Experience the rebirth of cocktails and enjoy your favorite classics as you’ve never tasted them before!
History tells us that once a cocktail achieved prominence at the bar, the impulse to invent variations has been irresistible. ReMixology is a celebration of time-honored cocktails, the fascinating evolution of their formulas, and the inspiration they provide today’s craft bartenders. This book serves as a re-introduction to ten iconic potions, from the Manhattan to the Whiskey Sour, to the Old Fashioned to the Bloody Mary and more, and explores their progression and development in cocktail culture, and showcases a range of innovative and original, yet accessible interpretations that open the door to new possibilities in drinking and entertaining. Recipes will include:
Each section will introduce a standard cocktail, offer details and insights about its genealogy, then follow with more than a dozen adaptations and variations gathered from the vintage cocktail era and from the expertise of working bartenders in progressive cocktail programs. Palate perspectives will be explored in lively headnotes, guiding the reader along the sensorial journey of 250 distinctive drinks, adapted to the home bar.
Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Good Books and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of cookbooks, including books on juicing, grilling, baking, frying, home brewing and winemaking, slow cookers, and cast iron cooking.

Our list includes French cooking, Swedish cooking, Austrian and German cooking, Cajun cooking, as well as books on jerky, canning and preserving, peanut butter, meatballs, oil and vinegar, bone broth, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
Remixology is the only cocktail book I’ve seen that’s a pleasure to read through, like a long and delicious gossip column. Its photos are beautiful. It has panache – it’s full of stories of “mixologists” around the world who invented drinks for the likes of Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. The book is organized into 10 chapters based on classic recipes (champagne cocktail, bloody mary, whiskey sour, etc.) and provides a score of variations for each. So it’s useful in a novel way — it can broaden your horizons — and it gives you a story for each variation. Includes a 6-page list of essential bartender’s tools. The authors could have added an index of the cities, establishments and mixologists in the cast of characters (spoiler: there are 7 featured watering holes in the Washington, DC region, my new home). A delight. Esther Barazzone
