The Little Book of Whiskey Cocktails


The Little Book of Whiskey Cocktails sets out to share the stories of the wide whiskey-making world and recipes suitable for whiskey drinkers of all expertise levels. Bryan Paiement takes a practical approach to exploring the various ways in which the spirit can be mixed and enjoyed. Beginning with a brief history of whiskey, Paiement answers many questions that even aficionados can’t help but stumble over: What is the difference between "whiskey" and "whisky?" Does bourbon have to come from Kentucky? How many times does Irish whiskey need to be distilled? Twenty classic whiskey cocktail recipes and twenty original recipes follow in this pocket-sized gift book. Each carefully curated recipe is introduced with details on the cocktail’s origins and concluded with bartenders' tips for shaking (or stirring) the perfect concoction. Time-tested classics like the Old Fashioned and the Rusty Nail are featured, providing whiskey novices with the necessary foundations. For seasoned whiskey drinkers, Paiement includes recipes from award-winners like the Paper Plane to handcrafted originals like the Scotch Smash.

Adorned with custom line-art illustrations, a key of whiskey ware and bar tools, and an extensive repertoire of bar jokes, Paiement brings whiskey’s terminology and mixology to any home bar.
