The Modern Mixologist

My good friend, Tony Abou-Ganim, has been working in the hospitality and cocktail industry for 20 years. Recently, he published just a fraction of his knowledge in his encompassing tome, The Modern Mixologist: Contemporary Classic Cocktails from Agate Surrey publishing. This gorgeous book highlights sixty of his amazing drink recipes—signature creations as well as twists on familiar classics. Co-written by Mary Elizabeth Faulkner, the book gives an essential primer on needed tools, essential flavors, and histories of spirits to make even the most casual home mixologist an immediate expert. As you all know, I’m spirited about cocktails, and this book only makes me more excited about the future of fine mixology. The Modern Mixologist by Tony Abou-Ganim is available for $35 in bookstores and online.
