Cocktail Cookbook by Oskar Kinberg

Reflecting the trend for mixologists taking more of a culinary approach to cocktails, co-owner of Dabbous, Oskar Kinberg, has released a Cocktail Cookbook that groups recipes via a single ingredient.

From apples and cucumbers to pine, pea shoots, honey and coconut, the tome has the look and feel of a cookbook, highlighting how far the lines have blurred between food and drink and how heavily the two now borrow from one another.

While some of the cocktails feature complex ingredients, from nettle cordial to olive oil infused gin, Kinberg’s 75 recipes are easy to follow, making it possible for cocktail lovers to make bar-grade drinks at home.

Many of the cocktail names will please pun lovers – we particularly like the sound of the Basil Fawlty, Better Safe than Sorrel, Tequila Mockingbird, Currant Affairs, Shiso Fine and the Grape Gatsby.

“With a little care and sourcing in the kitchen you can make your house party a memorable one. Each cocktail has a personal memory associated with it and hopefully the reader can attach their own to them too,” says Kinberg,” who will run Oskar’s Bar in the basement of the Michelin-starred Dabbous in Fitzrovia until it shuts its doors in June.
