"Too bad all college textbooks weren't this much fun."--Garden & Gun
"A must for amateur and pro mixologists alike."--Chicago Tribune (Ten Best Cookbooks of the Year) "If Dora the Explorer turned twenty-one, split herself into three people, and decided to write the Magna Carta of booze books, this would be the result. And, unlike every other book you'll read this year, Cocktail Codex is packed with actual knowledge you can use in the real world. Please, please, can Cinema Codex be next?"--Steven Soderbergh, filmmaker "Alex, Dave, Nick, and Devon do an incredible job at teaching us the basic building blocks of modern cocktails. Their unique insight gives us the tools to master the classics and create new recipes. This book is a must for all young bartenders and veterans alike."--Leo Robitschek, Bar Director, The Nomad "Cocktail Codex gives the drink enthusiast a comprehensive, fun, and complete look into the fundamentals of cocktails and the illustrations, stories, and background information give the reader a look into the world of professional drink making at its best. I strongly recommend picking this book up and flipping through the pages with your favorite cocktail in hand."--Grant Achatz, Chef/Co-Owner Alinea, Next, the Aviary, the Office
From the Publisher
Replace the high-proof whiskey in an Old-Fashioned with a larger quantity of low-proof amontillado sherry, and swap muddled orange slices for the bitters, you have a Cobbler. Amontillado sherry is a fortified wine that gives the cocktail both body and acidity, making it a strong backbone for the drink. When muddled, the orange wheels add not only a touch of sweetness from the flesh, but also some seasoning from the bitter pith and the vibrant oils in the skin. This complexity is nicely counterbalanced by the levity and bright aroma of the fresh mint garnish.
When it comes to the garnish, don’t limit yourself to the orange wedge and mint called for here; an array of seasonal fruits is traditional, so play around with whatever fruits or herbs you have on hand. It’s become an inside joke among our bartender friends to make the most ludicrous, over garnished cobbler any time one of us requests one.
In a Collins glass, muddle the orange slice and syrup. Add the sherry and stir briefly. Top with crushed ice and stir a few times to chill the cocktail. Top with more crushed ice, packing the glass fully. Garnish with the orange wedge and mint bouquet and serve with a straw.
- 3 orange slices
