Cocktail Codex

In Cocktail Codex, these experts reveal their surprisingly simple approach to mastering cocktails: the “root recipes,” six easily identifiable (and memorizable) templates that encompass all cocktails: the old-fashioned, martini, daiquiri, sidecar, whisky highball, and flip. By explaining the hows and whys of each “family,” Day, Fauchald, and Kaplan reveal why some cocktails work and others don’t, when to shake and when to stir, what can be omitted and substituted when missing ingredients, why people like the drinks they do, and how to invent entirely new cocktails.
