Sick of ordering the same vodka sodas or G&Ts? You’re in luck. Around The World in 80 Cocktails gives you all the #inspo you need to spice up your drink order.

 

Covering recipes from the world over, Around the World in 80 Cocktails celebrates art of the cocktail through eighty different iconic drinks – each of which has its own story to tell. Bartender and writer Chad Parkhill takes you on a tour of the places that have shaped the history of the cocktail from its birth to the present day, with recipes so you can follow along at home.

 

You’ll learn about the surprising military history behind the bubbly, vivacious Venetian Spritz; how the G&T moved from India to England (and why the best in the world are now made in Spain); and how France’s Burgundy region turned tragedy into triumph with the Kir. Accompanied by gorgeous vintage-style illustrations that evoke antique travel posters, these stories and recipes are an ode to the joys of travel, history, and drinking.

 

The book is out now in all good bookstores, so now you have no excuse for boring drinks!
