The Bompas & Parr Cocktail Book: Recipes for Mixing Extraordinary Drinks
Written by Harry Parr and Sam Bompas
Already responsible for giving jello a 21st-century makeover, the boys at Bompas & Parr now focus their attention on the perennially popular cocktail. But of course with an extra-special twist.
"[This book] will make you smart, able to comprehend the cocktail long before you reach for a shaker, and primed to mix a fine drink once you do." -- The New York Times
Sam and Harry take us on a rollercoaster journey through the wonderful world of fizzes, smashes, juleps, shrubs, and fixes. Classics, new kids on the block, and crazy concoctions are all to be expected, but the boys also provide advice on the all-important presentation, the ingredients, getting the ice just right, and, of course, how to host a show-stopping event.
Veterans of successful alcoholic adventures such as "Alcoholic Architecture" a walk-in cloud of breathable G&T) and the "Architectural Punchbowl" (a uilding flooded with enough Courvoisier Punch for 25,000 people!), Bompas Parr will ensure you create a cocktail night to remember.
