The Joy of the Cocktail : A Guide to Making Delicious Cocktails at Home
Cocktails should be easy. Cocktails should be fun. Most of all cocktails should taste great! This book brings together the perfect collection of cocktail recipes ranging from classic to modern, and along with the "tools, tips, and tricks" section provides all the knowledge needed to begin making delicious cocktails at home. The joy of the cocktail is not about the drink in and of itself but in the ritual that surrounds the creation and consumption of it. It is about enjoying something simple or something sublime with those that are close to you. It is relishing a moment of peace in the crazy fast paced world we all live in. It is much needed therapy after a stressful day or a well deserved celebration after a successful one. It is about connecting with those close to you or those that have drifted away. It is about strengthening old friendships and creating new ones. It is one of life's little pleasures that should not go unappreciated or unrealized. It is about spending time with those you love. It is about creating memories. The author and his wife firmly believe that life is meant to be lived and enjoyed every day. They have spent many wonderful times together, sampling cocktails all over the world, experiencing new cultures, eating incredible food, meeting interesting people, living life to its fullest. True happiness comes through experiences not things. This book is a collection of their favorite cocktails discovered, refined, and enjoyed over the years they've spent together. Some pay homage to a favorite restaurant or bar, others are their own creation. All invoke memories of a wonderful vacation, an amazing night out, or a quiet night in just enjoying one another's company. So use this book to begin your own journey toward fully appreciating life's little pleasures starting with the joy of the cocktail.
