Overview


Impress your guests with a delectable spread of pre-dinner treats, or simply transform a weeknight into a happy hour that rivals that of the swankiest bar. Bringing the party home with better-than-bar-quality drinks and snacks just got easier—even the amateur mixologist will be shaking and stirring in no time. Ditch those fussy drink recipes in favor of sure-to-please classics like the Manhattans and mojitos; kick a case of the Mondays to the curb with a refreshing after-work watermelon Cosmo; or start your weekend sipping a brunch-worthy Kimchi Bloody Mary. Happy Hour at Home also includes 90 recipes for a host of delicious treats ranging from Spanish tapas, American bar classics like sliders and oven-baked fries, to French and Italianinspired flatbreads and olives that pair perfectly with cocktails for the ultimate delicious and economical at-home treat!

Long-time cookbook author Scott-Goodman (The Ski Country Cookbook) loves to meet up with friends at a bar for a few rounds of small plates and drinks. Her latest cookbook shows readers how to easily recreate this experience at home, offering an array of enticing recipes for drinks and nibbles. She organizes the book into five regions: American Bar Classics, Continental Tastes, Asian Influences, Latin Flavors and Island Fever. For the first, bar-food staples like a fresh herbed nut mix, fried pickles, and deviled eggs with smoked trout and watercress pair up with martinis, gibsons, and manhattans. The following chapters continue apace: how about teriyaki chicken wings with a sake martini? Why not wash down corn and cheese arepas with a "Spicy Tequila Bloody Mary." A selection of cocktail extras help garnish simple mixed drinks transforming them into gourmet concoctions. In all, Scott-Goodman offers a tasty take on classic bar snacks that will have happy hour aficionados hosting at home. (July)
