Spirits & cocktails

A cocktail book focused on making cocktails at home: making your own gin, your own infusions, cordials, shrubs and other cocktail ingredients, also how to recreate perhaps slightly simpler, less expensive versions of favourite, on-trend cocktails.

'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.

Praise for Homemade Cocktails: The essential guide to making great cocktails, infusions, syrups, shrubs and more

  • 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. - Daily Telegraph

  • Praise for Helen McGinn's Teetotal Tipples:

  • I loved McGinn's The Knackered Mother's Wine Club, inspired by her award-winning blog. Here she explains how not to drink, suggesting mocktails, infusions, cordials, non-alcoholic beers and wines, and other adult soft drinks to help you actually enjoy Dry January . . . and any other dry spells you choose to embark on. Having just completed a very dull and dry August, I'm sold on this already. - Editor's Choice, Bookseller

  • Praise for Helen McGinn's Homemade Cocktails:

  • My old friend and drinking partner Helen writing a book on teetotal tipples! Whatever next? But she does it with great wit and common sense, and almost persuades me that a booze-free January is a thing of beauty. Almost.

  • Praise for Helen McGinn's Homemade Cocktails:

  • An engaging new book . . . [Helen's] clever mocktails should get you through a dry January without too much pain. - Guardian Weekend magazine

  • Praise for Helen McGinn's Homemade Cocktails:

  • The mocktails and infusions are savoury rather than sweet, and the recipes rely on ingredients with plenty of falvour (...) these are drinks you can make and enjoy the ritual of making, a little bit like opening a fine bottle of wine or mixing the perfect G&T. - Daily Echo, Bournemouth
