For a limited time we have copies signed by Jason Hedges.
Stressing the use of fresh, seasonally available ingredients, this cocktail book from an NYC beverage pro who has worked at restaurants such as Gotham Bar & Grill, Aldea, and L’Amico brings cocktail making in line with ideas that have become standard in kitchens across the country.
Offering more than 100 cocktail recipes, author Jason Hedges also includes an extensive section on basic techniques and ingredients, as well as formulas for flavored syrups and stylish garnishes.
His cocktail recipes are carefully crafted around the characteristics of particular spirits, calling for a certain bourbon in a mint julep and a specific tequila in a lemongrass-flavored paloma.
Among the drinks which really show off Hedges’ attention to seasonal flavor profiles are:
- The Garden Tree, which includes pea, arugula, and mint syrup
- Blackberry Lemon Verbena Smash
- Pumpkin Corpse Reviver #1
- The Winter Old-Fashioned, flavored with vanilla beans, chestnut, and coffee
Practical and inspiring for those looking to bring a fresh approach to a beverage program.
