Session Cocktails introduces you to a new cannon of low-proof cocktails designed for "sessionability"- meaning you can have a few at a time without needing a nap. Driven by spirits like sherry, amaro, vermouth, and liqueurs, session drinks are full of surprising flavors and perfect for social gatherings. Contributed by some of the industry's best-known and most inventive mixologists, more than fifty recipes include the Rebujito (sherry, mint, lemon, lime), Hop Skip Jump (Cynar, Punt e Mes, lemon, beer), Far East Side (sake, St-Germain, tequila, lemon) and PUNCH's own house frosé. Session Cocktails also explores the history and evolution of low-proof drinks, and offers tips on stocking your low-ABV bar, re-creating your favorite classic cocktails at low proof, and batching drinks for a crowd.
