Recipes & Histories of Classic Cocktails
CO Specs is your comprehensive A to Z guide to the world’s most popular classic cocktails.
Making drinks is hard.
Let us help.
What is it?
With tens of thousands of cocktails in existence, how many of those could be considered classic, essential... or even tasty?
CO Specs distills down to the 200 true classics everyone should know. Just the essentials. The best, not the rest.
HISTORY (for cheaters)
There’s always debate and discussion about the “correct” way to make a classic drink. The aim of CO Specs is to illuminate the answer, and the reasoning behind it.
CO Specs explores the history & fable underpinning each classic drink, revealing the original provenance of its appearances in print, as if torn straight from the pages of these (sometimes ancient) recipe books.
The last specs book you'll ever need.
For Bartenders, it’s a thorough field manual of all the classics you should know. A one stop shop. The book I wish I’d had (and spent far too long creating).
For the Home Enthusiast — shake up a few cocktails after a long day; mix something to impress your dinner guests. You’ll find all of your favourite cocktails (as well as many gems yet undiscovered) among the CO Specs.
