Shaken: 250 Classic Cocktails with a Twist Cover

 

Staff Pick

This dazzling edition is the perfect antidote to the grey February blahs one must slog through on the way to spring. Turn page after page of heady cocktails and eagerly anticipate balmy evenings and pitcher drinks on the porch. Brilliant photos of the drinks themselves are interspersed with displays of classic and retro glassware and bar accessories. Besides the tried-and-true sours, spritzers, and highballs, discover new variations on the margarita, martini, and bellini, and why not a little blue curiosity called "Shampoo"?

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cocktails are glamorous, sexy, and cosmopolitan. They evoke a suave but fun sophistication that contributes to fabulous parties and unforgettable smaller gatherings. Now in Shaken, the cool urbanity of the cocktail is stunningly matched by a bold, dramatic design and full-color, original photography. Organized into themed chapters for every type of mood or event, the cocktails require only a few basic implements and ingredients, a steady hand, and a highly developed sense of fun.

More than 200 recipes for coladas, shooters, fizzes, martinis, daiquiris, and every other kind of mixed drink are simple to follow and sure to impress, and there is even an introductory chapter on selecting the proper glasses and garnishes. With glittering, colorful flare, Shaken adds excitement to every party.

Synopsis:

From their rustic beginnings masking fiery bootleg hootch, cocktails are now on the cusp of a golden age. Distillers are infusing classic spirits such as gin, vodka, and tequila with exciting new flavors, promising infinite possibilities for those seeking the latest liquid sensation. Despite their glamorous appearance, cocktails are surprisingly easy to mix up. With a little practice, a few basic tools and ingredients, and a well-developed sense of fun, even the most novice bartender wannabe can host swanky soirees using these intoxicating drinks. Recipes include Classic Martini, Orange Jelly Shot, Rusty Nail, Old-Fashioned, Passion Fruit and Vodka Jelly Shot, and Mojito.
