This is an essential addition to the library of any cocktail enthusiast, providing cost-effective ways to make the most out of your collection of white spirits.
Gin, Vodka, Rum and Tequila - four clear spirits each with their own unique characteristics that, when combined with a squirt of lime, a splash of fresh lemon juice or a jigger of vermouth, can create a whole host of cocktails. White Spirits takes these bottles and provides recipes that allow you to make 100 cocktails with just a few extra ingredients such as fresh fruit, sugar or a dash of bitters.
By keeping things uncomplicated, there is no need to go out and buy ten different ingredients, reducing the cost of making quality cocktails. Readers will be surprised by how easy it is to make drinks with completely different flavour profiles by doing something as straightforward as replacing one spirit with another. The introductory chapter takes you on a trip through the history of hard liquor and cocktails, then provides the home mixologist with a detailed description of the equipment needed to set up your home bar, plus a few hacks and tricks to help you save money along the way.
