A Look at Fall 2015’s Best Drink Books

The year 2014 felt like a massive season for drinks books of all stripes and inclinations, from Death & Co.’s massive collection of more than 500 “modern classic” recipes to Dave Arnold’s Liquid Intelligence to Jeffrey Morgenthaler’s The Bar Book to Robert Simonson’s The Old-Fashioned to our very own Talia Baiocchi’s Sherry and so many more. At first glance, 2015, particularly this fall/winter season, appeared to be catching the publishing community exhaling from last year’s big uphill push—but on closer inspection, it may prove to be something of a sleeper. From a cocktail book hidden within a cookbook from one of the most esteemed hotel bars in the world to a newly updated Oxford Companion to Wine, here is a list of this season’s most exciting books, compiled by our editors.
