Joy Of Cooking Update: Wine and Beer Cocktails

Posted by Trott

Skimming the Wine and Beer Cocktails in the 2006 Joy Of Cooking, you might conclude that the only really interesting cocktail listed is the Champagne Cocktail #1 (Champagne, brandy, simple syrup, yellow Chartreuse, orange bitters). You would be absolutely correct. That was an interesting, complex, and rewarding concoction, at least compared to the White Wine Spritzer (Riesling and club soda) and the Shandy (lager, lemon-lime soda, and a lime wedge).

Actually, the White Wine Spritzer was just fine—perfectly refreshing and all that, but obviously from the ingredients, nothing that you need a cookbook's help with.

Now we enter truly exciting territory: Gin Cocktails!
