Shaken Not Stirred® celebrates the Martini—the quintessential cocktail, the crowning jewel of civilized decadence. Historians and mixologists Anistatia Miller and Jared Brown revise their lists of classic Martini recipes and update their roster of modern Martinis— from the Espresso Martini to the Fresh Fruit Martini, from Cosmos to MarTEAnis—to suit current taste. They also provide eye-opening, never-before-published discoveries in their history of the cocktail in both America and Europe.
Over the past fifteen years the way people think about and drink cocktails, especially Martinis, has been radically transformed. In this new edition, readers can hone their bar skills with tips from some of the world's finest mixologists. They can learn how to stock a topshelf home bar as well as make infusions and special garnishes. Partyplanning advice, fun bits of trivia, a few jokes and anecdotes, plus a directory of the world's best cocktail bars, are the finishing garnish on this modern cocktail classic!
