According to Bittered Sling co-founder Mote:

“…in my first book, I’m inviting readers and home bartenders to pack their suitcases and come with me on an international cocktail adventure. In the book, once you’ve gotten a handle on the basics of bartending and gathered your cocktail shaker along with a few other pieces of equipment, you’ll be raising your glass with me in no time. 

“My recipes are organized by their star ingredients, such as agave, gin, whiskey, rum, vodka, and more. Every drink is given its own designation of standard, mid, low, or zero proof, and you’ll find a whole chapter on zero-proof cocktails because I’m passionate that all drinks should be prepared with care, whether they include alcohol or not. 

“Once you’ve narrowed down the base that you’re in the mood for, let a great story & cocktail continue to guide you.
