Death & Co.

One of my favorite cocktail books from 2014 was the book of NYC’s Death & Co. Not only is it a gorgeous book with superior drink recipes, the drinks are also refreshingly unique. This book opened my eyes to making drinks with multiple base spirits. Some drinks with both rye and brandy, other drinks with one type of calvados and another type of apple brandy.
