Waiting for minimum critic reviews


History tells us that once a cocktail achieved prominence at the bar, the impulse to invent variations has been irresistible. ReMixology is a celebration of time-honored cocktails, the fascinating evolution of their formulas, and the inspiration they provide today’s craft bartenders. This book serves as a re-introduction to ten iconic potions, from the Manhattan to the Whiskey Sour, to the Old Fashioned to the Bloody Mary and more, and explores their progression and development in cocktail culture, and showcases a range of innovative and original, yet accessible interpretations that open the door to new possibilities in drinking and entertaining. Recipes will include:

Manhattan Nouveau
Savoy Champagne Cocktail
Jamaican Coffee
The Green Mary
And More

Each section will introduce a standard cocktail, offer details and insights about its genealogy, then follow with more than a dozen adaptations and variations gathered from the vintage cocktail era and from the expertise of working bartenders in progressive cocktail programs. Palate perspectives will be explored in lively headnotes, guiding the reader along the sensorial journey of 250 distinctive drinks, adapted to the home bar.
