The Curious Bartender Volume 1 - The Artistry & Alchemy
Preparing a first-class cocktail relies upon a deep understanding of its ingredients, the delicate alchemy of how they work together.
In The Curious Bartender, Tristan Stephenson explores and experiments with the art of mixing the perfect cocktail, explaining the fascinating modern turns mixology has taken. Showcasing a selection of classic cocktails, he explains their intriguing origins, introducing the colourful historical characters who inspired or created them.
Moving on, he reinvents each drink from his laboratory, adding contemporary twists to breathe fresh life into these vintage classics. Stay true to the originals with a Sazerac or a Rob Roy, or experiment with some of his modern variations to create a Green Fairy Sazerac topped with an absinthe 'air' or an Insta-age Rob Roy with the 'age' on the side.
Also included is a reference section detailing all the techniques you will need, making this an essential anthology for the cocktail enthusiast.
