Careers and fortunes have been built on the back of a man’s ability to show people a good time, and what better way than to perfect the art of mixing a cocktail. In The Gentleman’s Guide to Cocktails Alfred Tong teaches you how to mix a Margarita with mojo, a Gimlet with grace, and a Peach Bellini that packs a punch.
With over 150 recipes – personally selected by Alfred for their style and flavour – it covers classics like the Bloody Mary and Old Fashioned to more experimental mixes, such as the Alabama Slammer and Hellfire Punch. As well as recipes, Alfred imparts his wisdom on essential cocktail etiquette. Learn how to make a toast with a Martini, close a deal with your good taste and charm, and most importantly, when to release your inner cad. Illustrated with sophisticated drawings by Jack Hughes, this book will turn the amateur home barman into the perfect cocktail party host.
