Classic and Contemporary Cocktails
The number of independent gin distilleries has increased significantly in recent years, and there is far more than simple tonic that can be added to the spirit. This cocktail collection includes the classic Martini and Long Island Iced Tea as well as more unusual recipes, such as the ‘vibrant and zesty’ West Side Pink Flamingo, and ‘light and floral’ drinks infused with ingredients such as chamomile or cucumber.
