September 4th 2019 at 7 pm at the bookshop «Never Stop Reading» (Spiegelgasse 18 / Untere Zäune, 8001 Zürich). Starting at 9 pm, four of the portrayed bartenders from «Mixing Cosmopolitans» will be at work in the Tales Bar (Selnaustrasse 29, 8001 Zurich).
Daniel Staub, the creative mind behind several bars and speakeasies in Zurich and author of the bartending blog The Pouring Tales is on a mission to find and portray the most innovative and passionate bartenders from all across the globe — the true artists of modern mixology. Over the past few years, he has visited countless bars all around the world and formed friendships with many of the talented individuals who work there. Resulting from his extensive travels and research into the global nightlife scene, «Mixing Cosmopolitans» is a travel diary, a bar guide, and a recipe book all in one. Yet in the spotlight, first and foremost, are the people who breathe new, often unconventional, life into the art of hospitality and who in this book share their own personal path to finding their passion in bartending. Presenting twenty-one personal, beautifully illustrated portraits of bartenders and their bars along with the recipes for their signature cocktails, «Mixing Cosmopolitans» offers a compelling look into a constantly evolving scene and art form.
