Editorial Reviews

Review

“The Cocktail Chronicles is not just an engaging inquiry to the classics, but a unique eyewitness account of the contemporary craft-cocktail revolution. It’s a lot to drink in, but Paul mixes it perfectly and serves it with a smile.” ―Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, author of Potions of the Caribbean

“The Cocktail Chronicles blog was such a big part of my education. This book is long overdue, and will be required reading for the next generation of bartenders.” ―Jeffrey Morgenthaler, bar manager at Clyde Common (Portland, Oregon) and author of The Bar Book: Elements of Cocktail Technique

“The Cocktail Chronicles is an insider’s guide to the classic and modern drinks, spirits, bars, and bartenders driving the current cocktail renaissance, from a writer who has been on its front lines for the past decade.” ―Camper English, cocktail journalist and publisher of Alcademics.com

“It’s not often that a new cocktail book holds my attention, but I wasn’t surprised that Paul’s did. The Cocktail Chronicles will serve as a wonderful homage to what is perhaps one of the most pivotal times in the history of cocktails.” ―Audrey Saunders, owner of Pegu Club, New York City

"Paul Clarke began writing about the cocktail renaissance when it was still wishful thinking, and has been covering it ever since. I challenge anybody to find somebody who knows it better or, just as important, somebody who can explain it more clearly or genially. He is the ideal guide." ― David Wondrich, author of Imbibe! and Punch; Esquire drinks correspondent

“Whether celebrating the rebirth of The Last Word or comparing an aperitif to Boom Boom Mancini, The Cocktail Chronicles is a decade-in-the-making document of Paul Clarke at his finest. He nails that sweet spot of drinks writing, appealing to veteran bartenders and cocktail geeks while expertly demystifying matters for those eager to learn more.” ―Brad Thomas Parsons, author of Bitters: A Spirited History of a Classic Cure-All

“The most indispensable cocktail guide in years. Paul Clarke’s serious authority never gets in the way of his pleasure. This is the guy you want behind the bar with you." ––Jonathan Miles, former New York Times cocktail columnist

“This book is not only valuable, it's necessary. And while it’s replete with cocktails, at Paul Clarke's hand, the writing always wins.” ―Ted Haigh, “Dr. Cocktail,” author of Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails

“Few people have followed the cocktail revolution as closely as Paul Clarke. And to follow his journey―and look at where it all began, where it’s been, and where we’ve ended up―there’s no more entertaining way of discovering all the details than by reading this fine tome.” ―gaz regan, author of The Joy of Mixology

From the Back Cover

The Cocktail Chronicles is mixology for the masses. Written by Paul Clarke, the executive editor of Imbibe, The Cocktail Cocktails is an enlightening field guide to the cocktail renaissance that’s never overwhelming and always welcoming. It’s not a lab manual for taking the cocktail experience to a molecular level; nor is it an historical thesis tracing the origins of the drinks we enjoy today. Instead, The Cocktail Chronciles is a collection of approachable and easily replicable drinks that all share the same thing: a common deliciousness and a key role―fully explained in Clarke’s engaging manner―in the ongoing and thriving cocktail renaissance. Informative, fascinating, and bound by Clarke’s belief that cocktails should be fun, The Cocktail Chronicles celebrates the breadth of the cocktail renaissance and it’s continuing revolution without making things overly complex or precious. Life’s too complicated; thanks to The Cocktail Chronicles, a good drink doesn’t need to be.
