How to enjoy Gin: Shake, Muddle, Stir by Dan Jones »
Over 40 of the best cocktails and drinks for serious gin drinkers
Gin, once a tipple beloved by grandmas and desperate housewives, is now the world’s fastest-growing artisanal spirit.
This fragrant, delicious beverage is staging a comeback. In Gin: Shake, Muddle, Stir, booze-enthusiast Dan Jones will teach you how to select your gin, from British and Scottish classics to international megabrands and fresh, young indie upstarts from the UK to Australia and the States.
The book will then show you how to stock your home bar like a pro, with marvellous mixers, butt-tingling bitters and essential and impressive tools and glassware, which all serve to enhance the world’s very best gins.
Then it’s on to the recipes: some classic, some downright dirty. Start with the zingy staples – a G&T, Gin Rickey, or Dirty Martini – and graduate to more sizzling concoctions like a crowd-pleasing Dickens’ Hot Gin Punch, a classy Sloe Gin & Tempranillo Negroni or an x-rated Naked Peach.
Gin: Shake, Muddle, Stir will show you just how versatile this juniper-laced spirit is, and proves there’s a gin-based cocktail out there for everyone, just waiting to be discovered.
Now, let’s drink gin.
