Shelby here! I bought the book Shake for Zach for Christmas and he has become a cocktail connoisseur! The book starts with a list of the authors’ preferred spirits and tools to stock your bar like a professional hipster mixologist. It also talks about the importance of good ingredients – like raw sugar cubes and DIY-dried rosemary. There is an entire section on the type of ice that should be used for certain drinks.
We made a bunch of cocktails when we were in Steamboat Springs with friends.
The cocktail recipe book is organized by season, so we have only been making the winter cocktails – the Rye Old Fashioned
We made the Mid-Winter Marg for our New Year’s Eve party
