Gin and Vodka are the "silver queens" of the cocktail cabinet. Both are elegant, colourless and very subtly flavoured, making them ideal mixers with almost anything. Indeed, in polite company Gin and vodka are hardly ever drunk on their own. While gin enjoys a somewhat aristocratic reputation, vodka is the traditional drink of Eastern European countries like Poland and Russia. And for the inventive cocktail creator, vodka is the perfect ingredient. All it does is add to the alcoholic strength of the drink without noticeably changing the flavour. Gin & Vodka Cocktails offers 33 cocktail recipes based on the "silver queens", together with a brief look at the history and lore of both spirits and essential information on glasses, mixing, garnishing and serving.
Gin is the world's second favourite spirit - a sophisticated drink with enduring popular appeal. This book examines the history of the drink, from its roots as a medicine in 16th-century Holland through its chequered history as England's national drink, to its Prohibition heyday as the cocktail set's choice in 1920s USA. It also examines the distilling processes and tasting notes for all the classic gin brands from around the world, and includes gin cocktail and cooking tips.
