Food Love: Cocktails from “Shake”

Shelby here!  I bought the book Shake for Zach for Christmas and he has become a cocktail connoisseur!  The book starts with a list of the authors’ preferred spirits and tools to stock your bar like a professional hipster mixologist.  It also talks about the importance of good ingredients – like raw sugar cubes and DIY-dried rosemary.  There is an entire section on the type of ice that should be used for certain drinks.

The cocktail recipe book is organized by season, so we have only been making the winter cocktails – the Rye Old Fashioned

And my personal favorite, the Sage Advice (sage liquor, fresh grapefruit juice, simple syrup, grapefruit zest, topped with Spanish cava and sage leaves in a cute coupe glass)
