This post takes you to an updated older post about the historical and practical differences between orange liqueurs.
Books on vermouth, coffee cocktails, whiskey, batching, women's history, dessert cocktails, astrological mixology, two updated classics, two on bar management, and a book on tabletop distilling.
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.
The relationship between directional freezing and freeze distillation, and how the same concept can be used to explain a story from 1890 that clear ice from a lake is more healthy than the water from which it came.
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.
Tracing the facts and fiction about the history and origin of the Paloma, a cocktail made with tequila, lime, grapefruit soda, and a pinch of salt.
