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...
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.
For a quick post on Details.com I wrote about two new travel cocktail kits. The first one is above. The second one is the Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit: Read about them both here. Happy trails!
Each year for Details.com I write a gift guide of spirits to consider for holiday gifting or just winter drinking. This year's list includes 11 spirits and 1 book, nearly all of which came out in the later half of the year.
