Synopses & Reviews
An illustrated collection of nearly 300 cocktail recipes from the award-winning NoMad Bar, with locations in New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.
Originally published as a separate book packaged inside The NoMad Cookbook, this revised and stand-alone edition of The NoMad Cocktail Book features more than 100 brand-new recipes (for a total of more than 300 recipes), a service manual explaining the art of drink-making according to the NoMad, and 30 new full-color cocktail illustrations (for a total of more than 80 color and black-and-white illustrations). Organized by type of beverage from aperitifs and classics to light, dark, and soft cocktails and syrups/infusions, this comprehensive guide shares the secrets of bar director Leo Robitschek's award-winning cocktail program. The NoMad Bar celebrates classically focused cocktails, while delving into new arenas such as festive, large-format drinks and a selection of reserve cocktails crafted with rare spirits.
"A riot of quirkiness and eccentricity, and the mood of the book, which shifts from droll humor to melancholy to gentle vulnerability, is unclassifiable — and just right." Kirkus
"Robitschek...once studied to become a doctor, and in his debut, he shows a surgeon's precision in crafting cocktails. Attention to detail and creative flourishes are the hallmarks of the more than 230 recipes culled here from the drinks Robitschek and his colleagues have created for the NoMad since its 2012 opening." Publishers Weekly
"A meticulous guide to inventive cocktails, with behind-the-scenes information on drink-making at the NoMad Bar." Library Journal
"This elegant saloon inside the NoMad hotel [is] teeming with lofty pub grub, digs worthy of 007...[and], with a mob-movie masculinity, is the most boisterous of the hotel's bunch, a dazzling anomaly of a pub." Time Out New York
