GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO COCKTAILS


GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO COCKTAILS

ALFRED TONG    Book Number: 90835    Product format: Hardback

Very James Bond in its cover and artwork design, stylised gentlemen about town decorate the pages of a smashing little book about cocktail culture for both men and women. Mix a Margarita with mojo, a Gimlet with grace, and a Peach Bellini that packs a punch. Personally selected by Alfred Tong are 150 classic recipes for Bloody Mary and Old Fashioned to more experimental mixes such as the Alabama Slammer and Hellfire Punch. Tools of the trade, the store cupboard, principles, tips and techniques, etiquette and drinking tips, literature, film and TV, semiotics and style, classic bars, how to throw a cocktail party, and even seduction, it's a book for anyone who aspires to class and elegance. Very graphic in its design, there are colour illustrations for each of the glasses to be used - tumbler, champagne flute, martini glass, hurricane glass, highball, champagne coupe, Tom Collins glass; essential ingredients, food to whet the appetite, strength, the senses, and how cold to serve the cocktail to make a splendid drink. Drink it all in from Harry's Bar in Venice the Peach Bellini, the Pina Colada from the Caribe Hilton, San Juan, the Sidecar from the Hemingway Bar at the Paris Ritz, the White Lady from the American Bar at the Savoy, and of course the Singapore Sling from the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel. Beautifully presented 144pp with blue page edges, all served in impeccable taste. Sophisticated colour illus.
