Synopses & Reviews
Delicious, glamorous, even slightly decadent -- cocktails are back in vogue. Whether you want to throw a great party or spice up an ordinary evening with a special drink, Cool Cocktails will provide all the inspiration you need. Ben Reed, London's hippest, hottest mixologist, offers a delicious range of recipes for almost 100 classic and contemporary cocktails (arranged by spirit), as well as practical advice on equipment and glasses. Why not start the evening with a classic aperitif -- a dry Martini, a sparkling Bellini, or an ice-cold Margarita? Or if you want to surprise your guests with something a little more adventurous, then mix up one of Ben's great original creations -- a Bramble, a Cranilla Martini, or a Purple Haze. With stunning photography by William Lingwood and Ben's wise and witty words, Cool Cocktails will have you reaching for the crushed ice and cocktail shaker on a regular basis.
