Product Details


“When it comes to my home bar, I keep things simple. I’ve got my basic spirits, along with just enough bottles to make me and my wife’s favorite drinks. This makes many modern cocktail recipes troublesome. The One-Bottle Cocktail solves my problem: it’s a book that will at once simplify your entertaining while simultaneously making it so much more rewarding.” –-J. Kenji López-Alt, author of The Food Lab
“Maggie proves that delicious cocktails don’t have to be complicated. These are professional-grade tricks that can help even the most entry-level home bartender put a culinary cocktail in everyone’s hand.” –Jeffrey Morgenthaler, author of The Bar Book
“These recipes bring two of my favorite food trends into the world of drinking: simplicity and seasonality. If I want a drink that requires twelve obscure spirits, I’ll order it at a bar. This book is coming with me to the farmers’ market.” –Ari Shapiro, host of NPR’s All Things Considered

The One-Bottle Cocktail makes it easy to figure out how to polish off that lingering liter of rum and is guaranteed to expand your cocktail repertoire for your go-to bottle. It does so by forging surprising, nuanced, eminently sippable flavors from commonplace liquors and fresh fruits, herbs, and other seasonal ingredients, as well as vinegars, spices, and sodas. This is the kind of book that every home cocktail-maker should keep on their shelf.” — Niki Achitoff-Gray, Serious Eats
“Now, thanks to Hoffman, you even if your liquor cabinet and your bank account are nearly empty, you can mix a damn good drink.” –

Praise for Maggie Hoffman:

“I’m often asked for advice on stocking your home bar, and I have a kindred spirit in Maggie Hoffman, who preaches the gospel of building it one bottle at a time. Hoffman has been on the frontline of the modern craft cocktail movement, serving as a trusted, expert resource who helped demystify the often confusing and complicated world of spirits, giving at-home cocktail aficionados the inspiration to take their game to the next level.” –-Brad Thomas Parsons, author of Bitters and Amaro

“Not knowing what cocktail to make at home is a problem I run into a lot, and if it were socially acceptable, Maggie Hoffman would be the person I’d text every time I needed saving from another boring G&T. She has an excellent palate and knows her ingredients, but more than that, she also knows what ‘normal’ people have in their kitchens and that cocktails don’t need to be anything intimidating.” –Anna Roth, San Francisco Chronicle and contributor
