About the Book...


Arts & crafts... with booze.


The Seasonal Cocktail Companion: 100 Recipes & Projects for 4 Seasons of Drinking provides a season by season toolkit for stocking your home bar, with everything from rhubarb bitters in springtime to hibiscus & spice-Infused tequila in the summer. Give your drinks personal character with booze infusions, seasonal garnishes, and inventive turns on classic cocktails.


The craft cocktail resurgence of the last decade has been a great boon for drinkers. But there's an air of mystery around the bar that doesn't exist in the kitchen, an air that makes people less confident that they can do it themselves. Most people may not be able to afford a $12 cocktail on a regular basis, but they can afford a $10 bottle of vodka, some lemons and a few tablespoons of spices. That's 12 drinks for the price of one. It's the "teach a man to fish" ideology.


The mission: to "help you find the flavors you like to go with the things you know." Full of fresh, flavorful ideas, recipes & color photographs, The Seasonal Cocktail Companion contains all that's needed to inspire random acts of cocktailing.
