Publisher Comments:

Put a little "hip" in your "sip." With this handy little book, cocktails at home have never been more exciting to make, to drink, or to serve.

Each refreshing drink features exotic and lipsmacking combinations of ripened fruits, herbs, flavorings, and spirits created by an acclaimed master mixologist — for tastes that are modern, intriguing, and really delicious. Guava Cosmos and the Vermont vodka martini, spiked with a secret ingredient, give a new twist to cocktails at six. Welcome guests to a dinner party with a Mr. 820, a martini as smooth as James Bond himself, or offer Avocado Daiquiris to revelers at a casual barbecue. Rustle up a bowl of passion fruit — infused citrus punch for and exciting Sunday brunch. Then shake up some drinks minus the alcohol, plus all the verve, and the designated drivers will thank you.

Also included are recipes for fruit purees and infused vodkas that will quickly transform an ordinary cocktail into a drink that will energize the host and the partygoer alike. Add a couple of the author's signature garnishes like lollipop rims, citrus twists, and berry picks and your next party will be a fresh fruit and flavor cocktail revolution!

Synopsis:

Lucy Brennan shakes up the cocktail world with more than 60 refreshing drinks brimming with exotic combinations of ripened fruits, herbs, flavorings, and spirits. Guava Cosmos, a martini as smooth as James Bond, a frosty bowl of passion fruit-infused citrus punch... Add a few recipes for fruit purees and infused vodkas, the author's signature garnishes (like lollipop rims, citrus twists, and berry picks), and a waterproof clear vinyl jacket, and this handy little book will turn the home bar into a hip and happening hotspot.

If you are a fan of the cocktails at Mint or 820 here in Portland, this is the book for you. Lucy gives you the secrets behind her great drinks- no more trying to reverse engineer them (as fun as that can be) from the menu you swiped last time. The plastic cover is especially brilliant- keeps the book from getting sticky, and allows it to be wiped off. Great book, great gift for friends, GREAT drinks. Thanks for sharing your secrets, Lucy.
