Pink gin has never been more popular so why not shake up your own rosy-hued cocktails at home with more than 25 perfectly-pink recipes. 'Pink gin' was originally a simple cocktail of London Dry Gin seasoned with a dash of angostura bitters, but recently this term has blossomed and is now used to describe any gin infused with pink or red fruits, plants or spices alongside the usual botanicals found in the spirit. These include strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb, pink grapefruit, rhubarb, sloes and rose petals and the resulting blush-coloured and fragrant spirits can be enjoyed in a range of delicious cocktails. From the simplest gin and tonic or a straight-up pink martini to bartenders' favourites the Clover Club, Gimlet and Tom Collins, a pink gin will add extra pep to your drinking experience. Established brands with international reach such as Gordon's and Beefeater have recently added pink gins to their ranges, plus sunshine-fuelled Mediterranean distillers such as Spanish Larios and Italian Malfy are all creating elegant fruit-infused gins in highly desirable bottles. So whether you're a gin expert wanting to update a beloved classic cocktail, relatively new to the gin scene and keen to try the latest innovations, or have simply found that fruitier tipple is your thing, you'll find all the pink gin inspiration you need here.

Prohibition in the US was instituted during the 1920s, making the sale of alcohol illegal, in an effort to `clean up' the sins of those `evil' imbibers. However, far from shutting down the country's debauchery (and, let's face it, fun), it gave rise to a proliferation of speakeasies - underground drinking dens that became particularly popular in New York. Here, the golden era of the cocktail was born. The iconic Sidecar, White Lady, Clover Club and French 75 cocktails, among many others, were born in the dark, smokey, drinking dens: the speakeasies. Speakeasy is a cocktail book that celebrates this exciting gin-soaked, gangster-frollicking era, with 200 cocktails for every taste. With cool 1920s-style illustrations throughout, and a perfect gift format, this is the one cocktail book to relive the heady golden days.

American tavern owners caused a sensation in the late eighteenth century when they mixed sugar, water, bitters, and whiskey and served the drink with rooster feather stirrers. The modern version of this "original cocktail," widely known as the Old Fashioned, is a standard in any bartender's repertoire and holds the distinction of being the only mixed drink ever to rival the Martini in popularity. In The Old Fashioned, Gourmand Award--winning author Albert W. A. Schmid profiles the many people and places that have contributed to the drink's legend since its origin. This satisfying book explores the history of the Old Fashioned through its ingredients and accessories -- a rocks glass, rye whiskey or bourbon, sugar, bitters, and orange zest to garnish -- and details the cocktail's surprising influence on the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and the Broadway musical scene, as well as its curious connection to the SAT college entrance examination. Schmid also considers the impact of various bourbons on the taste of the drink and reviews the timeless debate about whether to muddle. This spirited guide is an entertaining and refreshing read, featuring a handpicked selection of recipes along with delicious details about the particularities that arose with each new variation. Perfect for anyone with a passion for mixology or bourbon, The Old Fashioned is a cocktail book for all seasons.
