11 cocktail books to upgrade your home bar
There is a great selection of books for all levels that will complement your home bar accessories. Here are 10 books for your collection.
If you want to prepare a good cocktail, get out of the ordinary, and because we also know that not everyone can go to the bar… You should know that you can enrich your cocktail knowledge thanks to books with incredible recipes that go beyond the classic Gin Tonic, the Margarita or the Cuba Libre. Not that we have anything against these classics, but we think it would be great to nurture your cocktail knowledge and realize that we can even do wonders with what we find in the cupboard.
In addition to illustrating cocktail recipes, these books will explain the proper use of bar accessories and what they are: jigger, strainer, boston shaker, cocktail shaker, etc. You will also gain a better understanding of the use of spirits and how to mix them to find ideal flavor combinations.
