Everyone needs a little more disco: more fun, more swagger, more glamour, more joy! The spirit of disco is vibrant, flamboyant, and carefree. Disco drinks have begun to take centre stage on the global bar scene since the world started opening up again in 2021. And their joyous strut continues as the trend ascends. Think good times in a glass: neon-green Midori Sour, disco queen Rainbow Over Paradise, showstopping Blue Hawaii, and decadent Pink Squirrel. Mixing drinks at home has never been more popular, but the cocktail world can sometimes seem too serious: fixated on exclusive liquors, perfectly crafted ice, and the exact right stemware. Cocktail aficionados wanting to abandon the rules and enjoy drinks with the emphasis on pure fun and being fabulously good-looking will find their perfect serve in Disco Drinks. Inspired by the 1970’s party spirit and tuning into the post-pandemic bar trend for playful, rainbow-bright cocktails and fruity flavours, this book is dedicated to the pure joy of cocktails. It’s an irreverent collection of old favourites and modern classics that will put a smile on the face of even the sternest mixologist. Discover the best layering techniques; how to create fruit fans, ribbons, and twists; and expert tips on flaming garnishes and perfect pizzazz. Suitable for beginners looking for crowd-pleasing drinks, as well as expert hands in need of inspiration, this easy-to-follow guide will have you shaking and stirring and understanding the value of a strategic sprinkle of glitter.
