“In a cocktail world that is starting to look and act more like a science laboratory than a bar, Evelyn Chick is a breath of fresh air. Her easy-to-follow recipes will give readers more time to entertain and enjoy the drinks themselves—and isn’t that the point?”

——Ivy Mix, American Bartender of the Year (2015 Spirited Awards), Mixologist of the Year (2016, Wine Enthusiast), co-owner Leyenda, Brooklyn

Book Description

Full of unpretentious recipes and useful tips and tricks for those who might need to resort to using a sports water bottle instead of a two-piece Boston shaker, this guide, from globally acclaimed bartender Evelyn Chick, provides readers with access to a world of flavors and sensations—those typically reserved for high-end cocktail bars—without having to leave home. Readers will quickly learn that a good cocktail is not found in how complex it is to create, the rarity of spirits, or the quality of the barware they have. A good cocktail is about joyful pursuit: being unafraid to make mistakes and the willingness to try something new.

From zero-proof and cannabis-infused cocktails, to beautiful and refreshing twists on cocktail-hour staples to whimsical new creations inspired by the people and places in Chick’s life, readers are sure to find their next after-work cocktail, celebration drink, canna-curious adventure, or backyard party favour among these pages.

Presented in a unique mood-based format, For the Love of Cocktails will not simply guide readers on how to make drinks according to spirit or flavor, but instead, provides inspiration for drink-making based on the mood the bartender is in (or the one they hope to inspire). The result is a wholesome appeal to readers to wholly consider their beverage options, and to embrace an ethos of drink-making that both inspires a great appreciation for spirits and builds a deep connection to the liquid in the glass.
