Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, of the U.K. company Bompas & Parr, take on cocktails with their own brand of spectacle and wit. This is no ordinary recipe book, and the reader may be alarmed at just how far this duo is willing to push the envelope. Some drinks include highly unusual ingredients, such as ether, gold leaf, methyl cellulose gel, and tobacco. Afterall, this is the team that created a vapor cloud of gin and tonic that could inebriate those that breathed it, and flooded a London estate with four metric tons of punch for guests to raft atop to drink. For the inexperienced, much of this book may be intimidating, but those seeking the innovative and bizarre will find plenty to delight. Some of this work may seem controversial to less tolerant readers. Several drinks incorporate a product called Buckfast Tonic Wine, which has stirred debate in Britain over alleged links to anti-social behavior and crime (Americans, think of it as a more potent version of Four Loko). Bompas and Parr even offer a recipe to recreate Buckfast at home. Another section of the book provides recipes for drinks to offer to children, though the reader should keep in mind that the legal drinking age in the U.K., with parental consent, is five years. The measures in the recipes are often presented in milliliters and fluid ounces (and occasionally larger units), yet there appears to be some discrepancy in the conversions. At times this may be due to a difference in meaning (U.S. gallon vs. Imperial gallon, for example), but at other times it just seems like inaccurate math. Fortunately, Bompas and Parr usually give their proportions in "parts" rather than distinct measures. Altogether, this is a terrific look at the potential of creativity in the cocktail world, exploring new frontiers in ingredients and techniques.Read more ›
