Hundreds of fabulous concoctions are included, from traditional to trendy, from sophisticated to luscious tropical tastes. All your favorite liquors are here: vodka, gin, rum, whisky, brandy, and even sparkling, celebratory champagne.
Whip up a Bloody Mary for a special brunch or Hot Buttered Rum for a cold winter’s night. Sip a Mint Julep out on the porch, like a true Southerner. Get sexy with a Between the Sheets. Grab some cachaça, limes, and sugar and make a Caipirinha, Brazil’s delicious national drink. Or feel as if you’re down in old Havana with a Cuba Libre or minty Mojito. Plus, there are plenty of punches to enliven any party.
Most of the recipes include several variations to try out, and novices will find a wealth of basic information, including tips on what to drink and when; what equipment, glassware, and ingredients you’ll need; and which techniques you must know —including shaking, muddling, building, and layering. There’s also advice on getting everything ready and what to do when speed is of the essence.
When you want to learn how to mix drinks, this is the beginner’s guide you’ll need.

I got this for my sister for her 21st birthday, and it was a great choice! It had tons of recipes, and we want to try them all! It includes some background information about the history of the drinks, as well, which we found interesting. Definitely a good choice for a first cocktail book.Was this review helpful?
