I was so glad when my library finally got this book. I love cocktails! I am not the best at making them at home though.. I have to have recipes! I really love recipes themed off books (movies/TV shows). So when I heard about this book I had to read it. Here is the goodreads description:
Unfortunately.. I didn't make any of the recipes before this review. I know... you wanted to see pictures of them made up right?? This book is for everyone. There are alcoholic recipes, virgin drinks, food recipes, and even recipes for book clubs so that you can make a bowl of punch. You not only get the recipes for a drink based off the book but there is also a book description provided as well.
|Carrie by Stephen King - Bloody Carrie|
I love the look the book has. Like an old book.. with cream colored pages. The beginning of the book is so excellent. I am not a bartender (like I said before) so I have no idea what some drink terms are. The book tells you about the different glasses, what the terms mean when mixing a drink, types of alcohol, and even garnishes. I truly believe this would be so fun for a book club meeting.
|Wizard of Oz non-alcoholic drink|
The only problem I can find with this book is that I probably won't ever own all the different types of alcohol since I am the only drinker in my house and would have to drink it up all alone. Or is that a problem???? HA! Some of the drinks though have very easily accessible ingredients. Especially in the non-alcoholic section. We had everything for the Wonderful Blizzard of Oz drink!
|Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea Breeze|
I loved this book. Really even if you don't drink pick it up and just glance through it. I found it very witty and enjoyable. A perfect gift for someone too. I copied down some of the recipes for myself since I borrowed mine from the library to keep for future reference. Just love this book!!
