The Art of the Shim: Low-Alcohol Cocktails to Keep You Level by Dinah Sanders, with photography by Kelly Puleio, has been nominated for the 2014 Spirited Awards’ Best New Cocktail/Bartending Book.
The Art of the Shim is the first book to focus on low-alcohol cocktails. The book features 53 recipes for cocktails that author Dinah Sanders says have “all the serious rewards of their stronger siblings” while letting the drinker experience “more drink, less drunk.”
“It is a tremendous honor to have The Art of the Shim chosen as one of the top spirits books,” said Sanders. “The work of my fellow nominees, both in the writing and other categories, has been an inspiration. It’s a great time for cocktails!”
The Spirited Awards, given each year at Tales of the Cocktail, are the spirits industry’s most prestigious honor. Tales of the Cocktail, held annually in New Orleans, is the world’s premier cocktail festival, bringing together the international spirits community for five days of what’s now, what’s new and what’s next in bartending.
Released in September 2013, The Art of the Shim continues to be widely heralded. At the end of last year, it was included in favorite drink book round-ups from Serious Eats to the Wall Street Journal. Difford's Guide, one of the world’s leading cocktail authorities, placed it among their top 30 cocktail books of all time.
