(Drinking Trends) –  It’s hard to stand out from the crowd in the congested cocktail book market, but The Periodic Table Of Cocktails succeeds in doing just that. You know you have something very different in your hands when you open this handsome hardback to find a fold-out wall chart hidden within. Not only is this is a striking thing to adorn the wall of your home bar, it also gives even the most experienced bartender a fresh insight into how and why we combine ingredients the way we do.

Instead of hydrogen to helium, here you’ll find mojitos to martinis – 106 classic cocktails arranged following the logical ordering of The Periodic Table of Elements.

By day a mild-mannered research scientist, by night the intrepid Gin Monkey, Emma Stokes has released what is fast becoming a modern classic of cocktail publishing, which we highly recommend for anyone in our industry. Many modern cocktail books are very image-led, with sumptuous photography the star of the show. However, The Periodic Table Of Cocktails takes a fresh approach, grouping cocktails according to their elements, ingredients, techniques etc. Ms Stokes’ engaging tone and easy to follow recipes mean this book is not only a fun read but also a wonderfully practical recipe book. With 106 fun and easy-to-follow recipes covered, The Periodic Table Of Cocktails is a must for your home bar.

Find your favourite cocktail in the table and, in theory, you should like all the other cocktails in the same column and also the mixes immediately to the left or right, because they all share characteristics – flavours, methods and styles you’ll enjoy. Even if they use a completely different spirit or mixer to your favourite choice.

The Periodic Table Of Cocktails is available to buy via these stockists.
