Brad Thomas Parsons’ AMARO at AJC Decatur Book Festival

Wednesday September 23, 2020 06:00 pm EDT
Cost: Free
Brad Thomas Parsons joins us to share the magical world of mixology and cocktails, presenting two books, AMARO: The Spirited World of Bittersweet, Herbal Liqueurs with Cocktails, Recipes and Formulas and his latest title, Last Call: Bartenders on Their Final Drink and the Wisdom and Rituals of Closing Time. In Last Call, Parsons asks the question “What is the last drink you would want to have before you die?” and gathers the intriguing responses from a diverse range of bartenders around the country. The resulting interviews and essays reveal a personal portrait of some of the country’s top bartenders and their favorite drinks, while thirty-five cocktail recipes and stunning photography make this a keepsake for barflies and cocktail enthusiasts of all stripes. Interviewed by Mike Jordan, an Atlanta-based journalist, Parsons takes us through the history of drink mixing, as well as the experiences of bartenders across the country.
