Today's diners and drinkers are seeing a bold new integration of culinary art and cocktail culture. "Market-Fresh Mixology" shows how fabulous additions from the farmer's market, garden, or pantry can elevate classic cocktails to the next level. It introduces an entirely new dimension to the ideal of seasonal cocktails, with a clean, contemporary approach that uses fine spirits and fresh ingredients to create cocktails for every occasion. Hot day? Blustery night? Snowbound? No matter what the weather, season, or event, "Market-Fresh Mixology" offers a recipe, from the refreshing summer mojito to the cozy hot buttered rum, that's as easy to follow as it is delicious. With its gorgeous full color photos, the book is a treat for the eyes, but it's also eminently practical, with tips on cocktail mixing techniques, garnishes, enhancements, glassware, and bar tools, as well as amusing lore surrounding classic cocktails.
