Want to drink less alcohol and have more fun? Embrace the lower-proof lifestyle with these 75 cocktails.
If your cocktail hour usually includes a martini or a manhattan, you may equate lower alcohol options with a dreaded light beer. But it doesn’t need to be that way! In this revolutionary new book, Jules Aron reveals the secret behind low-proof libations that satisfy all your senses without knocking you off your feet. By building your drinks with a delicious array of lower-proof alcohols, such as amari, sherry, herbal liqueurs, and shochu, you’ll balance out the high-proof components like gin and tequila. These tricks can also apply to traditionally lighter drinks, too. Aron embraces garden-to-glass trends with spice-infused vodka, sweet-and-sour shrubs, and other, more health-conscious drinks.
Most experts agree that drinking less booze is better for your health. Cutting back on alcohol has been shown to help with weight loss, libido, and general well-being. With beautiful photography and contributions from well-known mixologists, this is a distinctive addition to the low-proof library.
