Product Details


“A love letter to the art of preparing a drink . . . the drinks wink from the pages like glittering jewels: the beautiful pink and green Hishimochi bitters and soda, a wisteria cocktail the color of the sky before rain, a vintage award-winning drink called Sky Diving which looks, delightfully, just how it sounds.”—Vanity Fair

“Momosé provides a treasure chest overflowing with tips for mere mortal bartenders to re-create her graceful style of bartending.”—Chicago Tribune

“A fascinating history of Japanese drink culture.”—Thrillist

“These modern Japanese cocktails will mentally transport you across the globe.”—Shape

“After expertly surveying the contemporary cocktail landscape of Japan and how it came to be, Julia Momosé welcomes readers behind her bar to explore the tools, techniques, and philosophy she employs to craft her groundbreaking mixed drinks.”—Jim Meehan, author of Meehan’s Bartender Manual and The PDT Cocktail Book

“Through a mix of personal history, reporting, and an impressive collection of classic and original recipes, Julia Momosé, with writing support by Emma Janzen, has synthesized the craftsmanship, the harmony, and, perhaps most important, the ethereal magnetism of the Japanese approach to cocktails. The Way of the Cocktail is itself a reflection of the Japanese way.”—Talia Baiocchi, founder and editor-in-chief of PUNCH

“Julia Momosé’s long-awaited cocktail book is the first to precisely convey why Japanese cocktail culture is so unique. With her beautiful mind, passion, and talent, Momosé gives readers a deep understanding of Japanese cocktails and will encourage and inspire Japanese bartenders as well. She reminds bartenders like ourselves of all of the special elements of our culture that we often take for granted.”—Takuo and Sumire Miyanohara, founders, owners, and bartenders of Bar Orchard Ginza
