A first-of-its-kind collection, The Brooklyn Bartender gathers 300 of the most innovative, exciting, and authentic cocktail recipes from this booming, destination borough at the height of its international popularity.
Brooklyn is one of the top trendsetting places today anywhere. Its neighborhoods, artists, writers, restaurants, and, yes, drinking establishments set the pace for the rest of the nation. Brooklyn Bartender takes us behind the bar to experience 300 of the best and most inventive drinks being served today, plus tips for at-home mixologists. Organized by spirit, the recipes allow readers to replicate bartenders' signature drinks, including everything from the ornate juleps and cobblers of Maison Premiere to the party-friendly "Frozemonade" at Extra Fancy to the namesake gin cocktail of Clover Club. Additional features include "5 Takes on the Martini" and variations on other classic drinks, as well as bartenders' recommendation for events, infused spirits, and more.
Designed to be the perfect bar-side companion, the sophisticated compilation will be enhanced by more than 250 photos and illustrations.
