The Waldorf Astoria is one of the most iconic hotels in the world. Its Peacock Alley bar is world famous and now their renowned mixologist, Frank Caiafa, has given you a helping hand with his brand new book, The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book, where you can recreate their boozy tipples.
This latest book is an updated version of The Waldorf Astoria’s original cocktail book which was published back in 1934. Although you can still find some of the classics such as the Caipiranha, the Gimlet, and the Martini, you can also find a range of modern serves, so it really does have something for everyone, especially if you’re looking to dip into, or even immerse yourself into the world of mixology.
When talking about his inspiration and ideas behind the book, Frank Caiafa says: “When writing this book I wanted to recreate what we were able to accomplish in Peacock Alley – bringing the legend of the bar into the 21st century, and presenting a modern day representation of the classic recipes included in Crockett’s books. My goal was to include the long and storied history of Waldorf Astoria New York and its cocktails, and present them in an approachable way, highlighting early recipes of the late 19th and early 20th centuries combined with more traditional selections and current menu offerings.”
