Hora de c�cteles: cocktail hour in Latin America. Step into a bar in Buenos Aires in the early evening and you'll see friends savoring a few small tapas and enjoying a drink-perhaps a bellini, fresh peach nectar combined with champagne and kissed with fresh raspberries, or a lime-infused caipirinha.
With Mambo Mixers, Arlen Gargagliano takes readers on a sumptuous sojourn into the bars, homes, and parties of our Latin American neighbors, from Mexico to Argentina. She serves up recipes for 50 enticing cocktails and 20 piquant tapas-all made with easy-to-find ingredients-along with lots of serving suggestions and make-ahead tips. The Kiwi Caipirinha, Classic Cuban Daiquiri, and Peruvian Winter Wine are among the featured drinks, accompanied by such tapas as Crisp Toasts with Chimichurri, Tortilla Espa�ola, and Dominican Shrimp Croquettes. With virtually limitless cocktail hour combinations, Mambo Mixers offers a sampling of the tropical and savory pleasures found just south of the border.
