Description
Mixing your own drinks is not nearly as mysterious as it seems, once you know how the elements work together and what your options are, which is where this guide from the editors of DrinkoftheWeek.com excels. Using a simple system of ratios, the authors reveal the basic structure of a wide range of drinks; 2 or 4 parts strong spirit (gin) to 1 part aromatic sour (vermouth) both yield a fine Martini, for example, while the same ratios also work for a Manhattan, Rob Roy, or Gibson. Other ratios include 3 parts strong to 2 parts sweet to 1 part sour (Margarita, Sidecar, Cosmopolitan) and 1 part strong to 1 part sweet to 2 parts mild (White Russian, Brandy Alexander, Grasshopper). Then they start tossing out suggestions for trying it your own way—even making your own infused spirits, syrups, and bitters—and offer tips, tricks, and remedial advice throughout, illustrated with tempting color photos.
