    Boozy Slushies Poptails and Ice Pops
    ISBN: 9781849759663
    Publication date: 01/10/2018

    Kickstart a summer of fun with this collection of over 25 recipes for deliciously refreshing frozen cocktails. Happy hour is never far away with an ice box stocked full of these spiked icy treats.

    Nothing is so satisfying as a chilled fruity ice pop, grabbed and shared round languorously from the icebox on a boiling hot day. The instant cooling gratification that comes with every lick is a simple yet wonderful nostalgic pleasure. Equally as nostalgic are the neon-bright slushies of youth—and the brain-freeze and blue tongue that often came with them. These juvenile treats have clearly not lost their appeal amongst fun-loving adults, and recent trends have seen bartenders and chefs transform these childish ices into something far more sophisticated with a healthy measure of alcohol. It started with the simple frosé (frozen rose) and now even more elaborate poptails and layered ice pops are appearing on every menu du jour. Made with real fruits, juices and alcohol, essentially your favorite cocktails and alcoholic drinks are frozen into the most luxurious of ice pops or slushies. It is remarkably easy to make these tipsy treats at home, and in this book the queen of desserts, Hannah Miles shows you how.

    Bourbon The Rise Fall and Rebirth of An American Whiskey
    ISBN: 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.

    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.

    From the authors of the best-selling and genre-defining cocktail book Death & Co, Cocktail Codex is a comprehensive primer on the craft of mixing drinks that employs the authors' unique "root cocktails" approach to give drink-makers of every level the tools to understand, execute, and improvise both classic and original cocktails.

    "There are only six cocktails." So say Alex Day, Nick Fauchald, and David Kaplan, the visionaries behind the seminal craft cocktail bar Death & Co. In Cocktail Codex, these experts reveal for the first time their surprisingly simple approach to mastering cocktails: the "root recipes," six easily identifiable (and memorizable!) templates that encompass all cocktails: the old-fashioned, martini, daiquiri, sidecar, whisky highball, and flip. Once you understand the hows and whys of each "family," you'll understand why some cocktails work and others don't, when to shake and when to stir, what you can omit and what you can substitute when you're missing ingredients, why you like the drinks you do, and what sorts of drinks you should turn to--or invent--if you want to try something new.
