‘This book is dangerous: I had a Boulevardier in my hand five minutes after opening it’
Victoria Moore, Wine correspondent, the Daily Telegraph and BBC Good Food

‘Cocktail making demystified at last! What a useful book’
India Knight

The cocktail scene has exploded in recent years and the bars are booming. From the classics to modern-day twists with infused spirits and tonics, vermouths and bitters, ordering a cocktail at the bar has never been so much fun. Which is great news for some but if, like the author, you really don’t get out much, then it can feel like you’re missing out on all the fun. Until now.

Helen McGinn’s Homemade Cocktails is full of recipes, hints and tips to help you re-write your at-home cocktail repertoire. From classics to the latest in cocktail fashions, this book helps you raise the bar whether it’s to impress your guests or simply treat yourself. You’ll find ways to use up what’s in those bottles lurking at the back of the cupboard and knock up a fabulous cocktail in no time, adding instant glamour to any occasion.

Homemade Cocktails is a fresh take on a well-worn subject: a beautiful edit of the modern and the classic cocktail scene that serves u those drinks you might want (and could be bothered) to make at home.
Victoria Moore, Wine correspondent, the Daily Telegraph and BBC Good Food
I didn't think I needed another cocktail book, but Helen's warm (and mischievous) voice has persuaded me that there are a lot more easy drinks I could be making using the ingredients I already have in my fridge and cupboards. I can't wait to get stuck into a non-alcoholic strawberry and basil shrub, and might even break out the kummel and try a Silver Bullet.
