    Publication date: 01/08/2018

    The recent rise of rosé as THE summer drink started with the arrival of ‘frosé’ (a cheeky concoction of fruity frozen rosé blended with strawberry syrup and served slushie-style) but bartenders worldwide are now turning their attention to the pink stuff (in all it’s styles from dry and crisp to ripe and sweet) and using it as the base for more complex, sophisticated drinks. Some are subtly spiked with vodka, gin, whisky or tequila, others are sweetened with sticky fruit-based liqueurs such as Cointreau and cassis, some are sharpened up with tangy citrus juices like pink grapefruit and lime, a few are pinned with the herby note of rosemary and basil-infused syrups or accented with delicate floral cordials, such as elderflower and rose. Rosé also works beautifully in a fruit-filled summer punch, served in large bowls or pitchers and packed with juicy orchard and berry fruits. Here you’ll find recipes for all styles of recipe from short to long, flat to sparkling, tart to sweet and fun to fancy. Choose an elegant sparkling aperitif such as a Pom Pom or a Blackberry Bellini; a sophisticated sipper like the Rosy Glow or Pink Gimlet; a long refresher like a minty Rojito or Spanish Copa de Frutas; or an tooth-tingling icy treat such as a Twisted Frosé or Raspberry and Rosé Caipirinha; or why not share the good news with friends and fill a bowl with Just Peachy Punch or serve up a pitcher of Bourbon and Blue Iced Tea.

    Hidden entrances, dark places, low volume music, smoke, women, crime and obviously alcohol. In the days of Prohibition (1920-1933), these were the explosive ingredients of the American speakeasies: clubs that served alcohol illegally, when the government prohibited even its production and transport. They were frequented by gangster such as Al Capone and Lucky Luciano and have become the symbol of an epoch immortalized by many movies.

    The "new" speakeasies are inspired to the typical unmistakable atmosphere of the beginning of the XX century, when it was necessary to speak under your breath not to arise the suspects of the law. These trendy bars have often been conceived by keen bartenders, who rediscovered the tastes of the mixed drinking of the `20s and `30s. Specially-made furniture, refined cocktails, entrance by invitation only, themed dress code, locations without address, vintage atmosphere... nowadays the speakeasy is living a second life, a renaissance that is, first of all, a matter of taste. Cocktails are now high-quality, sophisticated and above all legal, but entering these clubs we jump into the past. This book will lead you to the discovery of the most famous current speakeasies, opening you the doors of a hidden but charming world.
