-Classic garnishes, including real Cocktail Cherries and Cocktail Onions

-Classic mixers like Grenadine, Ginger Beer Concentrate, and Bloody Mary Mix

Make your own infusions:

-Base spirits including Cucumber, Lemon & Dill Gin and Jalapeño-Cilantro Vodka

I love love love this book! It has some amazing recipes that can be used for more than just cocktails. It is well written and easy to understand. Any person with a moderate degree of skill in the kitchen can make these recipes with no problems. The majority of the recipes use ingredients you can easily find at your local grocery store or in your backyard (like honeysuckle or hibiscus flowers). It even tells you how to store your homemade products and what the shelf life will be. I can't wait to try them all.
