3 Ingredient Cocktails: An Opinionated Guide to the Most Enduring Drinks in the Cocktail Canon – Robert Simonson

Breaking cocktail mixology down to its most basic components, this book, from New York Times journalist and cocktail historian Robert Simonson, is a revelation.

For anyone that has thought about hosting a cocktail party, only to be put off by a long list of spirits, mixers and bitters needed to pull off only a handful of favourites, this is for you.

Simonson’s collection of 75 recipes ranges is split into five categories: Old-fashioned cocktails; improved cocktails; sours; highballs; and other.

From the historic to the contemporary, Simonson covers with bases with advice on the classics, which include the Martini, Rob Roy and Negroni, to the Grasshopper, White Russian and Brandy Alexander.
