Hello. Hello! Thanks for checking out my page. I'm a lover and student of cocktails. Several years ago, I started a project to mix over 1,000 different cocktails and photo-document them, just for sh*ts and giggles. Inevitably, my survival instincts and the encouragement of friends persuaded me to try and make the project lucrative. And lo, a book was born!
A uniquely helpful book. Fueled by a passion for cocktails, spirits, and their history, I have written, designed, and shot all of the photography for what I feel is a uniquely helpful cocktail recipe book. I believe there are no other cocktail books on the market presently that are this comprehensive and well-organized/user-friendly. I've come up with 68 creative lists with which to organize a large number of cocktails and help you find what you're in the mood to drink.
Historical and current. The book is a fun and practical guide either for first getting your feet wet or for expanding your existing cocktail knowledge base. It's a comprehensive snapshot of the cocktail's great history as well as what's happening right now in the cocktail world, which is currently experiencing a great renaissance. It's full of great classic drinks from the 19th and 20th centuries as well as current and cutting edge libations from some of the best bars and restaurants around the country and even around the world. I've taste-tested and star-rated all the recipes myself--filtering out any undesirables--and made them available to you at home in a practical guide, cutting your travel expenses by 100%!
Built to last. In addition to looking great and being highly giftable, the book has been designed for practicality and ease of use at the bar. The cover is laminated and the pages are UV coated, providing great moisture resistance in the event of spills, drooling, etc. It has a Wiro binding that allows you to lay the book flat while you're working from any given page.
Your help. The book is finished, proofed, and ready to print. All I need is your help to make this dream a reality. Please offer whatever support you can, because if my goal isn't met, I get nothing. But, if my goal is met, everybody wins and you get all kinds of fun rewards for helping me out. Happy drinking!
