Publishers Text

From the authors of the best-selling and genre-defining cocktail book Death & Co, Cocktail Codex is a comprehensive primer on the craft of mixing drinks that employs the authors' unique "cocktail families" approach to give drink-makers of every level the tools to understand, execute, and improvise both classic and original cocktails.

"There are only six cocktails." So says David Kaplan, Nick Fauchald, and Alex Day, the visionaries behind the seminal craft cocktail bar Death & Co. In Cocktail Codex, these experts reveal for the first time their surprisingly simple approach to mastering cocktails: the "cocktail families," six easily identifiable (and memorizable!) templates that encompass all cocktails. Once you understand the hows and whys of each "family," you'll understand why some cocktails work and others don't, when to shake and when to stir, what you can omit and what you can substitute when you're missing ingredients, why you like the drinks you do, and what sorts of drinks you should turn to--or invent--if you want to try something new.
