WHY TURN ON, TUNE IN, DRINK UP

I know I’m not alone in feeling a tingle of excitement when sashaying up to the saloon and ordering a Sazerac. Cocktail culture is quickly overtaking the food craze; creative connoisseurs are emerging and we are the lucky ones. These masterminds of mixology deserve not only our respect, but also our individual attention.

A Lush Life Manual is the place to discover why an old-fashioned is the drink of choice, who is making their own bitters and how ice, or lack there of, is transforming the cocktails you drink – all this from the modern day alchemists behind the bars around the world.
