This book is about finding your next favorite cocktail, using the drinks you already know and love! Each the 21 chapters begins with a popular classic cocktail. On a single page, every drink will be similar to the classic cocktail in some way - one might swap out a single component (switching gin for bourbon changes a Negroni into a Boulevardier) or add an ingredient or two (putting bitters in a Gimlet transforms it into a Bennett). Find your usual go-to cocktail, and odds are there’s another drink in the same chapter you’ll enjoy just as much—or more! Bonus: this cocktail book also includes helpful tips on keeping a well-stocked bar and advice on garnishing drinks and throwing a party.
