From the voice of spirited reason, cocktail extraordinaire Paul Clarke brings you his highly anticipated book, The Cocktail Chronicles. This stylishly clad book features over 200 recipes including rediscovered classics, enduring standards and contemporary cocktails. Packed full of neat tidbits and background stories, this is a timeless almanac for cocktail lovers alike.
With cocktails being somewhat off the radar for nearly half a century, Paul has truly embraced its renaissance and his literary works have paved the way for mixologists and drinkers since he started his blog (of the same title) in 2005. Currently the Executive Editor for Imbibe Magazine, Paul is an award-winning writer and has been published in The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and many other publications.
Paul’s first book, with hopefully many more to come, The Cocktail Chronicles is broken down into five chapters that make it easily navigated from classics like the Gimlet all the way to contemporary masterpieces like the Dolores Park Swizzle. The aim was to make this approachable to all readers with cocktail recipes that are refined and inventive, yet easy to make. This book is a great study guide for following the evolving cocktail movement by being informative, digestible, and full of recipes that are just so darn fun. So let’s shake it!
