Book review: The Experimental Cocktail Club

let’s begin

In recent years there has been a rise in the number of people staying in to enjoy themselves rather than going out.

People have discovered the charm and relative cheapness of staying in and inviting friends over.

But what’s not to love?  There is no more hassle in trying to get ready and hastening out the door to sit in some over crowded, too loud pub or bar where your shoes stick to the floor and your drinks get spilled by that drunk guy falling over everyone.

Everything we went to pubs for can be transferred into the home.  Socialising, drinking and just generally having a good time can be done from the comfort of your own sofa!

And with the rise of home socialising comes the rise in home drinking. Everyone loves a tipple every once in a while and without having to shell out ridiculous prices, you can now enjoying your own drinks at home.

Cocktails throw an even more exciting twist into the ring of home drinking.  Maybe you just like to recreate your old favourites, or maybe you want to discover something new!

Whatever it may be, the home has become the site for socialising around cocktails and now, with the release of The Experimental Cocktail Club, you have 85 more opportunities to create a drink all your own!

Born from the internationally renowned cocktail bar of the same name, The Experimental Cocktail Club gives you the chance to make great drinks from your kitchen.

Gather your friends around you as you dive into the books 85 cocktail experiences, each one introducing something new and exciting to your drinks repertoire!

The Experimental Cocktail Club started off life as a New York themed bar in the heart of Paris.  Founded by childhood friends Romée de Goriainoff, Pierre-Charles Cros and Olivier Bon, who were later joined by Xavier Padovani, this is the bar that everyone wants to experience.

It has grown in global renown and now has branches in Paris, New York, London and Ibiza.  The book itself has a transatlantic twist, featuring cocktails from both America and France!

This book gives you the chance to learn from the best and create some amazing concoctions from home.

Not only will you come across new flavours and new drinks, but you’ll pick  up a little something of the art of mixology along the way.

The book also includes recipes for some more well-known and famous cocktails, such as the Negroni, Margarita, Moscow Mule and Strawberry Daiquiri.

But don’t think that these are the same old boring cocktails you can get anywhere! The Experimental Cocktail Club gives a decadent twist of their own to each and shows you how to do the same!

With what you’ll learn from the pages of this book you will no longer be restrained by what the barman tells you is good.  You’ll know what you want and how you want it!

This is the perfect investment either for your own enjoyment or for a friend.  And with so many cocktails to try out this is a definitely the gift that keeps on giving!
