Grab your bow tie and a rocks glass, because we're talking all about one of the most classic - and classy - spirits. Whether you like bourbon, scotch or rye, whiskey's diverse and complex taste will be your new go-to drink for parties, gatherings, or evenings in your study with a roaring fire. Whiskey can be an intimidating drink to the uninitiated. Most folks may not be able to drink it straight. We've got you covered. The Cocktail Whisperer, Warren Bobrow, author of Apothecary Cocktails (Fair Winds Press) incorporates some of the best whiskeys into hand-crafted cocktails that bring out the subtle notes and flavors of any good bourbon or scotch. Whiskey Cocktails features 75 traditional, newly-created, and original recipes for whiskey-based cocktails. This wonderfully crafted book also features drink recipes from noted whiskey experts and bartenders. One of the best new whiskey books of 2014 - TastingTable.com "In the cocktail movement, most cocktail books have ignored the whiskey drinker's palate, making us flip through pages of vodka, gin, and rum recipes before getting to a good whiskey recipe. In Whiskey Cocktails, Warren Bobrow did us all a favor. He makes cocktails with Scotch, Irish whiskey, Canadian whiskey, bourbon, Tennessee whiskey and a few others. Bobrow freshens up classic cocktail recipes and offers a few recipes that will surely become classics themselves. Finally, we, whiskey drinkers, have our own cocktail book to cherish. Thanks, Warren, for skipping all those other spirits. Whiskey Cocktails treats whiskey as the rightful king it is. - Fred Minnick, author of Whiskey Women: The Untold Story of How Women Saved Bourbon, Scotch & Irish Whiskey "Warren has done it again. Whiskey Cocktails is a sublime journey of the senses with mouthwatering recipes and exquisite photography. Warren leads you on a historic and personal tour and keeps you reeled in with his graceful prose that emanates from the heart. An ardent sensualist, he approaches cocktails in the way an untarnished artist approaches the canvas--guileless, ingenious, and heartfelt. His cocktail compositions are true works of art that will stand the test of time. His commitment to sourcing unique, refreshing, quality ingredients to enhance his cocktails is second to none and it shows in the elaborate, delectable concoctions he wields." - Robert Sickler, Master of Whisky "Before I made the drinks, I could already taste them. Warren's ability to articulate the subtlety of the flavors in his recipes makes possible tasting by reading." - Allison Goldberg, founder, Fruitations Craft Soda & Cocktail Mixers "Warren Bobrow uses his great knowledge of mixing flavors to provide a book of extraordinary whiskey cocktails that will be enjoyed by all." - Michael Veach, bourbon historian, The Filson Historical Society (Louisville, KY)

A complete history of one of the world's most iconic cocktails--now the poster child of the modern cocktail revival--with fifty recipes for classic variations as well as contemporary updates. No single cocktail is as iconic, as beloved, or as discussed and fought-over as the Old-Fashioned. Its formula is simple: just whiskey, bitters, sugar, and ice. But how you combine those ingredients—in what proportion, using which brands, and with what kind of garnish—is the subject of much impassioned debate. The Old-Fashioned is the spirited, delightfully unexpected story of this renowned and essential drink: its birth as the ur-cocktail in the nineteenth century, darker days in the throes of Prohibition, re-ascension in the 1950s and 1960s (as portrayed and re-popularized by Don Draper on Mad Men), and renaissance as the star of the contemporary craft cocktail movement. Also featured are more than forty cocktail recipes, including classic variations, regional twists, and contemporary updates from top bartenders around the country. All are accessible, delicious, and elegant in their simplicity, demonstrating the versatility and timelessness of the Old-Fashioned formula. With its rich history, stunning photography, and impeccable recipes, The Old-Fashioned is a celebration of one of America’s greatest bibulous achievements. It is a necessary addition to any true whiskey- or cocktail-lover’s bookshelf, and destined to become a classic on par with its namesake beverage.

Now updated with newly discovered recipes and historical information, this new edition includes the origins of the first American drink, the Mint Julep (which Wondrich places before the American Revolution), and those of the Cocktail itself. It also provides more detail about 19th century spirits, many new and colorful anecdotes and details about Thomas's life, and a number of particularly notable, delicious, and influential cocktails not covered in the original edition, rounding out the picture of pre-Prohibition tippling. This colorful and good-humored volume is a must-read for anyone who appreciates the timeless appeal of a well-made drink-and the uniquely American history behind it.
