Just in time for New Year’s Eve
A well dressed bartender with a winning smile greeted me as soon as I opened the book AND then I flipped a few pages ahead where I saw this:
Of course since I have almost all of these already here, I plan on actually giving this a test try tomorrow for a New Year’s Eve "shinding" that I’m hosting.
I’ve highlighted a couple of my faves from the book below. I am also really smitten with their presentation.
Shake, Shake Twist on page 25
Basil Julep(perfect for Kentucky Derby parties too), page 39
Mon Cheri Moscow Mule. A mixture of cherries, ginger, vodka in carbonated ginger beer has to taste divine! I am in love with the container too! Page 115
Pressed and Minted can only mean refreshing and earthy. I imagine this would be a go to cocktail especially in the Summer. Page 182.
In the book, a craft cocktail is defined as one that has been constructed with time and thoughtfulness, intended to imprint an unforgettable taste. I am looking forward to impressing guests and leaving an unforgettable taste in their mouths. Heck, I want to leave an unforgettable taste in my mouth so I will be trying these even if I am not entertaining! It’s definitely worth your perusal. It’s almost 2014!! How amazing is that!? Blessings and one love. xx
P.S. I was given the book to review but the thoughts, adjectives, and unique expressions are all my own.
