How To Use The Book
It was designed to facilitate discovery and make it easy for you to find your new favourite cocktail. You’ll see the recipes are divided into six chapters: Refreshing, Sours, Spirit Forward, Tiki & Tropical, Coffee & Dessert and Punch. Within each chapter, drinks are grouped together like with like. For example, following the classic Whiskey Sour recipe on page 148, you’ll find more than a dozen variations, like the Rattlesnake, created at London’s Savoy Hotel, on page 152.
With more than 600 recipes, I’m sure you’ll be able to find a drink to suit your palate and mood any day of the year. I hope you enjoy exploring this wonderful world of cocktails as much as I have.
May your glass be ever full,
Author of Spirited: Cocktails from Around the World
