Overview

The sun caresses your skin as you gaze upon the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Soft white sand cushions your toes, and willowy palms dance in the warm breezes. As you lift your drink, you inhale the sweet aromas of coconut and lime juice. No matter where you are, no matter what the season, Calypso Coolers conjures up the magic of tropical seaside ecstasy.

Like its predecessor, Mambo Mixers, this colorful collection of 50 cocktails and 20 appetizers inspired by the Caribbean is an invitation to party paradise. All the classic island libations are here-daiquiris, tropical punches, fruit martinis-along with equally tantalizing concoctions like the Dominican Hurricane, made with rum, passion fruit nectar, and pineapple juice; the Dark and Stormy, a mixture of rum and ginger beer; and the Brown Cow, a silky combination of milk and coffee liqueur. The accompanying snacks-from Juanita's Yuca Fritters to Puerto Rican Corn Sticks and Jamaican Jerk Chicken-feature local flavors that are as varied and vibrant as the area's people and offer a lively complement to the cocktails.

Illustrated with eye-catching photographs and complete with pairing and serving suggestions, Calypso Coolers will give every occasion that first-day-of-vacation feeling.

    Heavenly!

    May 2, 2007 I had the pleasure of tasting Arlen Gargagliano's Mango Sangria at a recent Calypso Coolers book signing and couldn't resist buying the book! Arlen's cocktails not only look amazing, I can guarantee there won't be a dry glass at your next party. This caribbean inspired book is perfect for the summer - the drinks are delicious, easy to make and will give you lots of great ideas for both food and drink for BBQ's, pool parties and more. It's a great gift for anyone who's tired of plain beer and wine and wants to learn how to make a fabulous cocktail

    Affordable Tropical Getaway!

    I first looked at this book on the rainiest day the Northeast has seen in 100 years, and all I could feel were the warm breezes, hot sun and relaxed atmosphere of the Caribbean. These easy recipes, affectionate writing and colorful photos invoke a vacation state of mind like you wouldn't believe. I immediately tried the easy toasted garbanzo beans with a caribbean cosmo and didn't have a care in the world. If you are a fan of tropical drinks as well as snacks made with local caribbean flavors, this book will hit the spot.

    Doing her magic again!

    I¿m a huge fan of Arlen Gargagliano¿s cocktail and tapas books. I expected nothing less from her last one 'Calypso Coolers' than from her previous, 'Mambo Mixers.¿ The reason I enjoy reading, looking at and certainly not least, trying her recipes is that Arlen obviously has a true love for the creative process as well as the final savoring stage 'surely the most fun!' of cooking. This comes across clearly in her wonderful tropical selections and descriptions. This collection of Caribbean cocktails and party snacks will tickle the fancy of home cooks as well as discriminating epicureans 'such as myself'. Last Easter weekend, I put several of her drinks and hors d'oeuvres to the test. Needless to say, my ever-demanding family and group of friends were extremely pleased. Kudos were flying. I almost didn¿t want to give my 'secret' recipes away. But being the fan I am, that would not have been fair to this author's efforts.
