For those interested in experimenting and researching the concept of hot alcoholic drinks, this book contains lots of ideas. It does address the basics of the more traditional drinks. But then adds a interesting concepts such as using bacon-infused bourbon.
It also has wonderful additional sections. There is a section is on bar basics such as garnishes, glassware, opening champagne, etc. Another section is on how to make many of the nonstandard ingredients such as bacon-infused bourbon, various simple syrups, etc. Further sections cover interesting related recipes such as how to make homemade marshmallows, candied bacon, Mexican wedding cakes, etc.
All in all an interesting book chocked full of ideas. It is also beautifully illustrated with many wonderful pictures. Certainly a fun book to read while sipping on a hot toddy on a winter's evening.

I saw this book first at the Whole Foods market priced somewhere around $25. I loved that it had so many beautiful photos and great recipes, so I thought this would be a fun book to include in the wine gift baskets I'm making for a few people for Christmas, but decided to check Amazon first to see if I could find the book at a better price. Yep! Glad I checked. I bought 5 of these books on Amazon.

Early Grey, Lavender, hot chocolate, buttered rum, nutella, infusions and mullng spices oh my!
The book has a nice graphic quality to it and a nice layout and small touches like the ribbon book mark make it feel luxurious and beautiful and definitely gift-worthy. Would make a great gift along with some whiskey stones and spices and spirits for a single recipe, that you could use the built-in ribbon to mark.
Well made, nice photos, we shall see about the recipes.

I came across this at the mall and found it cheaper online. This has a bunch of really tasty things in it that I've worked through this winter and I recommend it to people excited about mixology and aren't afraid to make something super cool with a little extra work.

I love this book, it fills a much needed gap and introduces you to both simple and complex combinations. Winter cocktails is not something intuitive to me (the way summer ones are) so I have been enjoying a number of these great warming cocktail.
