Craft Cocktails at Home: Offbeat Techniques, Contemporary Crowd-Pleasers, and Classics Hacked with Science Review
Craft Cocktails at Home: Offbeat Techniques, Contemporary Crowd-Pleasers, and Classics Hacked with Science by Kevin Liu is written in a fun and humorous way; it contains a little bit of everything - recipes, trivia and history. For those who want to understand the scientific processes and principles underlying such basic cocktailing concepts as dilution, citrus freshness, infusion, and acidity, there is no better place to start. It's a unique journey as you learn how to make some of the world's most innovative and delicious cocktails. Craft Cocktails at Home is a great addition to my culinary cookbook collection.
After high school, Kevin Liu received a bachelor's in electrical engineering and a master's from MIT, but it wasn't until he finally finished going to school that he realized how cool science is. He started writing about food and science online at ScienceFare.org in 2011, where his current "research" interest is the science of cocktails.
Liu has collected a huge body of knowledge through experiments and research which he shares in Craft Cocktails at Home in a style that's clear, amusing, and injected with self-deprecating asides. Kevin demystifies the world of cocktails and answers the more detailed concoction questions of geeks.
This is not a cocktail guide; instead it contains recipes for things like amazing tasting tap water, clear ice and methods for home made bitters, with explanations on the science behind that makes them work. The format of Craft Cocktails at Home enables you to flip it open to whatever page you want whenever you have a few spare moments, and you're bound to find something fun and inspiring! Craft Cocktails at Home is a must-have guide for novices and professionals alike.
