Small Business Saturday: Lou Bustamente - The Official Downton Abbey Cocktail Book (San Francisco Ferry Building Store)

Saturday, November 30, 2019 - 3:00pm

Timed to coincide with the much anticipated Downton Abbey movie, The Official Downton Abbey Cocktail Book celebrates the characters, customs, and drinking way of life at Downton Abbey.

Cocktails were introduced in the drawing rooms of Downton Abbey in the 1920s, when US prohibition inspired the insurgence and popularity of American-style bars and bartenders in Britain. This well-curated selection of recipes is organized by the rooms in the Abbey in which the drinks were served and spans everyday sips to party drinks plus hangover helpers and more. In addition to classic concoctions like a Mint Julep, Prince of Wales Punch, and Ginger Beer, this collection features character-specific variations such as Downton Heir, Turkish Attaché, The Valet, and The Chauffeur. The recipes reflect drinks concocted and served upstairs and down, as well as libations from village fairs, cocktail parties, and restaurant menus typical of the time. Features 40+ color photographs, including drink images photographed on the set of Downton Abbey.

Lou Bustamante is a bar, spirits, and cocktail writer who has done everything from recipe and product development and distillery work to bartending and teaching cocktail classes. He covers the local and national spirits scene for the San Francisco Chronicle, The Bold Italic, 7x7, Wine & Spirits Weekly, and many others.
