Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There's nothing worse than being stuck behind the bar at your own party making drink after drink after drink. In Cocktails for a Crowd Kara Newman has done the hard work of scaling up your favorite punches, tropical drinks, and classic tipples. But she knows a drink's allure is more than just liquor, which is why she offers infusion ideas, garnishing tips, and mixology techniques to craft potent potables for a multitude. Let the party begin." - David Leite, publisher of Leite's Culinaria
Library Journal
Spirits editor for Wine Enthusiast magazine and author Newman (Spice & Ice) shares expert advice for preparing large batches of great cocktails, presenting over 40 recipes and preparation tips from experienced bartenders. For party hosts who prefer to socialize with guests rather than mix drinks all night, this book provides an index of drinks suitable for large batches (punches, pitcher drinks, tiki & tropical drinks, cool & classic drinks) and conveniently offers lessons in balancing flavors, measuring techniques, and presentation ideas. Several pages dedicated to homemade garnishes, sweetening syrups, and specialty ice help elevate recipes to the next level. VERDICT While a few of the plan-ahead tricks might be common sense to some readers, the majority of advice in this user-friendly book will be extremely helpful to the novice bartender.—Laura Snavely, Library Journal
