In A Spirited Guide to Vermouth, Jack Adair Bevan celebrates this versatile drink and its botanicals, drawing out vermouth's history and its delicate herbal flavours with recipes for cocktails, and some food to accompany them. As an award-winning food and drink writer, and one of the first restaurateurs to make his own vermouth, Jack Adair Bevan is the perfect guide through vermouth's rich history and recent resurgence. As well as Jack's original recipes, A Spirited Guide to Vermouth also contains recipes contributed from the likes of Russell Norman, Olia Hercules, Gill Meller and Jeremy Lee. With cocktails ranging from a Toasted Nut Boulevardier to a Perfect Manhattan, and from a Blood Orange Vermouth and Tonic to a Rosemary Bijou, the book also has dedicated sections exploring classics such as the Martini and the Negroni. This book will take you on a botanical journey of discovery and teach you not only how to make your own vermouth, but also how to use it in your cooking, from vermouth-braised red cabbage to Negroni Bara Brith, along with plenty of food and drink recipes to accompany the aperitivo hour.
