The Cocktail Garden: Botanical Cocktails for Every Season (Hardcover)
The Cocktail Garden offers cocktail recipes focused around the flavors and produce found throughout the seasons, all stunningly illustrated by internationally-renowned artist Adriana Picker. From summery raspberries and rich figs to citrus and white peaches, apples and pineapples, and infusions using a riot of herbs – basil and thyme, to sage and lavender and other flavors found in the garden. There are drinks for long hot summer afternoons spent among flowers in the garden; wine spritzers for breezy evenings on the back porch; champagne cocktails for celebrations under the apple tree; nightcaps for wintry nights by the fireside; and fruity party punches for that garden party gathering with style.
