The Cocktails of the Ritz Paris

The Cocktails of the Ritz Paris

$23.99

The former bartender at the Ritz Paris's legendary Bar Hemingway reveals the intoxicating secrets for concocting the world's greatest cocktails.

The Cocktails of the Ritz Paris transports readers back to the heady days when Ernest Hemingway and his fellow Lost Generation expatriates frequented the Ritz Paris, site of perhaps the most well-known bar in the world. The Bar Hemingway began as the Petit Bar in 1921 and was frequented by the likes of Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, and Noel Coward.

With the same richness of the Ritz's cosmopolitan tradition, bartender-author Colin Peter Field reveals the true histories behind such classics as the Sidecar, the Dry Martini, the Bloody Mary, the Dirty Earl Grey Martini, and the Corpse Reviver No. 2.  Accompanying each recipe are fascinating comments and asides on the who, when, where, and why of the cocktail's genesis and evolution.

Much more than a mere recipe reference, The Cocktails of the Ritz Paris leads discriminating tipplers and Francophiles alike on an eye-opening historical walk through the world and culture of the cocktail set. Exploring everything from proper garniture and the intricate psychology of drink-mixing to the all-important task of glass selection and which cocktails are particularly suitable for cigar accompaniment, Field's book is a delicious mix of sophistication and charm.
