Drinkology (Hardback)

James Waller


Drinkology is an elegantly packaged, entertainingly written, and easy-to-use guidebook for the budding bartender and the experienced mixologist alike. Contained herein are the techniques and secrets anyone needs to create classic cocktails and cutting-edge concoctions. Now, in this revised and updated edition of the popular 2003 book, author James Waller brings us even more of a good thing. Perfectly mixed cocktails deserve their reputation as the key element of any great party, and Waller has meticulously tested the recipes for 450 drinks, from such standards as the Gimlet and Gin and Tonic to nostalgic faves like the Singapore Sling and Pink Lady. Among the recipes added for this edition are the Bellini, the Pisco Sour, and the Dark and Stormy; the traditional Brazilian blended drinks called batidas; and many new Drinkology originals. The book also includes sections on frozen blender drinks, hot drinks, party punches, and nonalcoholic cocktails, as well as practical information on setting up a home bar and preparing for parties. Updated and expanded information on absinthe, beer, bitters, cachaca, Champagne, and gin is featured in the new edition, along with sections on infusing vodka and making your own limoncello and a chapter on sake. Designed to be used at the barA"-print-tabbed pages let the drinkmaker quickly find recipes, organized by liquor, while a waterproof cover protects it from spills. Its compact size and sewn binding allow it to lie flat, while a ribbon marker helps you flag your favorite cocktail. Fully indexed and with a glossary of bartending terms, Drinkology also features playful instructional art and illustrations by Glenn Wolff.
