Tropical Standard surveys the tropical drinks canon with the rigor and joy of jazz, offering ingenious original recipes and riffs on historic standards that stay true to the wisdom of their mixographers while adding Garret Richard's melodious innovations and Ben Schaffer's smooth phrasing. This book will be a revelation for rum lovers and readers seeking to modernize their mixing practices.--Jim Meehan, author of Meehan's Bartender Manual and The PDT Cocktail Book
Tropical Standard tracks the evolution of cocktails that evoke the warm parts of the world.

It's a dazzling work that will give you new powers, whether warm sunny days are outside your door or only in your mind.--Garrett Oliver, brewmaster of the Brooklyn Brewery and editor-in-chief of The Oxford Companion to Beer
The perfect match of word-smith with cocktail-smith. Garret Richard's recipes are brilliant in ingredient and technique, and Ben Schaffer provides provenance with wit and authority.

Honoring the past while forging the future of tropical drinks, Tropical Standard offers new techniques, new flavors, and new recipes that will stimulate the creativity of every professional or home bartender, whether they skew tropical or traditional.
