“In the cocktail movement, most cocktail books have ignored the whiskey drinker’s palate, making us flip through pages of vodka, gin, and rum recipes before getting to a good whiskey recipe. In Whiskey Cocktails, Warren Bobrow did us all a favor. He makes cocktails with Scotch, Irish whiskey, Canadian whiskey, bourbon, Tennessee whiskey and a few others. Bobrow freshens up classic cocktail recipes and offers a few recipes that will surely become classics themselves. Finally, we, whiskey drinkers, have our own cocktail book to cherish. Thanks, Warren, for skipping all those other spirits. Whiskey Cocktails treats whiskey as the rightful king it is. – Fred Minnick, author of Whiskey Women: The Untold Story of How Women Saved Bourbon, Scotch & Irish Whiskey
“Warren has done it again. Whiskey Cocktails is a sublime journey of the senses with mouthwatering recipes and exquisite photography. Warren leads you on a historic and personal tour and keeps you reeled in with his graceful prose that emanates from the heart. An ardent sensualist, he approaches cocktails in the way an untarnished artist approaches the canvas–guileless, ingenious, and heartfelt. His cocktail compositions are true works of art that will stand the test of time. His commitment to sourcing unique, refreshing, quality ingredients to enhance his cocktails is second to none and it shows in the elaborate, delectable concoctions he wields.” – Robert Sickler, Master of Whisky
“Before I made the drinks, I could already taste them. Warren’s ability to articulate the subtlety of the flavors in his recipes makes possible tasting by reading.” – Allison Goldberg, founder, Fruitations Craft Soda & Cocktail Mixers
“Warren Bobrow uses his great knowledge of mixing flavors to provide a book of extraordinary whiskey cocktails that will be enjoyed by all.” – Michael Veach, bourbon historian, The Filson Historical Society (Louisville, KY)
