Who’s the author? Evening Standard colomnist, Richard Godwin.
What’s it about? The Spirits is about rediscovering the lost art of cocktailing. Godwin's little book of cocktails brings a shake of 1930's classic cocktail glamour and sophistication with a twist of modernity. Expressly structured for the amateur, it will remind you just how much pleasure there is in cokctailing at home.
Recipes we love: English Breakfast Martini, Pink Rabbit, Charlie Chaplin.
Good book for: Anyone looking to explore the world of cocktail making at home. As Godwin says, "Of all the skills you might acquire in life, the ability to make a good cocktail will never be a waste of time. No lover will complain when you present them with a well-iced Negroni as they walk through your door; no house-guest will complain about a round of Gin Sours."
