Mixing in the Right Circles by Brian Silva

Cocktail maestro Brian Silva, a legend on the London circuit currently found behind the bar at Bathazar in Covent Garden, has penned a tome about his time in the trade. Mixing in the Right Circles shines a light on the classic cocktails Silva specialises in, and how, with the right spirits, shaker, glassware and garnishes, they can be recreated at home.

Silva also tells stories about the drinks that have bought him joy over the years. Each of the chapters focuses on a different style of cocktail, from Martinis and Margaritas to sours, sparkling cocktails and after dinner drinks, charting the history of each.

Having worked in the drinks industry for 30 years, including head bartender stints at The Connaught and Rules – London’s oldest restaurant – Silver’s book is full of amusing anecdotes. “I’ve always believed that the first duty of a good cocktail maker is to make balanced drinks,” he says.
