Details: Product Description This title shows you how to make all the fabulous vodka drinks, from the Screwdriver, Harvey Wallbanger and Sea Breeze to more exotic concoctions such as the Chilli Vodkatini, Apres-Ski and French Horn. It includes entertaining anecdotes and short histories about each cocktail, with expert tips on how to prepare and blend the ingredients, and how to serve the finished drink. It offers handy advice on essential cocktail-making equipment, the glasses and hints and tips, including creative ideas for garnishes and decorations. It is a useful guide to the different types of vodka on the market, from Russia, Poland, Sweden and Finland, as well as vodkas that have infusions of blackcurrant, cherry and bison-grass added. Simple, yet sophisticated, vodka is one of the world's most popular and versatile spirits. It is always served very cold, then drunk in a variety of ways: it can be knocked back as a quick shot or sipped slowly; drunk neat or blended with other spirits and mixers; or used to accompany dishes such as Russian caviar. This book contains a selection of 50 vodka mixes that you can make at home, from classics such as the Screwdriver to concoctions including Kew Punch and Soft Fruit and Ginger Cup. Each recipe begins by explaining the history of the cocktail - for example, the Vodkatini was made famous by James Bond and is shaken, not stirred. There are also guidelines on how to serve vodka, the bartending equipment you will need, the types of glasses that can be used and tricks of the trade, such as crushing ice, frosting glasses, making decorative twists, muddling drinks and steeping vodka with fruit and chillies. The art of cocktail-making is as appealing as ever, and whichever type of vodka mix you prefer, this book will help you to enjoy a delicious tipple even more. Review This book will be welcomed by any vodka lover who has hitherto been limited to a Martini. The book starts with the history of vodka and an overview of its Russian origins. We learn about different styles of vodka and how it is made. In the past this spirit was made of almost any fruit or vegetable but now it's almost always made from grains. There are dozens of classic vodka cocktails as well as many more which were new to me. Each cocktail includes not only the recipe but also its provenance. For instance, the Moscow Mule dates back to Los Angeles in 1947. The celebrated Vesper, much appreciated in Dukes Bar in London, was first mentioned by James Bond who named this cocktail after his then-girlfriend. There are cocktails here to suit every taste, time of year and occasion. Bailey s Comet is a slug of the eponymous Irish cream with the addition of vodka. Served over ice this becomes a serious drink so do give your guests a warning, or ensure the spare room is ready. The Cosmopolitan is a classic and should be in every bartender's repertoire. It's popular at Christmas as a key ingredient is cranberry juice! --Chrissie Walker, Mostly Food & Travel, September 2020 About the Author Stuart Walton has been writing about alcoholic drinks since the early 1990s.
