Product description

Already responsible for giving jelly a 21st-century makeover, the boys at Bompas & Parr now focus their attention on the perennially popular cocktail. But of course with an extra special twist. In this fantastic new book, Sam and Harry take us on a rollercoaster journey through the wonderful world of fizzes, smashes, juleps, shrubs and fixes. Classics, new kids on the block and crazy concoctions are all to be expected, but the boys also provide advice on the all-important presentation, the ingredients - getting the ice just right - and of course how to host a show-stopping event. Veterans of successful alcoholic adventures such as Alcoholic Architecture (a walk in cloud of breathable G&T) and the Architectural Punchbowl (a Robert Adam building flooded with 4 tonnes of Courvoisier Punch - enough for 25,000 people!), Bompas & Parr are perfectly placed to ensure you create a cocktail night to remember. The book includes historical facts surrounding cocktails, the universal cocktail principle, bar snacks and advice on basic equipment. Sam and Harry's paramount aim is to demystify cocktails and help you make your own drinks from whatever there is to hand.
