Last year, we were in Las Vegas and had the most amazing Bloody Mary at the Bond Bar at The Cosmopolitan Hotel. It was completely different than any we had ever tried, while still definitely a Bloody Mary. In fact, every drink on the menu was a twist on a classic, or something completely new. We were intrigued & struck up a conversation with the bartender – excuse us – mixologist! He told us the secret to making a great cocktail is The Flavor Bible, which we first showed you here. Well, that day changed our lives – in a minor, but very fun way! As soon as we returned to Dallas we bought The Flavor Bible and started concocting away. It’s not just great for coming up with cocktail recipes, but so useful when coming up with a menu and knowing what ingredients and spices complement each other or bring out flavors that you wouldn’t notice otherwise. We’re constantly referring to it & think it’s a great addition to your kitchen, if you like to cook – or experiment with cocktails!
