The December issue of Australian Bartender is out now for iOS devices — click here to download the Bartender app and get your copy on iPhone and iPad.
The December issue is our Travel Issue; inside we’ve taken a look at some bartender bucket list cities and events, like Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans and Bar Convent Berlin; there’s the must-do bars to visit in Singapore, and a look at road tripping around Los Angeles and San Francisco.
We’ve got a couple of excerpts from two just-released cocktail books, too. Read up on the fabled Milk & Honey’s comp protocol, penned by the late Sasha Petraske himself; and learn what you need to know about ice thanks to the passage pulled from the excellent A Spot At The Bar, The Everleigh’s cocktail book from Michael Madrusan and Zara Young.
We also take a look at some aperitif cocktails, take an in-depth look at Merivale’s latest bar, Charlie Parker’s, get tips for creating drinks with Thai flavours from James Connolly of Long Chim, and profile The Lobo Plantation;s Mary White and Golden State Hotel’s Kevin Peters.
