Those seeking a bibulous bible should look no further than Ten Cocktails... It's a fabulous publication that sees Lascelles sharing her expert knowledge on the art of mixing drinks, thanks to her experiences traversing the globe in the name of the perfect libation.
As lighter evenings call for a return to the cocktail hour, this great little book is the perfect source of inspiration... A perfect blend of history and how-to.
With her new book, Ten Cocktails, Alice Lascelles joins the likes of David Wondrich (Imbibe) and Rosie Schaap (Drinking with Men), as one of the few people who can elevate the craft of writing about drinks and drinking to a true literary level. Perhaps it's better to just say This Book is a Great Read, and you'll Learn a Lot, Too. Who could ask for more?
I love, love, love the book...Very nicely done indeed.
Landing somewhere between a memoir, recipe book and history lesson, The Art Of Convivial Drinking has something for every reader...highly accomplished.
Beautiful... it's the thinking drinker's cocktail book.
Alice Lascelles is one of my favourite drinks writers, she has that rare and perfect mix of style, wit and practicality.
The quintessential guide to maxing and relaxing.
This book is destined to become the most stained and beloved book in home bars around the world, after it leaves people's bedsides. All-in-all, a great and relevant read.
With an approachable conversational style Alice belies a superb knowledge of the world of drinks, imparting interesting facts, anecdotes and recommended formulations for each cocktail.
