60 great cocktails that you can put together in the time it takes to open and pour a bottle of wine.
The trend of cocktail making at home is set to continue now that so many of us appreciate how a delicious cocktail can make any evening special, and it really does not have to be time consuming. 60-Second Cocktails: Amazing Drinks to Make At Home in a Minute is the latest book from award-winning drinks writers and TV presenters Joel Harrison and Neil Ridley.
These simple-yet-delicious cocktails are divided into three chapters: No Shake, Sherlock - the easiest to make, requiring little or no preparation, and using standard spirits and mixers; Shake It Up - slightly more complex concoctions that need a quick shake or stir; and Magnificent Mixes - special drinks for the more decadent drinking occasions which require a little more prep, or an unusual ingredient here and there.
Joel Harrison & Neil Ridley are at the forefront of providing expertise and innovation in the spirits world. From whisky to gin, cognac to exotic drinks, the duo have a wealth of knowledge to share with audiences across the globe. They write about spirits on their website worldofspirits.com and regularly pen articles and features for a number of different publications, such as Whisky Magazine, Imbibe and the Evening Standard, as well as becoming judges for the World Whisky Awards and the prestigious I.W.S.C. awards. In the last two years, the duo have hosted over 250 whisky and other spirits tastings around the world from Japan to Lithuania. Their first book, Distilled, won the Fortnum & Mason award for Drinks Book of the Year in 2015. Joel is currently appearing on Channel 4's 'Tried and Tested' as the spirits expert with Michael Roux Jr.
