The Infused Cocktail Handbook: The Essential Guide to Creating Your Own Signature Spirits, Blends, and Infusions
Kurt Maitland


Create your own signature cocktails with this essential recipe book for homemade blends and alcohol infusions.

The Infused Cocktail Handbook is the essential guide to homemade blends and infusions. The illustrated recipes explain which ingredients and flavors go best when infusing vodka, gin, tequila, whiskey, rum, and sherry. Make an infused simple syrup or try out a shrub and spice up your next party!

You’ll find a range of globetrotting flavor profiles such as:

  • Earl Gray tea (great for a gin infusion)
  • Lemongrass
  • Cardamom
  • Walnuts
  • Gummy bears
  • Bacon (who doesn’t love bacon?)

Craft delicious libations using The Infused Cocktail Handbook as your starting point to infuse liquors with new flavors that you can use in any cocktail. Not only will you know how to make your very own signature cocktails, you’ll save money — and have fun — doing it.


Born in Brooklyn, with stints in PA, Boston, and DC before returning to his beloved New York, Kurt Maitland started his whisk(e)y journey with drams of Jameson, the beloved drink of a college friend. From there he moved on to appreciating Maker’s Mark and Knob Creek and has been exploring the world of whiskey ever since. He currently nurses a fascination with old books on the whiskey industry, dead distilleries, and a love of Japanese whisky that led him to be consulted by The Atlantic. Kurt is one of the best-known faces in New York City’s whiskey circuit. He is currently the Deputy Editor of the Whiskey Reviewer website, has released a book on cocktails called Drink, and is in the process of wrapping his second book on Cocktails.
