A good cocktail used to be a simple affair--a spirit or two, a mixer and a little ice. Those days are over. Thanks to a new trend in molecular mixology, cocktails have become far more interesting. In The Book of Cocktail Alchemy, rising star of the cocktail scene Tristan Stephenson explores the art of preparing the perfect cocktail. Taking the classics, he explains their fascinating origins, introducing the colorful characters who inspired or created them and how they were intertwined within their historical context. Moving on, he reinvents each cocktail from his laboratory adding modern twists which are sure to amaze. Stick to the classics and stir up a Sazerac or a Rob Roy, or try some of his contemporary variations, and create a Green Fairy Sazerac topped with an absinthe ''air'' or a Insta-age Rob Roy with the ''age'' on the side. Also included is a comprehensive reference section, detailing all the techniques you will ever need, classic and modern. Using a mixture of science and an amazing aptitude for understanding flavor and the universal appeal of the cocktail, Tristan has created an exciting, essential anthology for any cocktail enthusiast.
