He calls himself “The Cocktail Whisperer,” but Warren Bobrow speaks volumes through his books and talks on the craft of the cocktail. Since we met him several years ago at the start of his cocktail writing career, Warren has established himself as the leading authority on the unique genre of cocktail history in the country.
Warren’s third book, Bitters and Shrub Syrup Cocktails, will be released in May. Part modern recipe book and part historical exposé, Bitters and Shrub Syrup Cocktails explores the and healing benefits of apothecary bitters and the satiating, stimulating aspects of shrubs- how they originated and how to make them at home (not hard), showing an array of different cocktails that can be made with them.
Warren’s first book Apothecary Cocktails, took us into the history of medicinal mixology from curative cocktails and painkilling libations to restorative elixirs. For centuries healers turned to natural ingredients from the garden combined with distilled alcohol to treat myriad conditions. In Whiskey Cocktails, his second book Warren focuses on the different incarnations of the world’s most respected spirit and the cocktails it made famous.
