Product description

From the U.K.'s preeminent bartender and one of the leading authorities on "modernist mixology" comes this collection of 60 revolutionary cocktails, all grounded in the classics but utilizing technologies and techniques from the molecular gastronomy movement. The right cocktail is more than just a drink. It's the perfect combination of scent, color, sound, and taste. Utilizing a broad spectrum of influences--including gastronomy, perfumery, music, art, and design--Tony Conigliaro has established himself as one of the most innovative and thought-provoking mixologists in the world. In "The Cocktail Lab, " Tony presents his best and boldest creations: drinks like the Vintage Manhattan, Dirty Martini by the Sea, and Cosmo Popcorn. These recipes will not only redefine your understanding of what a cocktail can be; they will also inspire you to become a more confident and creative drink maker.

Review quote

"Tony Conigliaro is a revolutionary...He pushes the rules of classic cocktail-making beyond expectation." --Heston Blumenthal "The Cocktail Lab is years ahead of its time. Tony uses flavors and aromas that engage all of the senses--and as a result, drinks like the Chamomile Cooler (a Scotch Sour with chamomile foam) are both revelatory and charmingly familiar." --Dale DeGroff, author of "The Craft of the Cocktail " "Tony Conigliaro has elevated the respected craft of mixing drink to an art form . . . It's an absolute honor to take a peek inside this artist's head." --Gary Regan, author of "The Joy of Mixology" "Tony has made some of the best, most elegant drinks I've ever had, and now he's gone and written one of the best, most elegant books on the subject." --David Wondrich, author of "Imbibe!"
