    Shots and Shooters 50 Recipes for a Quick Booze Hit
    ISBN: 9781909313422
    Publication date: 01/11/2014

    You have in your hands 50 recipes for the finest drinks you can down in one mouthful. In bars up and down the country there'll be someone forcing the rest of their party to endure the experience of a rancid shot of cheap tequila or attempt to keep down some cut-price concoction. We've all been there, and felt the effect the following morning, but shots (drinks made from only alcoholic ingredients and designed to be consumed in one) and shooters (drinks consisting of both spirit and non-alcoholic ingredients that can be downed in one) don't always have to be a punishment. With some good quality ingredients they can actually be something to enjoy rather than to make you retch. Shots and Shooters explains 50 different ways to down a small amount of - from elborate, eye-catching creations through to tasty combinations that can be mixed in seconds - ensuring your party gets started in the best way possible. There is also a section on classic shorts, examining the traditions and rituals associated with drinking neat spirits like absinthe, tequila and bourbon. Of course, it wouldn't be right to have all this pleasure without a bit of pain, so also included are a few cheeky recipes that can be used as forfeits for some of the unique and inventive drinking games also supplied in the last chapter.

    Speakeasy The Most Secret Bars in the World
    ISBN: 9781627951319
    Publication date: 01/11/2018

    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.

    Sample the country's most tantalizing tacos paired with equally inventive tequila-inspired cocktails-from seasoned food writer and libation enthusiast Katherine Cobbs. Tacos have been trending for years, and finally tequila is having its taco moment. While a crunchy, savory beef taco washed down with a frozen margarita is always acceptable, today the inspired options for what can be stuffed in an edible wrapper or blended with agave spirits are infinite. Behind the bar, the burgeoning array of top-shelf tequilas and mezcals available hold their own-and even outshine-liquor mainstays like vodka, gin, and bourbon. The ubiquitous tequila shot with requisite salt and lime chaser can't compete with the complex, nuanced flavors of the finely crafted blanco, reposado, and añejo tequilas and smoky mezcals that deserve sipping and savoring. Featuring authentic classics like Tacos Al Pastor and Baja-style fish tacos, Tequila & Tacos also includes entirely new spins on the taco-such as fried Brussels sprout tacos, spicy cauliflower tacos in Indian paratha shells, or tempura-battered seaweed tacos cradling ahi tuna-paired with uncannily delicious cocktails crafted with the finest agave spirits, like a traditional tart Paloma cocktail rimmed with spiced salt or an eye-opening Mezcal Manhattan. Curated from bars and taco stands around the country, this book is a must-have for the taco and tequila aficionado.

    It’s the perfect accompaniment to a Mexican meal full of spicy flavours, the ideal fuel for dancing the night away and the liquid embodiment of fun summer evenings with friends – oh, tequila, it will make you happy! In truth, aside from its roguish reputation, this spirit along with its trendy cousin mezcal is much more than a good-time shooter. Both are made from the fermented juice of the agave plant, and they have a complex yet light flavour, which is perfect in cocktails. Premium quality versions are becoming much more commonplace, especially for the discerning cocktail drinker – the simple rule is the higher the percentage of agave, the better. Learn more about the proud heritage of agave-based spirits from tequila and mezcal expert Jesse Estes. Start with a whole chapter on Margaritas from a Pink Pomegranate to a Greener Pastures. Next up try something Long & Refreshing such as a Hibiscus Highball or Mezcal Mule. If you prefer something a little more moody, try Brown, Bitter & Stirred with a Fallen Angel or a Mezcal Red Hook. In Short Drinks, Sours & Sangritas, brace yourself for an Almost Famous or a Tequila Smash. Finally, unleash your wild side in For the Adventurous with Rags to Riches or an Under the Volcano.
