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.

Another year, another cocktail menu… 5th Edition of the “Scientist McGee Cocktail Menu”!

Happy new year, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve, and enjoyed a nice tipple to say ‘goodbye’ to 2014. Looking forward to this new year of 2015, what better way to say ‘hello’ than an updated and revised edition of the “Scientist McGee Cocktail Menu”.

The “Scientist McGee Cocktail Menu” is essentially a documented collection of all the new drinks I’ve mixed up and enjoyed since the last edition. This newest version adds about 25 libations or so to the mix, and they’re all featured at the end of the book.  In addition to the newly added drinks, this edition also sees an updated cover, table of contents, bibliography, index, and even some updated photos of old drinks sprinkled in here and there.

So pull up a chair, chill some cocktail glasses, and measure some pours, because this book will be your best friend in the upcoming cold and wretched winter months.

Just click on the two pictures below to download the book in 2 parts.

Cheers to all of you, and may you have the best year of your life!  To 2015! Cheers!
