When entertaining friends or a special lady there are two things that immediately add a sense of class and sophistication to you and your apartment: coffee table books and cocktails. You’re not doing yourself any favours if your coffee table is stacked with dirty magazines and even dirtier plates, and you’re sure to impress your guests with your mastery of all things spirits.
Death & Co., one of New York Cities most heralded cocktail bars, have released a compendium of cocktail recipes from the simple to the complex to the unheard of. With more 500 signature Death & Co creations as well as classic drink formulas, Death & Co is not only a comprehensive collection of the bar’s best, but also tackles the complete cocktail education with classic New York bravado.With chapters on the theory and philosophy of drink-making; a complete guide to the spirits, tools, and other ingredients needed to make a great bar, Death & Co is destined to become the go-to reference on craft cocktails.
Co-owners David Kaplan and Alex Day (along with co-writer Nick Fauchald) not only present information and recipes, but also weave in stories – from regulars, from other bartenders in the business, from their own staff – that give you a feel for what makes a bar like Death & Co special.
