About the Author
From the Publisher
Made with pisco, lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white, this frothy spur off the sour family tree has roots in both America and Peru. The story goes that American-born Victor Morris moved to Peru in the early twentieth century to work on the railroads but ended up opening a bar instead. He supposedly fashioned an antecedent of what’s known as the Pisco Sour, bringing Peru’s local liquor to bear on a sour template.
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and dry shake. Add ice to the shaker and shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass. Garnish with Angostura bitters.
Simple Syrup (Makes 1 ¼ cups)
1 Cup White, Cane Or Demerara Sugar.
1 Cup Water.
Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved and remove from the heat. Allow to cool to room temperature before transferring to a jar. Simple syrup will keep in the refrigerator for 1 month.

What I don't like:
1. The Modern recipes are almost impossible to recreate. They require so many obscure ingredients. It's a little ridiculous. I found maybe two drinks in the 100 pages that I thought to be reasonable, as in I could gather the ingredients and give it a try.
2. I wish it was organized by the main spirit in the drink. For example, all the bourbon drinks together, all the rum ones etc. So if I want a rum drink I have to look through the whole book for a rum drink that looks good. I guess I could use the index but still I think it would have been so much better if the drinks were organized by type of alcohol, not only "classic" - "modern" recipes.
Overall I do like this book a lot. We've tried a good amount of the classic recipes and we've found some new favorites that I had no idea existed. So I do recommend it. But it also leaves a little to be desired.
