About the Book
Barantined is the ultimate guide to creating your own bar experience at home!
Shake, stir, and sip your way through quarantine with more than 80 easy-to-make cocktail recipes, techniques for making cordials, and the best drinking tips from mavericks of the mixology scene.

Compiled by Nashville writer and mixologist extraordinaire Mike Wolf, Barantined aims to catch a unique moment in time when the world spun out of control and came to a halt all at once. In March 2020, the restaurant and bar business shut down for months when a devastating tornado tore through Nashville and a pandemic rocked the world. Join bartenders from Nashville and beyond in Barantined as they share what they miss about being behind the bar and how their approach to their profession has changed, alongside their favorite DIY drinks and activities designed to bring the bar to you.
