Drew Lazor and the editors of PUNCH celebrate low-proof beverages designed for leisurely sipping and socialising.
Lower proof drinks mean you can sip all day or have a few at a time without having to go down for a nap.
Driven by a renewed interest in aperitifs and the increasing availability of liqueurs and amari, these drinks provide new creative opportunities for professional bartenders and home hosts alike.
Session Cocktails explores this trend through the history and evolution of low-proof drinks, tips on building a low-ABV (alcohol by volume) bar, and more than 60 recipes appropriate for occasions ranging from brunch to the end of the night.
With contributions by some of the industry’s best-known mixologists, including Will Elliot, Natasha David, Dale DeGroff, and Leo Robitschek, the book also features low-proof versions of your favourite classic cocktails.
