Strong, Sweet and Bitter
Drawing upon her expertise as cocktail bar Bomba’s manager, Devine explores the different ingredients and techniques required to craft anything from classic cocktails to their lesser-known but equally delicious counterparts. Anyone from those who haven’t ever made a cocktail before to the most experienced of bartenders can start off by learning to make a base from scratch (or finding out which to pick from the store), what equipment is required to make cocktails, which ingredients marry well together, the science behind cocktails and how certain cocktails came to be throughout history to craft the perfect drink. The book then splits into types of cocktails, rather than spirit, to match your mood and introduce you to drinks based on your preference.
Looking for something short and boozy? Or craving something citrus-y and fresh? You might just discover a cocktail you like using a spirit you never thought you’d enjoy all based on your mood or preference. The book also explores how to be a great host and contains breakout boxes filled with little facts and tidbits for hosts to share with their guests.
This is the ideal, most comprehensive foray into cocktail making for anyone looking to learn the ins and outs of being behind the bar.
