If you browse the shelves in our culinary section, maybe the spine of the book that reads "Death & Co", in scrolling silver text on a black cover, caught your eye. From just the spine, you might think we had accidentally mis-shelved a book about death customs or cemeteries. However, the full cover reveals "Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails." Intrigued?
Death & Co is a "must visit" destination for serious cocktail enthusiasts who want to sample the most inventive and creative cocktails being crafted today. While New York, NY might not be a short drive from St. Louis, you may experience some of these cocktails in your own home, courtesy of this beautiful book. In its pages you'll discover not only recipes for a Blazing Saddle, a Flor de Jerez, and a Widow's Laurel, but you'll learn about theory and philosophy of drink making, step-by-step instructions of techniques, and more. There's even a section about measuring and pouring devices, so you can learn the difference between an ice pick and a wood chisel. if you didn't already know, that is.
