Drink Me
Curious Cocktails from Wonderland
Hardcover      ISBN: 1631065122
Great adventures often start with a drink--including Alice's expedition down the rabbit hole, which began with a sip of a curiously labelled tipple. Drink Me invites you to do the same; learn how to mix 20 cocktails that will fill you with wonder and childish glee at the surreal flavor combinations, while amassing the perfect selection of drinks for your own spirit-soaked Mad Hatter's tea party.

We have delved into the depths of the Pool of Tears in search of the most magical ingredients and sumptuous flavors, and after some sage advice from a helpful caterpillar, have compiled a list of recipes that would be regularly enjoyed by the inhabitants of Wonderland.

Drink Me includes concoctions for every palate and occasion, no matter your drinking predilection. Perfect pre-dinner aperitifs are in abundance, including The Queen of Hearts, a sweet, refreshing drink with bitter undertones, and Painting The Roses Red, a bubbly highball of sharp raspberry and gin flavors, softened with a hint of rose water.

We explore the hallucinogenic properties of Absinthe in our ode to the unknown, The Mushroom, a strong mix of aniseed, rose, and complex herbal flavors, while we reminisce over the taste of our childhood with drinks such as Bread and Butterfly Pudding and the Unbirthday Cake Martini. The Duchesses Soup is a refined take on the punch bowl, while we make a refreshing palate cleanser in the form of The Caucus Chaser, a sticky plum and chestnut sharpener low enough in alcohol that you can greedily gulp it without even a hint of regret.

Drink Me includes everything you need to know for throwing your own Alice in Wonderland-themed cocktail party, including cocktail party advice and techniques for mixing and decorating your drinks.

Put on your Cheshire grin and get ready to head down the rabbit hole with your copy of Drink Me in hand.
Amaro: The Spirited World of Bittersweet, Herbal Liqueurs, with Cocktails, Recipes, and Formulas
Amaro
The Spirited World of Bittersweet, Herbal Liqueurs, with Cocktails, Recipes, and Formulas
1st Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 1607747480
Featuring more than 100 recipes, Amaro is the first book to demystify the ever-expanding, bittersweet world, and is a must-have for any home cocktail enthusiast or industry professional.

The European tradition of making bittersweet liqueurs--called amari in Italian--has been around for centuries. But it is only recently that these herbaceous digestifs have moved from the dusty back bar to center stage in the United States, and become a key ingredient on cocktail lists in the country's best bars and restaurants. Lucky for us, today there is a dizzying range of amaro available--from familiar favorites like Averna and Fernet-Branca, to the growing category of regional, American-made amaro.

Starting with a rip-roaring tour of bars, caf s, and distilleries in Italy, amaro's spiritual home, Brad Thomas Parsons--author of the James Beard and IACP Award-winner Bitters--will open your eyes to the rich history and vibrant culture of amaro today. With more than 100 recipes for amaro-centric cocktails, DIY amaro, and even amaro-spiked desserts, you'll be living (and drinking) la dolce vita.

Culinary Cocktails
Hardcover      ISBN: 0062391283

Create your own artisanal farm-to-glass specialty cocktails using local, seasonal, unusual, and organic produce with this illustrated bartending guide from the renowned cocktail chef who is transforming modern mixology.

Matthew Biancaniello, the former cocktail chef for the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel's famous Library Bar, is creating cocktails the world has never tasted before. Going beyond the quotidian Whiskey Sour or Tom Collins, Biancaniello is mixing it up with imaginative drinks such as "The Heirloom Tomato Mojito", a twenty-five-year-aged balsamic vinegar and strawberry libation named "The Last Tango in Modena," and a fresh arugula-infused "Roquette."

One of the fastest-rising and most unique talents in the world of bartending, Biancaniello crafts exciting new drinks based on farm-fresh, seasonal, organic ingredients. A complement to farm-to-table dining, his fresh take on cocktails is ushering in a new age of drinking: "farm-to-glass", and with the addition of his foraging and gardening methods, "ground to glass." Captured in gorgeous full-color photographs, the libations in Eat Your Drink are both aesthetically beautiful and delicious.

Eat Your Drink explores cocktails that push boundaries though never-before-imagined flavor combinations. Following Biancaniello's lead, you too can learn to blend alcohol and food together to create an elevated cocktail experience that requires you to savor, explore and . . . eat your drink.

Pure Heart: A Spirited Tale of Grace, Grit, and Whiskey
Pure Heart
A Spirited Tale of Grace, Grit, and Whiskey
Hardcover      ISBN: 0062458973

Finalist for a 2018 Southern Book Prize for Biography and History

Troylyn Ball and her husband, Charlie, an engineer and real estate developer, had spent their entire lives in Texas. But after a near fatal trip to the emergency room with their non-verbal, wheelchair-bound son Marshall, they admitted the dust and the heat were too dangerous. To save their boys, the Balls cashed out, sold their beloved farm, and moved to Asheville, North Carolina.

Nearing fifty, Troy thought her chance at adventure had passed. But in this booming little Appalachian Mountain city of hippies, farmers, artisans, and retirees, she unexpectedly discovered a support network and something she'd never had in twenty-five years of providing round-the-clock care for her special needs boys: the freedom to pursue her own dreams. She struck up a friendship with a legendary eighty-year-old raconteur from the mountains, met his friends, and soon found herself in a rickety country shack with an ingeniously inventive retired farmer trying to create the best recipe ever for traditional mountain moonshine.

But when the real estate bubble burst and the collapse of her husband Charlie's new venture in Asheville left them deeply in debt, Troy realized her ten-year business plan for Troy & Sons Platinum Whiskey wasn't enough. If she was going to save her family--and she was definitely going to save her family--she needed to become the most successful woman in the legal whiskey business. And she needed to do it fast, before the bank took her house, her business, and everything she'd worked so hard to achieve.

Full of eccentric characters and charming locations--from a "haunted" cabin in the mountains to the last farm in the world to grow heritage Crooked Creek corn--Pure Heart is a charming story of a woman who set out to find a purpose in the most unexpected of places, and ended up finding happiness, contentment, and a community of love and respect.

The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook
The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook
Hardcover      ISBN: 0813125790

Once thought to be only the tipple of southern gentlemen and the companion of confederate roughnecks, bourbon has gained a steady resurgence in popularity over the years with an ever-expanding and diverse audience. A beverage distilled almost exclusively in Kentucky, bourbon has attained prominence and appreciation for its complexity, history, and tradition. In The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook, Albert Schmid provides readers with the best recipes using the famous spirit of the Bluegrass. From classic Kentucky cocktails such as the Mint Julep, to bourbon inspired desserts, such as Bourbon-Pecan Crème Brulée with Chocolate Sauce, and more savory fare, such as Steaks with Bourbon Ginger Sauce, this book supplies recipes for every course. Schmid uses the four distinct seasons of the Bluegrass State to guide the reader through this rich collection of bourbon dishes and color photographs. In many ways a lesson on the flavor profiles that pair with and improve the flavor of bourbon, this book can be used by the home cook and the professional chef alike for inspiration to create new dishes. Much more than just a cookbook, The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook recounts bourbon lore, food traditions, and Kentucky history, giving the reader a full appreciation of America's native spirit.
