Dave Stolte launched his book, Home Bar Basics (and not-so-basics), at 320 Main last Monday. Part of the festivities were $5 cocktails including egg nog, Manhattan and Mint Juleps.
I haven’t had a chance to read through all the recipes yet but I love the compact design. It is a great book for the budding bartender as well as a handy reference guide for those behind the stick. It’s great that it is spiral-bound so it’ll lay flat when you start
pounding out drinks like a maniac making cocktails. Buy a few to go around.
Plus, I love how it’s illustrated with these adorable “characters.” Dave’s an illustrator and designer so the book looks great.
I got a raffle ticket as part of the door fee (which went to charity) but I suppose I should have bought more raffle tickets. The prizes looked amazing including these two Moscow Mule mugs filled with drink tickets to be used at 320 Main.
Is Vodka Dead? Well, find out what Dave says in the book.
I got there too late to really try the food so I’ll have to go back to 320 Main some other time to try the cocktails from their list and food.
