There is nothing like a well crafted cocktail. I love the way the flavors of a smooth cocktail play together in my mouth. How not one flavor overrides another. That is a GOOD cocktail. I’ve now tried several of the recipes from Greg Henry’s Savory Cocktails: Sour Spicy Herbal Umami Smoky Rich Strong I can say, he created some GOOD cocktails. I love my little collection of recipe books, and this book has become one of the additions to my collection that I pick up often.
The pictured cocktail is a Green Tea Gimlet— a delightfully refreshing drink that is perfect for a warm Spring or Summer day. I’m keeping the recipe a secret though and I’ll leave it to those who get the Savory Cocktails book or to one lucky winner! (If you want to try out a recipe from the book, try his Honey Clove Syrup that I used for my Old Irish Cocktail!)
The good people at Ulysses Press have offered up an edition to one very lucky winner!
