Submit a Cocktail Recipe

1. I’m working on a 2nd edition of the Negroni Book, to be published in 2015 by 10-Speed Press.  All new negroni variations welcome.

2. I’m always looking for recipes for the next 101 Best New Cocktails book, an annual journal that’s released in June or July each year.  The drinks included in each year’s book are chosen by gaz and gaz alone, his decisions are incredibly subjective, and yes, pretty faces sometimes enter into the picture.  Live with it.  This is an ongoing search, and each year another 101 best new drinks will be announced.

3. I’m also on the lookout for new cocktails suitable for me to feature in my San Francisco Chronicle column, The Cocktailian.  Please know that 99.9-percent of these are created by working bartenders, but there have been the odd exceptions over the years, so go ahead, let me know about your drink, why doncha?

Please note:

If your recipe appears in one of my books, that doesn’t mean that you get a free copy.  Sorry.  Just can’t afford that.  Thanks for understanding.

I’ll get back to you ONLY if I think that your recipe should move on to the second round.  If you don’t hear from me within 4 to 6 weeks, then your recipe wasn’t chosen.

Please don’t write to ask me what I think of your drink–I just don’t have time to answer.  Sorry.

Please fill in EVERY box on this form is you want your recipe to come through.

Sorry for all the rules, but hopefully they will save both you and me time down the road.
