Kit will present and sign copies. And, there will be some refreshing sips too. Since it's a Friday afternoon, we're starting a half hour earlier than our usual time. No place does celebrations better than New Orleans, and most celebrations call for a cocktail. Celebrations and cocktails naturally go together. More than sixty recipes from the city's legendary and quirky establishments are included, such as the Sazerac, Ramos Gin Fizz, Absinthe Suissesse, and dozens more. Each is stunningly photographed and accompanied by recipes, both traditional and unconventional. From highfalutin to down home, the Big Easy's mixologists and bartenders take great pride in well-crafted cocktails designed for lazy afternoons, early excursions, before or after meals, at cocktail parties, or to top off an evening. We know what a cocktail means; a proper one is an attitude. Swagger into a joint or sashay into a swanky establishment-at either end of the spectrum, cocktails are sipped and savored. Combine libation and service, ambiance, and spirited companions (preferably accompanied by music), and a drink becomes magical. A cocktail. An experience. Conviviality is a New Orleans custom. Let's discuss it over a cocktail.
The latest addition to the Classic Recipes Series, this compilation provides recipes and techniques paired with the inspiration behind each drink. All infusions are home-tested with the nonprofessional mixologist in mind.
