Periodic Table of cocktails
Do you know what a muddler is? What's the difference between a highball glass and a whiskey glass? Don't know? Well the Periodic Table of Cocktails is a fun, concise book that can answer these types of questions. The foundation of the book is a periodic table organized by cocktail styles (Martinis and Up, Fruity/Tropical, Highballs/Muddles, Collinses/Fizzes, etc.) and by predominant base alcohols across the chart’s rows (vodka, gin, tequila, etc.).
If you like one cocktail in the table, you should enjoy all the cocktails that surround it. The book also offers the background history and make-it-yourself recipe for each of the more than 100 “elements” or cocktails. The book will be published with a companion volume, The Periodic Table of Wine.
