Butter & ScotchAbrams Books
At Brooklyn's Butter & Scotch, whether it’s in the kitchen or behind the bar, the approach is seasonal and artisanal. At this dessert bar, everything is made by hand, and seasonal, inventive flavours are created to satisfy any sweet tooth, especially those with a pechant for spirits. In their cookbook, Butter & Scotch, Allison Kave and Keavy Landreth dish up more than seventy-five gorgeously photographed recipes for
incredible desserts, cocktails, and creations that straddle the line between those categories and encourage home bakers and bartenders to shake up their approach to booze and sweets. From Cointreau Morning Buns for breakfast to Hot Mulled Port at evening’s end, Butter & Scotch provides recipes for any time of day, and any time of the year. Stop by the bakery in the morning, and you'll find Apple Cheddar Turnovers; Sticky Buns; Demerara Grapefruit; Beermosa; Pepsi Milk; and more. The chefs also share their recipes for an afternoon snack: Earl Grey Shortbread; S'mores Bars; and Peanut Butter Pie. For after-work happy hour, try the very popular Cocktail Caramel Corns (Green Chile Margarita, Hot Toddy, or Dark & Stormy); the Negroni Pie; Maple Bacon Cupcakes; or the El Duderino Shake. And for the essential nightcap, there's always Egg Nog Pudding; the Arnold Palmer Pie Shake; The Mary Ellen (Dry Vodka Martini & Classic Hot Fudge Sundae); and many more options. And don't forget the jello shots. With flavours like Margarita, Manhattan, and Salty Dog, these shots will make any night fun.
In addition to recipes, Kave and Landreth share the basics behind their recipes—the techniques, ingredients, and essential equipment needed to make the desserts and cocktails. They also suggest pairings, offer base recipes for creative experimentation, and tell you exactly how to cook with alcohol. Butter & Scotch combines two thinks people love to do—induldge in confections and cocktails. Now, you can make these decadent desserts and drinks, and turn your own home into a dessert bar.
