A Sprited Revival, with 40 Modern Cocktails
Adam Ford
Book cover for Vermouth by Adam Ford
“Skip to the cocktail recipes and make yourself a drink, because this book will make your thirsty for more.” — Sother Teague, author of I’m Just Here for the Drinks

In an age of complex cocktails and unique beverages, the classic vermouth is often overlooked. But without vermouth, your martini is merely an iced vodka or gin. Now, once again, vermouth is being touted among the hottest trends in spirits, gracing menus in the best cocktail bars around the country. Vermouth has a rich history, deeply intertwined with that of America, and this book offers the first-ever detailed look into the background of this aromatized, fortified wine, as well as its rise, fall, and comeback in America.

With bold and delicious cocktail recipes—there are twists on the classic Boulevardier, a once-forgotten Brooklyn Cocktail, and a refreshing White Negroni—and color photographs throughout, Vermouth is a must-have book for anyone interested in drinking, or learning about, great cocktails.
