Artisanal Updates: Created by the bar staff at Schiller's, these updated drinks are subtle variations on classic cocktails, with a focus on fresh ingredients and homemade syrups and infusions. Recipes include the Chai Fashioned, Mint Collins, Pear Jalapeno Margarita, Walnut Manhattan, White Chocolate Martini and more.
Seasonal Drinks: Offering the right drink for every occasion and every time of year, this book contains seasonal crowd-pleasing favorites like Hot Buttered Rum, Spiked Cider, Cranberry Toddy, Mojitos, Sangria, and holiday punches.
The Bartender's Handbook: A complete guide from bar basics to advanced techniques, this is the essential overview for mixing drinks at home. Tips on serving drinks in the right glass, stocking a home bar, recipes for small-batch syrups and infusions, and more are included.
With full-color photography throughout each 98-page book, this collection celebrates cocktails that are one part vintage combined with modern appeal.
