Mixologist: The Journal of the American Cocktail (Volume II)
The second edition of Mixologist: The Journal of the American Cocktail will be published on May 13, 2006 with eleven new articles. In this issue I have written an article on sweet and sour mix (The Definative Guide to Sweet and Sour). It is a detailed article explaining the interaction of sugars with acid and how they combine to create a flavourful taste experience. The article provides some background info on sources of acid (lemons and limes). Also, the article will introduce you to the Plonk Cocktail, a drink I created to demonstrate how sweet and sour balance each other out in wine, which is a perfect parallel to a balanced cocktail. Other contributing authors include Christine Sismondo, Robert Hess, Gary Regan, LeNell Smothers, Gwydion Stone, Audrey Saunders, Dale DeGroff, Ryan Magarian, Jared Brown, and Anistatia Miller.
