Dave Arnold's philosophy is simple: if you think like a scientist, you can make better drinks. Liquid Intelligence takes readers behind the bar and into the lab, where Arnold tinkers with temperature, carbonation, sugar concentration and acidity in search of new ways to enhance classic cocktails, from bubble formation to the ideal sugar compound for a daiquiri. With innovative techniques--clarifying cloudy liquids using gelatins, chilling drinks with liquid nitrogen--and practical tips for making infused liquors and homemade bitters, Liquid Intelligence is for anyone eager to learn the hows and whys of a beautifully made drink.

If you like science and you like spirited liquids, this is the one for you. It is so full of scientific tinkering that it has inspired an Adult Science program for Science Literacy Week. Meet with us Downtown in the Snell on Thursday, September 22 as we demonstrate some of the techniques in this book and meet To the Lost mixologists who will demonstrate their science and art. The program begins at 7 p.m.
