Lift the glass and breathe in, savoring the delicate aromas of pear and rosemary before you take a sip of your ice-cold martini. Or maybe it’s the Honeybee, a blend of tequila, grapefruit juice, and blue agave perfect for a hot summer day, or perhaps you’ve chosen to settle in beside the fire on a snowy night with the maple-infused Cabin Fever.
These are cocktails all grown up and gone more glam than ever, with a sophisticated contemporary twist. Created and refined by Peaches and Jeffrey Paige at their renowned restaurant in Manchester, New Hampshire, they are just a few of the tantalizing concoctions shared in the pages of Cotton Cocktails. Color photographs so vivid you feel you could lift the glass from the page will send you straight to the recipes, which come with a friendly running commentary about the best local ingredients, ideal ways to prepare them, and stories from Cotton.
So open, read, enjoy—you’re only a cocktail shaker away from a memorable evening of fabulous drinks with friends.
