Cocktails have always had a stronghold in America’s Dairyland. This highly illustrated volume uncovers the true stories behind the state’s obsession with brandy, ice cream drinks, and a smorgasbord of garnishes.
Beyond delving into mythic origins of several classic creations, Jeanette Hurt introduces a new generation of cocktails that offer a spin on standard concoctions. She explores the state’s unique farm-to-table ethos influenced by an abundance of locally sourced ingredients. Also included are a wealth of interviews with notable mixologists, sharing numerous favorite recipes for specialty pick-me-ups that connoisseurs and home bartenders alike will be clamoring to try. A definitive account of the beverages we love, Wisconsin Cocktails insists we order our Old Fashioneds the right way—with brandy.
