When Dave Arnold mixes cocktails he doesn't just think like a bartender, he also channels his inner scientist. That's the philosophy that permeates his book Liquid Intelligence: The Art and Science of the Perfect Cocktail.
Arnold rose to fame for the unconventional cocktails he serves at Booker and Dax, a high-tech bar adjacent to David Chang's Momofuku in New York City. As expected, his book goes far beyond traditional cocktails and immerses the reader in a world of unexpected flavors and creative garnishes.
Liquid Intelligence features 120 recipes and is divided into four parts - spanning everything from basic bar equipment to new techniques like ''nitro-muddling'' and ''rapid infusions.'' There is even a section dedicated to ''vacuum-infused solids,'' a.k.a. garnishes. Readers will be taken on an exciting journey where they'll never look at ice cubes or champagne in the same way ever again.
