    Picking up Cocktail Chemistry was actually a mistake on my part because I failed to read the subtitle. I love my copy of Liquid Intelligence, and thought that it would be rife with experiments and explanations along those lines. My taste in cookbooks runs toward readable yet informative niche areas rather than glossy contemporary compendia. I tend to keep my cookbooks forever, so I buy evergreen books that will stand the test of time rather than trendy books that won’t make sense in a few years. Picking up Cocktail Chemistry was actually a mistake on my part because I failed to read the subtitle. I love my copy of Liquid Intelligence, and thought that it would be rife with experiments and explanations along those lines. My taste in cookbooks runs toward readable yet informative niche areas rather than glossy contemporary compendia. I tend to keep my cookbooks forever, so I buy evergreen books that will stand the test of time rather than trendy books that won’t make sense in a few years. The same is true of my preferences for cocktail books. My current favorite happens to be Kara Newman’s book on equinox cocktails (Shake. Stir. Sip.) because it is so straightforward, easy to use, and timeless. Instead, Cocktail Chemistry is organized around drinks primarily drawn from 21st century pop culture, as the author didn’t start becoming a cocktail enthusiast until 2008. Fortunately, my mistake turned out in my favor. Like any decent cocktail book, the introductory material in Cocktail Chemistry starts with the cursory overview of bar tools and then progresses to a similarly brief overview of glassware. Finally, there is a section on basic cocktail components - sweet, salty, sour, bitter. I did learn a new trick in the recipe for simple syrup: adding a tablespoon of vodka to the cooled syrup will extend its shelf life in the refrigerator. And the scientific tidbit about why lemon pairs better with brown spirits and lime pairs better with white spirits was interesting as well. The obligatory section about the difference between shaking and stirring a cocktail was included in the James Bond martini chapter rather than the introductory material. After the first twenty or so pages of introductory material, the book is divided into twenty-two recipe chapters, each based on a cocktail from a well-known movie or television show. The chapters lead with a recreated version of a cocktail, which is followed by two or three more cocktails in the same “family.” The cocktail families are loosely interpreted - Manhattans, loaded cocktails, layered cocktails, hot chocolate cocktails - rather than traditionally identified by the primary base spirit. But I would assume that it would be easy to find a cocktail with a specific base spirit by referencing the Index (which was absent from the advance reader copy). Within the chapters, the recipes are mixed with explanations of why/how things work, such as how does clear ice get made, why does a clarified milk punch work, and why does a layered cocktail work. Most sections have a very breezy and informative tone; however, there were a few areas that got to feeling “smarter than thou” in their didacticism. And every so often, a recipe will also pick up an obnoxious tone of superiority as well. Overall, I recommend this book for anyone whose interests lie in the sweet spot of the Venn diagram that links 21st century pop culture and modern mixology. It’s comprehensive enough to stand alone on the bookshelf behind the bar, but niche enough to supplement a burgeoning collection of classic and contemporary cocktail books. I have yet to make any recipes from this book; the advance reader copy was so poorly formatted in certain places that it made those recipes unintelligible. However, I look forward to seeing that corrected in the final published version. I received this book as a digital advance reader copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.

It’s great for actual drink making and a perfect coffee table book too. The photographs, icons and the layout are very pleasing to the eye. This would be a perfect gift for someone I already have in mind! Thank you NetGalley and Simon Element for providing me with this ARC in exchange for my honest review.

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an early copy of this book to read. The opinions given are all my own. I have recently started mixing drinks at home, so when I saw this book I was quite intrigued by the title. I am always up for learning more about the "hows" and "whys" of how something works.

I am always up for learning more about the "hows" and "whys" of how something works. And for that, this book was great! I loved that the author talked about the interactions of ingredients and how and why certain pairings work (for example the difference between lemon juice and lime juice and how lemon pairs better with brown spirits and lime pairs better with clear spirits). Fisher also explains how to best use sweet, sour, bitters, and salt. He even provides templates and recipes for the readers to try. The introduction also explains equipment, bar tools, glasses, and how and when to use each item. This book is quite informative and would be great for those new to the cocktail world, as well as those who have been mixing for years. In this book the recipes are inspired by modern culture. For example there is a White Russian from The Big Lebowski, a martini from the James Bond movies, as well as drinks featured in Mad Men, The Simpsons, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Game of Thrones, The Office, and even Harry Potter. Now, for me, it was obvious that the author and I have different tastes in movies and TV shows as the only ones I'm familiar with was Game of Thrones and Harry Potter. However, I still enjoyed the introduction at the start of each drink, and the drinks themselves stand on their own (which is what this book is all about after all). The author also gives several different variations for each cocktail, and explains certain terminology (like the language of the martini: Dry, Dirty, etc.), which was nice. I tried the White Russian from The Big Lebowski, and also a Wisconsin Brandy Old Fashioned. I admit to being influenced into buying a few new ingredients so that I could try some of the other recipes. I mean I just HAD to try the AMF, which a variation on the Long Island Ice Tea using blue Curacao. The look of this drink is amazing, and it tasted really good, also. So while I was ever-so-slightly disappointed that I didn't get all the movie references (and that's on me), I can't hold that against this book, which provided me with a lot of great information, as well as fun new recipes.. Definitely worth the read!

Due out 17th May 2022 from Simon & Schuster on their Simon Element imprint, it's 208 pages and will be available in hardcover and ebook formats. This is a really solid bar book full of twists on traditional recipes. The recipes are arranged thematically, by reference to show/movie (including James Bond, Iron Man, The Avengers, The Simpsons, Mad Men, The Office, and so many more). There is a very short abbreviated introduction with an overview over basic bar equipment and tools, but the author does presuppose a base level of familiarity. There are lots (and lots) of very basic introductory tutorials online, so the book's emphasis is on the recipes. The photography is beautifully rendered and adds a lot to the appeal of the book. I also liked that the author does a whimsically competent job of explaining some of the science behind the interaction of the ingredients with each other (and with our bodies during and after consumption). Each of the recipes includes an introductory description and yields, ingredients in metric measurements (ml) and American standard (oz), followed by step by step instructions. Variations and alternatives are provided at the end of the recipes. These are well made cocktails which don't take themselves too seriously. Some of the blending ingredients are exotic, colorful, and may be moderately difficult and expensive to source. Some are just weird (a pea sized bit of the red stripe from Aquafresh toothpaste O.0 ). Many of the ingredients should be available at any well stocked grocery/liquor store although some might need to be sourced at specialists. Cocktails are such a civilized interlude and this book includes a solid cross section of classics and variations on the tried-and-true basics to build mixology skills and impress one's friends at the next gathering. Four and a half stars. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

Although I am not familiar with it, the book blurb says the work is based on the author’s popular YouTube channel for which it is named. The author dives in immediately with a quick summary of how he became enamored with cocktails. He also provides a brief explanation concerning the standard bar tools/materials to construct an at-home bar and to understand what is needed for many of the recipes. The glossy pictures that accompany some of the cocktails are gorgeous and high-quality, even in the digital edition of the book. I especially liked the descriptions and fun facts included as part of each cocktail recipe. The most interesting component, however, was how the author explained some of the science behind how to make certain elements of a drink, such as the blue foam to top of the infamous Black Yukon Sucker Punch cocktail from Twin Peaks.

I wasn't familiar with Nick Fisher or his youtube channel before I found this book, but will definitely check it out. This is an interesting guide book of cocktails from pop culture.

There's information throughout the book on how to properly mix drinks, using ice, incorporating citrus and more. I was expecting more recipes in this book. There are some for standard drinks like white Russians and manhattans and some for more adventurous drinks like a green Russian. Fisher includes recipes for "improved" versions of drinks that have an upgraded spin on them as well as the original drinks. Some of these drinks require more work than your average drink or some dairy, which may not be your thing. Overall it's an interesting read.

I learned a lot of new techniques and ideas. I also really enjoyed his tutorial on creating "injected" cocktails - ones in which a cocktail is injected into an ice ball. Very tempted to give that a try! I recommend this book for the cocktail connoisseur or inspired mixologist.

    Cocktail Chemistry by Nick Fisher I love experimenting with cocktails—whether spending a quiet evening at home or dining out. Although I own several bartending guides, this recipe collection is a must to add to my stockpile. With stunning photography, straightforward recipes, and drinks featured in tv shows and movies, this book is an excellent mix of old favorites and new and creative concoctions.

Clink your glasses to a Black Manhattan (my favorite) and Pumpkin Spice Cocktail and Ginger Margarita. Mix up a Spiced Eggnog or Mexican Hot Chocolate to enjoy by the fire. Beer enthusiasts will adore the Skittlebrau and Cervezaroni. The book includes cocktails I will attempt, not just admire the lovely pictures and discard the thought of making them because of complicated ingredients and steps. And who won’t devour the cocktail version—the Peanut Butter Patty Cocktail—of my favorite Girl Scout cookie? Cheers!

    The extent of my cocktail making is pouring some booze in a glass of fruit juice, so I am no expert. I wanted to read this book because of the word "chemistry" in the title. I have a background in chemistry and have worked as a chemist and chemistry teacher. There are bits of legitimate chemical principles (and other physical science) in this book.

    This book approaches cocktails from a novel viewpoint: the author begins each section with a cocktail from pop culture and provides a recipe for that drink (some are more drinkable than others!), then provides recipes for other drinks that improve on the original recipe, are riffs on the original, or share some kind of technique or component.

The photos are lovely and the format easy to follow; I also enjoyed the author's writing style. The recipes range in difficulty from simple (equal parts everything, stir or shake) to complex (i.e. special equipment required). I especially liked the Apple-tini from Scrubs, the Thanksgiving-tini from How I Met Your Mother, and the Old-Fashioned from Mad Men. I do wish the focus had been spread around a bit (there are 4 recipes inspired by The Simpsons and multiple drinks from Archer) but overall it's a great addition to cocktail book libraries.

    A good mixologist is an artist. To become one you need to learn the basic and build on them. This book is a great example of that.

However this book provides you with some lessons in just that. While not heavy on recipes, you will learn enough to start creating your own recipes and upscaling drinks that you make now.

    This was a fun “cookbook.” I’ve always loved to try new cocktails, but never had all the skills to try them at home. I think what was best about Cocktail Chemistry was the mix of humor with instruction. The reenactment recipes were usually full of hilarious ingredients (Fight Milk from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, anyone??) but I loved getting a replacement drink idea or something similar. There are varying levels of difficulty, so there is easily a drink for everyone here.

    I confess I had no knowledge of the author’s YouTube presence prior to reading this book. It’s a fun combination of cocktail basics followed by recipes for drinks in pop culture, paired with the author’s improved recipes. The photography is gorgeous. Fisher manages to make it all sound so simple—from making clear ice to making cocktails inside of ice cubes. Oh, and flaming cocktails! My home bar is ready for an upgrade. #CocktailChemistry #NetGalley

    I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. My favorite part of this was that all the drinks were inspired by tv shows and movies. It was a nice twist on the classic cocktails. I saw a couple for Iron Man and Harry Potter. I enjoyed that it told you what equipment and glassware that would be needed. It made learning the drinks easier to make. It was just fun reading through this book and learning more about these cocktails.

    I am so happy to have received this book. It is a great “coffee table” book. Left it out during a small get together with friends and everyone enjoyed looking through it. Love that the table of contents is by “shows” The pictures are amazing and it’s really informative as well! Highly recommend for anyone with a home bar, a coffee table, or an interest in mixing cocktails! Loved seeing Harry Potter included :)

    This is the perfect book to help you learn enough about mixology to start creating some crafty cocktails of your own as well as help you give old classics a new twist. I really appreciated the information that explains what works together in a cocktail and I was excited to get started with some Happy Hour at Home cocktail creations after reading Cocktail Chemistry. A great book for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of libations.

    This book was really fun for me...a very much needed respite of humor and silliness to help counteract the current hostility and bleakness of real life right now. I think my favorites were the "do NOT try this at home" recipes. The pictures were beautiful, and the directions were clear enough that even a novice like me probably wouldn't mess up TOO bad. 😉 Many thanks to NetGalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Clever is the perfect description for this book. I’m decent at making drinks at home (my grandmother taught me to make my own coffee liquor instead of baking cookies) but this book takes it to 11. I mean for the homemade pumpkin spice syrup and boozy butter beer are reasons enough to grab this book.
