Cocktail Codex: Fundamentals, Formulas, Evolutions
Cocktail Codex is possibly the only cocktail book you'll ever need. We'll start by referring to filmmaker Stephen Soderberg's description of the book because it's just so good! "If Dora the Explorer turned twenty-one, split herself into three people, and decided to write the Magna Carta of booze books, this would be the result. And, unlike every other book you'll read this year, Cocktail Codex is packed with actual knowledge you can use in the real world. Please, please, can Cinema Codex be next?!". But this isn't the first rodeo for authors Alex, Nick and Dave. They previously brought us Death & Co, a book of recipes titled after their New York bar of the same name, which became the definitive guide to contemporary craft cocktails. In Cocktail Codex, they teach us the basic building blocks of modern cocktails and give us the tools to master classics and create new recipes. For example, in the Old Fashioned chapter, they give us the classic recipe, then their ideal recipe (which will have some flare on the classic, adding special booze, sugar or bitters for example). This is followed by paragraphs on understanding the template of the cocktail, experimenting with the core recipe, experimenting with the balance and exploring the seasoning (bitters in this case). The also discuss a variety of techniques from various top mixologists, and look at how you can make variations on the original recipe. Cocktail Codex has everything a beginner needs, but also enough to keep you experimenting for a life-time! A fantastic gift for anyone with a serious interest in making cocktails.
