Reading – 3-Ingredient Cocktails: An Opinionated Guide to the Most Enduring Drinks in the Cocktail Canon by Robert Simonson – 4 in a series

January 16th, 2018

I’ll be highlighting books that I am reading (or re-reading) on all sorts of topics this year — Douglas

Reading - 3-Ingredient Cocktails: An Opinionated Guide to the Most Enduring Drinks in the Cocktail Canon by 	Robert Simonson - 4 in a series

This has to be the yummiest book I have read in a long time. I have never been someone to keep a fully stocked bar, but with this book, it isn’t required. With a bit of whiskey, some Italian Amaro and a variety of sweeteners, I was on my way to a wonderful new world of cocktails.I found myself sampling regularly as I worked my way through both classic and modern, reinvigorated, versions as well as learning much more than I ever knew about the world of cocktails. The Old-Fashioned has caught my eye recently as I always had ingredients on hand and wanted a way of dressing up my everyday whiskey selections. 3-Ingredient Cocktails took me far beyond that, though and gave me a through — and tasty — education.

I could see using this book as the basis for a great party. Each guest brings the spirit or ingredient of their choice, you provide glassware, bar tools, and ice and let the fun commence. Hmm, some of my friends should be expecting an invite any day now. (LAUGH)

Highly Recommended
