Raising the Bar

An accessible guide to building a home bar one bottle at a time, this book gives readers tools for mixing fantastic cocktails without investing time and money in niche single-use ingredients.

There's a basic cocktail formula for building a bar that is anything but ordinary.

Spirit + Sugar + Acidity/Bitterness = Tasty Cocktail

Instead of drawing on esoteric bottles of liquor, complicated syrups, and obscure sodas, this book takes readers through the home bar bottle by bottle, ensuring that every ingredient is versatile enough to be used to the last drop.

Building on a very basic cocktail pantry, each chapter thoughtfully introduces a new bottle and explains how it opens new possibilities for cocktails. Each chapter builds on the one before, so readers never encounter recipes calling for unfamiliar spirits or ingredients. RAISING THE BAR allows readers to set their own pace and maximize the usefulness of the spirits they bring home.

This book will be a go-to reference for the home bartender that is practical enough for the day-to-day and special enough for a party. With handsome graphics and a smart focus on what's already in stock, it's what home mixologists can turn to when they want creative and delightful drinks without a bar cart full of single-use bottles.

Perfect for:
Those new to cocktail making looking for accessible, easy-to-mix cocktails
Cocktail and entertaining enthusiasts
Anyone wanting inspiration on how to set up a well-stocked bar at home
