The Cocktail Workshop
Whether you can already launch a flotilla of Mai Tais with your eyes closed or don't know the difference between tequila and mezcal, get ready to deepen your knowledge and up your cocktail game.
Inside you'll find the history and recipes for 20 classic cocktails, from the Mint Julep to the Margarita, along with Riffs (to make the drinks your own) and a Workshop (to really up the ante) - a liquid curriculum meant to nail what makes an iconic cocktail and explore how to change it up through unusual ingredients, varied techniques, and at-home projects (like flaming garnishes and DIY bitters) that will lift your home mixology to a rarefied level.
You can begin at the beginning with the Martini and Negroni or cannonball into the deep end of fat-washed whiskies, fresh-fruit shrubs, and postmodern slushies. As the name implies, The Cocktail Workshop is about learning, tinkering with, and mastering a craft-the craft of mixing cocktails.
