In order to bring you the best places in Paris and around the world to have a French cocktail I went to 55 bars in just 6 weeks earlier this year. I swirled and tasted countless cocktails, interviewed some of the world’s best bartenders and mixologists and coaxed recipes out of them just for you.

This is the first ever Recipe Book that Explores the Dynamic New Craft Cocktail Movement in Paris!

France has a cocktail culture that goes back centuries—and now is on the cutting edge of the artisianal cocktail movement. For the first time ever, Paris Cocktails transports you to the heart of this trendsetting region with more than 100 artful cocktail recipes. Paris Cocktails also takes you to 100 of the best French bars in Paris and around the world. Evocative photos, scene-setting bar descriptions, mixologist insights, soiree planning themes, and shopping tips make this the perfect guide to the art of French drinking.
