In 'Whiskey Cocktails,' America’s top mixologist Brian Van Flandern returns in the fifth edition of Assouline’s best-selling cocktail series. Whiskey is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyed spirits, sipped by Madison Avenue 'ad men' and blue-collar workers alike—the 'good ol’ boys drinking whiskey and rye' of Don Mclean’s American Pie. Now distilled in all corners of the world, it has grown to become the most popular liquor even in countries not typically associated with its manufacture. While Japanese distilleries frequently win awards and accolades for their internationally reputed single malts, it is only the choicest productions that receive appellation d’origine contrôlée, with the oldest spirit, Scotch, coming only from Scotland, and bourbon and rye both tracing their (albeit disputed roots) to the American South.
This book presents recipes from the mind of one of America’s top mixologists, all shot against the backdrop of such legendary New York City bars as Brandy Library, The Dead Rabbit and McSorley's Bar. Like the many vintages explored within, 'Whiskey Cocktails' belongs so high up on the shelf that even the most seasoned bartender may need a ladder to reach it.
