60 wonderful whisky and bourbon cocktails
Oaky, smoky, young or old, whisky is a versatile and highly spirited spirit that has been the backbone of the classic cocktail since the old-fashioned was new.

This beautifully illustrated book will introduce you to the wider world of malts, and showcase the true potential of whisky and bourbon.
In Whisky Made Me Do It, award-winning mixologist and Certified Specialist of Spirits, Lance Mayhew explains everything you need to know: how to choose the right type, mix the ultimate Manhattan and find the perfect cocktail for any occasion.
From grown-up scotch and sodas, celebratory mint juleps, or playful picklebacks, there are recipes here for any mood, any event, and any whisky-drinker.
