Synopsis: ALCHEMY IN A GLASS: HANDCRAFTED COCKTAIL

Alchemy in a Glass shows readers how to create stunning transformations of spirits and ingredients at home, and helps them understand the art of balancing flavours, mixers, and spirits with the guidance of cocktail craftsman, Greg Seider. Seider, who has created cocktail programs for top New York City restaurants as well as running the acclaimed Summit Bar in the East Village, has a culinary background, and approaches cocktail creation as the art of understanding how different flavours work together and develop over the course of a drink. He prizes the use of fresh, seasonal, and homemade ingredients, which he uses to infuse and garnish his drinks. Drawing on Seider's experience developing cocktail programs for acclaimed chefs such as Thomas Keller and Eric Ripert, this book will go beyond recipes to help readers understand how flavours work in a drink, giving them the why as well as the how. Taking each cocktail as a journey for the palette, Seider shares recipes for more than fifty original cocktails, punches, and classics with a twist, as well as recipes for bitters, garnishes, infusions and elixirs that make his drinks the exciting, unique creations that they are. Perfect for food lovers and a must for aspiring and experienced home mixologists, this book is an inspiring companion for anyone who likes to taste.

about author

If you’ve had a cocktail in the greater metropolitan area in the past decade, there’s a good chance you’ve come into contact—directly or indirectly—with Greg Seider. Seider has worked the New York mixology scene for more than 12 years, through the formative stages of its rapidly growing cocktail culture to its current state of diversity and maturity. And even with so much experience behind him, Seider is still tackling new projects, and shaking and stirring his way into the next era of cocktail culture.

Seider’s innovative cocktails first began to draw a crowd at Mercer Kitchen, where he collaborated with chefs and pastry chefs to create his menu, leading to tea- and herb-infused cocktails that challenged traditional boundaries between the bar and kitchen. Since then, Seider has refined his techniques and played with flavor profiles in notable New York culinary and cocktail institutions like Asia de Cuba, Lot 61, Robert DeNiro’s Hudson Lounge, and Minetta Tavern. He also ran the beverage program at the world famous dinner theater The Box and created a specialized cocktail program for The Standard Hotel in Miami Beach.

But Seider’s experience, and the many accolades that have poured in along the way, haven’t quelled his ambitions. His projects are numerous, and they seem to keep popping up. Beyond competing in international cocktail competitions (he won the 2009 Flor de Caña competition and was one of three finalists in New Zealand’s 42 Below Cocktail World Cup) Seider is contributing new establishments to New York’s bustling mixology scene.
