Winner of the 2014 Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Award for Best New Cocktail/Bartending Book, Beachbum Berry's Potions of the Caribbean strains five centuries of West Indian history through a cocktail shaker, serving up 77 vintage Caribbean drink recipes - 16 of them lost recipes that have never before been published anywhere in any form, and another 19 that have never been published in book form. Even more delicious are the stories of the people who created, or served, or simply drank these drinks. As a hybrid of street-smart gumshoe, anthropologist and mixologist (The Los Angeles Times), Jeff "Beachbum" Berry is uniquely qualified to tell this epic story-with-recipes, lavishly illustrated with vintage graphics and rare historical photos.

Micah LeMon had one slight problem when he started bartending nearly twenty years ago: he had no idea what he was doing. Mixology, he came to understand, is based on principles that are indispensable but not widely known. In The Imbible, LeMon shares the knowledge he has gained over two decades, so that even beginning bartenders can execute classic cocktails--and riff on those classics to create originals of their own. A good cocktail is never a random concoction. LeMon introduces readers to the principal components of every drink--spirit, sweet, and sour or bitter--and explains the role each plays in bringing balance to a beverage. Choosing two archetypes--the shaken Daiquiri and the stirred Manhattan—he shows how bartenders craft delicious variations by beginning with a good foundation and creatively substituting like ingredients. Lavishly illustrated in color and laid out in an inviting and practical way, The Imbible also provides a thorough overview of the bartender’s essential tools and techniques and includes recipes for over forty drinks--from well executed classics to original creations exclusive to this book. Both a lesson for beginners and a master class for more experienced bartenders, LeMon’s book opens the door to endless variations without losing sight of the true goal--to make a delicious cocktail.

»Josh Weil gehört zu den besten Schriftstellern seiner Generation« COLUM MCCANN Die Zwillinge Jarik und Dima sind von Geburt an unzertrennlich. Nach dem Tod des Vaters wachsen sie auf dem Bauernhof ihres Onkels auf, die Tage verbringen sie in den Kornfeldern und die Nächte im Bann der mythischen Geschichten aus dem russischen Sagenschatz. Jahre später arbeiten die Brüder Seite an Seite in der Oranzeria, dem gigantischen Gewächshaus, das sich hektarweit in alle Richtungen erstreckt. Dieses gläserne Meer wird von im Weltall schwebenden Spiegeln beleuchtet, die das Sonnenlicht rund um die Uhr auf die Erde werfen – ein künstlich geschaffener ewiger Tag, der die Produktivität der Region verdoppeln soll. Bald ist die Arbeit das Einzige, was sie verbindet: den robusten Jarik, verheiratet und Vater zweier Kinder, und Dima, den Träumer, der allein bei der Mutter lebt. Doch eine Begegnung mit dem Besitzer der Oranzeria verändert alles: Während Dima sich ambitionslos dahintreiben lässt, wird Jarik immer weiter befördert, bis sie schließlich zu Aushängeschildern gegensätzlicher Ideologien werden. ›Das gläserne Meer‹ ist ein großer Roman über den Preis unserer Träume und Ideale, hochpoetisch und angefüllt mit der Magie russischer Märchen.
