"Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails" in Spirits & Cocktails Posted February 20, 2017 On 2/7/2017 at 9:24 AM, sbumgarner said: I don't think any of these books are written under the assumption that all the recipes can be replicated at any given time by any one person, but certainly there are plenty of drinks in this book that can be replicated for far less than thousands of dollars in booze. That is exactly my point...some might think that this book is a recipe book. I suppose in some respects it is exactly that. But IMHO it is *much* more useful as a guide with which to experiment and create your own concoctions. That isn't to say that the recipes aren't fantastic, they are and I use them often. But I have had a lot more fun reading their explanations on *why* they do the things they do and *why* they use the ingredients they do.
