The Martini Book: 201 Ways to Mix the Perfect American Cocktail Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Martini Book includes dozens of delicious new recipes and even more useful information on creating flawless versions of our most popular and enduring cocktail.

It's classic, sublime, and America's favorite indulgence-- the martini. As the symbol for sophistication and "cool," it stands alone. The traditional "dry martini," made with gin and a hint of vermouth, may be the starting point but The Martini Book takes it to the next level, offering hundreds of modern twists in addition to the tried and true original.

Make no mistake, the classic versions of the drink are here, complete with tips for making them perfectly every time. But for those who are more adventurous or looking to expand their drink repertoire, new recipes include the Flirtini, the GreenTeani, the Frosty Mango Martini, the Ginger Snap Martini, and many, many more. There is also practical information on stirring and shaking, a list of essential bar tools (including glassware), and a list of must-have ingredients for any home bar. The beautiful full-color photographs provide inspiration and a guide to making drinks that are as beautiful as they are satisfying.

Synopsis:

Indulge in the ultimate drink—the martini. It's the chilled glass, the cold gin, the slightest touch of vermouth, and the salty olive working together to create the most sophisticated of drinks. Whether you prefer the classic martini or a new twist on the drink, the martini remains to this day the epitome of "cool." In this revised and updated edition of The Martini Book, there are more than 200 martini recipes for every flavor imaginable. Whether it's dry or sweet, fruity or spicy, there's something here for every mood. You'll also find information on how to set up your martini bar, plus a list of all the ingredients you'll need, and some indispensable tips on how to shake (or stir) this delicious drink. Try the classics and the new "twists."
