Long gone are the days when there were only a few drink books out each year; now it's a few every month. Below I've listed the drink books coming out mostly in in September and the beginning of October 2019. There will be another round-up around Thanksgiving most likely, as...
Then new drink books (okay one of them is a card game) released from May through August before the fall book onslaught!
15 new cocktails and drink books on everything from distilling to mead to drinks to accompany music and travel to favorite bars to rules for drinking.
Behold! Here is my round-up of all the cocktails and spirits books (plus a few others) that were released in 2017. This year, beyond the annual deluge of whisky books, there are books aping the bartender lifestyle (Drink Like a Bartender, Straight Up), more narrative books (I Hear She's a Real Bitch, By the Smoke and the Smell), and recipe books seeking to simplify the process (3 Ingredient Cocktails, The Imbible, Road Soda) rather than reveal the secrets of complex drinks from top bars. All in all, another great year for reading about drinking.
Ten new drink books covering bourbon, aquavit, global booze and global bars, plus recipes for prosecco and Instagrammable cocktails.
