wine enthusiasts, adventurous drinkers, foodies, sommeliers, and drinks professionals. With a comprehensive yet accessible overview of the region, its history, and its leading producers, But First, Champagne will demystify Champagne for all. Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Good Books and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of cookbooks, including books on juicing, grilling, baking, frying, home brewing and winemaking, slow cookers, and cast iron cooking.
