Sip: 100 Gin Cocktails with Only 3 Ingredients
Gin crafters Sipsmith know a thing or two about cocktails: their founders met at a Negroni party.
The gin renaissance is the big drink trend of the past decade, and Sipsmith were instrumental in making it happen – petitioning the government to change the law to allow smaller, independent distillers to make delicious gin.
Whilst they are now big players in the gin and cocktail world, we have them to thank in part for the rise of individual distilleries creating the expansive range of gins on offer today.
In this book you will find expert mixing tips, drink history, and a range of classic cocktails. There are also new takes of cocktails ready to fine-tune your cocktail making skills.
It’s a fantastic gift for cocktail lovers and gin enthusiasts alike.
