The Spirits: A Guide to Modern Cocktailing

Of all the skills you might acquire in life, the ability to make a good cocktail will never be a waste of time. No lover will complain when you present them with a well-iced Negroni as they walk through your door; no house-guest will complain about a round of Gin Sours.

‘To cocktail’ was coined as a verb by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1928. This guide embodies that Golden Age spirit while giving it a thoroughly modern makeover. Expressly structured for the amateur, it will remind you just how much pleasure there is in cocktailing at home.

THE SPIRITS will be published on 24th September by Square Peg (Random House).
