Book Description

Review Butter & Scotch?is my happy place. Although it?s a few thousand miles away from Paris, Allison Kave and Keavy Landreth opened their mash-up of my two favorite things?cocktails and desserts?in one swell joint, in Brooklyn. Just walking in the door for the first time made me happy. And if they opened one nearby, I?d be happy every evening for the rest of my life. I love cocktails, and I love desserts, so it?s nice to find a great place that combines the two. The only issue for me is that it?s 3000 miles, or 4828 kilometers, away. So I have to wait until I?m in Brooklyn to get my fix.?Thankfully, there?s finally this cookbook, which offers recipes for their S?mores Pie?one of the best desserts I?ve ever had?their addictive caramel corn, their Menta Make a Julep, their Rock & Rye Milkshake, their Birthday Cake (which would play a big part in my recipe for happiness) . . . if this is starting to sound loopy, you?ll have to forgive me.
