Topping & Company Booksellers of Bath, York Street, Bath, Somerset BA1 1NG
An Evening of Cocktail Tastings with the multi-award-winning drinks writer and TV presenter, Olly Smith.
With Olly's charm, insider knowledge and deft way with flavour combinations, you will be transported to a beautiful beach or snowy peak, perfectly mixed drink in hand.
In his new World Cocktail Atlas Olly serves up the best cocktail recipes the world has to offer. From the prohibition-inspired speakeasy drinks of the US to the art of the Japanese Izakaya, Italian spritzes and amaro, Mexican margaritas, Korean soju sippers, to Singapore slings and West Indian rum punches, every country has its own signature concoctions.
Arranged by region, the recipes take you on a global tour: in Europe sip on a White Negroni or a Greek Sidecar. Travel the length and breadth of the Americas with a Reverse Manhattan, Mezcal Paloma and Tiki Espressotini. Journey around East and Southeast Asia with a Tokyo Mary or Soju Orange Seoul. Cool down with a Moroccan Mint Orange Julep or Malawi Shandy. And evoke memories of sun-kissed holidays with an Aussie Beachcomber, Fijian Flirt and Tahitian Vanilla Punch.
Olly Smith writes a weekly column for the Daily Mail's Weekend magazine and heads up six Glass House wine bars on board P&O Cruises. He presents his popular podcast A Glass With..., interviewing international guests ranging from P!NK to Kylie Minogue, and appears regularly as wine expert on BBC1's Saturday Kitchen. Olly is the author of six books including Home Cocktail Bible.
