Preparing a first-class cocktail relies upon a deep understanding of its ingredients, the delicate alchemy of how all these ingredients work together.
In The Curious Bartender, Tristan Stephenson explores the art of preparing the perfect cocktail, explaining the science behind the flavour and the fascinating modern turns mixology has taken.
Showcasing a selection of classic cocktails, Tristan explains their intriguing origins, introducing the colourful historical characters who inspired or created them.
He reinvents each drink from his laboratory, adding contemporary twists to breathe fresh life into these vintage classics.
You can stay true to the originals such as a Sazerac or a Rob Roy, or experiment with some of his modern variations to create a Green Fairy Sazerac topped with an absinthe 'air' or an Insta-age Rob Roy with the 'age' on the side.
Also included is a reference section detailing all the techniques you will need.
