Show 87, September 6, 2014: The 12 Bottle Bar

David and Lesley Jacobs SolmonsonDavid Solmonson and Lesley Jacobs Solmonson have penned a new kind of cocktail book, The 12 Bottle Bar. Just twelve bottles create over 200 distinct and seasonal cocktails, including beer and wine cocktails. When we first interviewed the Solmonsons we ran out of time before we could discuss the clever “Acknowledgements” section of their book. We’ll resume the conversation…

“When we considered the acknowledgements, we realized that the people we had reached out to were folks with whom we would want to have a drink. So herewith, as a gesture of our gratitude, we offer our contributor’s response to the question, “If you could share a drink with anyone at any time, who would it be, where, and what would you drink?”

On Saturday, September 13th at 10:30 a.m. the Solmonsons will present “Sin and the Silver Screen: The Age of the Hollywood Nightclub.” It’s a free program in the Mark Taper Auditorium at the Los Angeles Central Library.
