Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The American Cocktail comes to us from the editors of Imbibe magazine, and it often combines the unpretentiousness of See Mix Drink, the swank adventurism of PDT, and the photographic beauty of Bitters. Subtitled 50 Recipes That Celebrate the Craft of Mixing Drinks From Coast to Coast, it gathers a "St. Louis Southside" and a "Boston Bog," a "Copper Fox Cooler" from Virginia and a "Pig on the Porch" from South Carolina. From Louisiana, it collects the "Comfortably Old-Fashioned," which uses Southern Comfort as its base. In its sweetness, this one's on the grandmotherly end of the old-fashioned spectrum, but it has its charms-provoking nostalgia for one's youth, for instance. Southern Comfort is, of course, a peachy whiskey-based liqueur especially popular among college students, who drink it in prelude to preposterous behavior centered on SEC football games, ACC basketball tournaments, and Ivy League sorority pledge nights.
-Slate Magazine

It's about time someone wrote a cocktail book that was geared towards both bartenders and serious cocktail aficionados and that home entertainers could relate to. Here you'll find fifty recipes that bartenders across the country have contributed -- classic cocktails and modern twists on drinks your grandparents probably once enjoyed. Along with the recipes, there's a small peek into the history behind each.

-Epicurious

Featured in the book The American Cocktail: 50 Recipes That Celebrate the Craft of Mixing Drinks From Coast to Coast by the editors of Imbibe Magazine, the Kelso daiquiri is described as "a perfectly charming Southern twist on a classic beach cocktail." It's the creation of Josh Habiger, owner of The Patterson House in Nashville. Habiger invented the Kelso daiquiri as a way to bring the traditionally tropical daiquiri to the whiskey-drinking South. An exotic cocktail without the exotic destination, this tasty treat is perfect for those breezy fall evenings spent on the patio at home or when you just need a quick getaway from life. Lucky for you, airfare rates do not apply.
