  • Whiskey A Spirited Story with 75 Classic and Original Cocktails
    Whiskey A Spirited Story with 75 Classic and Original Cocktails
    ISBN: 9781581573251
    Publication date: 01/10/2016

    After decades of being seen as an old man's drink, whiskey is booming in popularity. Craft distilleries are popping up all over the United States, making whiskeys not just from corn, rye and malted barley, but also from grains such as quinoa, blue corn and triticale. Cocktail lovers, moving away from sweet and fruity flavour profiles, have embraced the earthy, bitter, savory notes that come from the "brown" spirits. In this collection, Shrubs author Michael Dietsch reaches out to those cocktail drinkers with recipes both classic and original, in historical order. He begins with colonial-era drinks such as Cherry Bounce and the Stone Fence, moving to early whiskey drinks like the Toddy and Julep, and then into the cocktail explosion of the Jerry Thomas era circa 1880s. This leads to the drinks of pre-Prohibition, Prohibition and post-Repeal, and then to a section on the cocktail renaissance of the last 15 years. Author Michael Dietsch writes, "Whiskey is a spirit with a story," and he includes an overview and some history without losing sight of the pleasures in drinking the stuff. His cocktail recipes are also infused with stories, making this book a joy to both read and use.

    Award-winning cocktail-maker and gardener Lottie Muir brings you another selection of wonderfully wild and flavorful concoctions from her pop-up bar, The Midnight Apothecary. For this new repertoire of drinks, Lottie set herself a threefold challenge: to achieve the same amount of pleasure and balance that refined sugar provides in the taste and mouth-feel of a cocktail, to create new aromatic and bitter-forward drinks, and to make delicious new mocktails for those who want to consume no, or less, alcohol.

    Lottie has created delicious infusions, cordials, sodas, shrubs, bitters, teas, and tonics that can be mixed alcohol free as mocktails—try out the Cherry Blossom and Flowering Currant Cordial, the Thyme and Licorice Syrup, or the Iced Spring Tonic Tea—or added to your favorite spirits to create a magical take on old-time classics, such as the Wild Negroni or the Windfall Punch.
