Overview

This collection features 100 eco-friendly, organic cocktails from the trendiest bars and nightclubs across the country, along with a few new creations by the author. Enjoy the Voluptuous (culled from the Grand Pu Bah restaurant in San Francisco), organic strawberry muddled with organic gin, agave nectar, organic egg white, and a splash of absinthe. The Lunacy (from the Royalton in New York City) gets two green thumbs up for its mixture of organic blackberries, lemon juice, organic simple syrup, organic reposado tequila, Lillet Blanc, and açai spirit. And then there’s the sublime yet simple Au Provence (from Eastern Standard in Boston), made with tarragon-infused organic simple syrup, organic vodka, and lime juice.
In addition to the drink recipes, there’s also a thorough introduction to today’s producers of organic vodka, gin, tequila, and other spirits—a new generation of small-scale producers who believe in sustainable agriculture, traditional methods, and environmentally sound practices.  Learn how to set up a green bar, with tips on ingredients, techniques, and equipment. Gorgeous color photos throughout demonstrate the diversity and deliciousness of these eco-friendly cocktails.
