If you could have anyone in the world fix you a drink, that person might be Mr Jim Meehan – owner of Please Don’t Tell – aka PDT – one of New York’s best-respected cocktail joints (named best bar in the world in 2011), author of The Please Don’t Tell Cocktail Book, and a keen drinks editor and journalist. But with his new book – Meehan’s Bartender Manual, which is out now – he wants to teach you how to do it yourself. To celebrate his latest release (plus the opening of his new Chicago-based bar Prairie School), we asked him for his favourite cocktails to take you through winter. And how to make them.
