Brown Booze is a unique cocktail recipe book, which explains how to maximise the number of cocktails you can make using the bottles of brown spirits in your drinks cabinet. By substituting just one or two ingredients, you will learn how to make a whole range of different drinks. Take, for example, a simple St Lawrence cocktail, made from bourbon, maple syrup, and lemon juice. By substituting the apple brandy for bourbon you now have an Applejack Rabbit, a great cocktail with a completely different flavour to the St Lawrence. Or there's the classic Manhattan recipe, using bourbon, vermouth and bitters, that can become a completely new drink, the Harvard, by replacing the whisky with cognac. Using this formula and a series of helpful infographics, you'll see how a quick trip round the fruit and veg aisle of your local supermarket can transform the number of cocktails you can make, and at a really reasonable price, too. So if you're having a party, get the guests to bring you just five bottles of alcohol and by following the advice in Brown Booze you'll be able to make over 70 different drinks.
