Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Frozen or on the rocks is for amateurs, now that W. Park Kerr is on the scene. Kerr, a ninth-generation Texan with agave in his blood, really knows his way around a margarita — as he reveals here with more than 60 recipes for his favorite tequila-kissed concoctions. Patio party or swanky soiree, the opportunities to cha-cha with Senorita Margarita are many. There is, of course, the classic, the timeless, Ultimate Margarita. Witness also the tropical Frozen Mandarina Margarita and Citrus Cantina Cooler, where unexpected fruit flavors make a splash. With rowdy gelatin shooters, potent punches, tasty tequila-friendly snacks, including an outrageous flan cake, Viva Margarita will make the most demure hostess belt out an uninhibited "Viva!"

Review:

"Made from the heart of the blue agave plant, tequila is a liquor that tends to provoke strong feelings: people either rave over its rich, pungent taste or roll their eyes heavenward and recall nights that never should've been. Kerr clearly falls into the first category. In the introduction to his latest recipe book, the founder of the El Paso Chile Company exuberantly declares that the most famous tequila cocktail, the margarita, is not just a drink: rather, it's a 'lifestyle,' a 'lively libation that fuels our passion for celebrations with fire and soul.' Readers who share his opinion will appreciate the bonanza of tequila cocktails he presents here. From Uber-itas that highlight 'the sweet, the tart and the feisty' tastes of a classic margarita mix to Tequila Gelatin Shooters and fruity Mango Pellegrinos and Iguanabananas, all his recipes rely upon the notorious 'cactus water.' Many of the drinks are revisions of other classic cocktails: the Nacionalista is a sort of tequila Cosmopolitan; the Agave María is a tequila Bloody Mary. But a few of the drinks are entirely original: Stumbling Tumbleweed Punch, for example, combines limeade concentrate, tequila, crème de cassis and spicy ginger beer into a pink concoction that 'has so much zing, it will put the fizz in your next backyard bash.' Thankfully, Kerr refrains from plugging his company's own dips, salsas and mixes in this book — there are only two photos of his new brand of tequila — making this an almost entirely impartial tribute to the 'agave experience.'"
