Salvatore Calabrese (aka The Maestro) isn’t one to muck about, nor do things in halves. I mean, he was the man who mixed the world’s most expensive cocktail at The Playboy Club in Mayfair worth £5,500 a glass (which he let us try.. legend). He’s also won Imbibes Personality of the Year Award 2015 and many other prestigious titles. Basically.. putting it bluntly, he’s a G.
So, when we heard that he had launched an updated and expanded version of his already popular book “Classic Cocktails” we thought, yes, let’s have us some of that.
This most recent super duper version has new chapters, beautiful images, up to the minute drink trends, tastes and techniques and more uncovered historical gems.
Enjoy seasonal ideas, 50 new drink recipes and forgotten favourites. Oh yes, this elegant volume also includes DIYs for essential cocktail ingredients, and advice on how to throw a home cocktail party of champions.
A cocktail bible, by an industry God. Can it get any better? Until his next volume, no, no it can’t.
We think it’s a pretty solid Christmas gift. Get it for £14.99 and have your friends and family become cocktail maestros, like you and The Maestro himself, Salvatore.
