Join Balthazar’s Bar Manager, Brian Silva at Harry Gordon’s Bar & Kitchen, Selfridges for the launch of Balthazar’s inaugural cocktail book “Mixing in the Right Circles” on Tuesday, 6 December from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
In this book, Brian gives a comprehensive overview of bar equipment, language and measures, not to mention glassware and garnishes, before launching into the drinks that have bought him and many others so much joy over the years. Martinis & Straight Up; Whisky, Rum & On The Rocks; Long Drinks; Margaritas etc; Balthazar Specials; Collins, Sours & Fizz; After Dinner; Disco & Retro; Morning After; Brunch, No Booze & Festive are all covered in meticulous detail, with Silva’s voice recounting some of his, or indeed more general, history behind the liquor.
Tickets are £40, which includes a signed copy of the book (£20), and customers will be served canapés and three cocktails from the book throughout the evening. An in-depth Q&A with Brian Silva and the Selfridges Wine & Spirits Buying Manager, Terry Threlfall will also take place on the evening.
