Craft Cocktails at Home: Giveaway

"The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best." -Epictectus
 
This quote sits on my desk as a constant reminder to me. It's something that has been fundamental in shaping my life-hanging out with those that push me, inspire me, teach me. There is a particular group of food science and molecular gastronomy men in Boston (and now throughut the US as we've migrated) who constantly inspire me in the kitchen and bar with their creations. And one of them-Kevin Liu just published a pretty amazing handbook- Craft Cocktails at Home. He kindly offered to giveaway one of the the paperback version to one of my readers.

This book is a MUST if you are working to curate your own home bar, want to experiement with simple cocktails and progress to more complex varieties, or you just want to spice up your liquor knowledge. I had a chance to review it before it was published and the recipes and techniques are quite jaw-dropping!


Since another one of my "words to live by" is-if you're going to drink, drink well-enter away!

My all the time drink is a vodka w/ soda and lemon BUT if I had to pick a favorite it's a vodka drink I had at Founding Farmers in DC with balls of melon and basil.

My favorite is a French 75 with Cognac in the winter and Gin in the summer :)

My cocktail preferences change with the seasons, and I think my current cocktail passion is a clue that I am ready for spring! - Vodka with soda, thyme, lemon, and lavender.

In the winter months, I like a simple whiskey + ginger ale. However, I recently made a cucumber mint mojito and that was DELICIOUS!

My favorite is an Almaretto Sour! Although I like all things whiskey as well :)
