Food & Wine Cocktails 2008by Kate Krader (Editor), Jim Meehan (Editor)
As a scene-scoping, style-setting, modern magazine, Food & Wine always keeps tabs on the trendiest nightlife. These 150 cocktails are the ones making a sensation in the hippest eateries and bars throughout the nation, the drinks bartenders get asked for again and again. And mix-masters won’t find better recipes for traditional favorites. Each chapter focuses on a particular spirit type, and every page highlights one or two special cocktails, along with a description of the establishment that provided the recipe and behind-the-scenes anecdotes. A “Cocktail Clinic” offers tips on stocking the bar with essential glassware and tools, as well as a list of the country’s best resources for bar staples, and an index in the back has the names, addresses and phone numbers of the top clubs showcased. That adds up to a comprehensive nightlife guide to major cities nationwide. Plus, there’s lots of exciting new material, including a whole chapter on the finest, most classic cocktails; a directory of the best liquor stores in the country, so readers can source all the ingredients for these amazing drinks; an expanded spirits lexicon; and even more delicious bar food recipes!
