Some of the best cocktails are the easiest to make.
Take the Cucumber Gimlet, for example: One part each vodka, lime juice, and lemonade; garnish with a basil leaf and it’s ready to drink. This book contains 40 simple recipes, including two-ingredient sips such as the Bamboo Cocktail as well as wonderful classics like the ever-popular Negroni. Using equal parts of the main ingredients and adding a dash of bitters or a splash of seltzer to gild the lily, these recipes prove that you don’t need to go to a bar to have great drinks at home. Add to that a few party tips and large-batch recipes and this collection of cocktails will be your go-to guide every time you invite the gang over for drinks.
