Apéritif - Cocktail Hour the French Way: a Recipe Book


By Rebekah Peppler · 2018

Grab a light drink and a bite, and enjoy cocktail hour, the French way.

Keeping true to the apéritif tradition, you'll find cocktail recipes that use lighter, low-alcohol spirits, fortified wines, and bitter liqueurs. The impressive drinks have influences from both Old World and New, but are always low fuss and served barely embellished--an easy feat to pull off for the relaxed host at home.

"With witty and honest prose and stunning photography, this book is one to keep out on the coffee table (or bar cart)."--Food & Wine, "Best Cocktail Books of Fall 2018"

"Step aside, Italian aperitivo. This book moves over into the equally stylish and luxurious territory of the French cocktail hour, providing recipes for classic and contemporary before-dinner French cocktails, along with light bites."--Epicurious
