The product of a teetotaling home, Vince Keenan didn’t have his first serious drink until he was in his thirties. But when he fell, he fell hard. And started writing about it. The result is a love letter to libations and a celebration of the joys of a good barroom.
In bright and entertaining style, Keenan chronicles a year’s worth of cocktails. Each week brings a new beverage, prepared at home in a modestly stocked bar. He makes mistakes, finds concoctions he doesn’t care for, perfects his technique. Above all, he keeps experimenting.
While telling the story of how discovering cocktails broadened his world, Keenan also delves into the stories behind each drink, introducing a host of characters from bartenders past and present to a lazy lightweight boxer, a two-fisted screenwriter, and a suicidal Olympic swordsman.
Written with passion and curiosity, Down the Hatch is a book for the cocktail enthusiast and amateur alike.
