Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Entertain at home with ease, whipping up a delectable spread of pre-dinner treats, or simply transform a weeknight into a happy hour that rivals that of the swankiest bar. Bringing the party home with drinks and snacks just got easier-—even the amateur mixologist will be shaking and stirring in no time. Happy Hour at Home boasts sure-to-please classics like the Manhattans and mojitos, along with more inventive twists like Watermelon Cosmos and Kimchi Bloody Marys. The book also includes 90 recipes for a host of delicious treats, from Spanish tapas to American bar classics like sliders and oven-baked fries, to French and Italian-inspired flatbreads and olives that pair perfectly with cocktails for the ultimate at-home happy hour.

Review:

"Long-time cookbook author Scott-Goodman (The Ski Country Cookbook) loves to meet up with friends at a bar for a few rounds of small plates and drinks. Her latest cookbook shows readers how to easily recreate this experience at home, offering an array of enticing recipes for drinks and nibbles. She organizes the book into five regions: American Bar Classics, Continental Tastes, Asian Influences, Latin Flavors and Island Fever. For the first, bar-food staples like a fresh herbed nut mix, fried pickles, and deviled eggs with smoked trout and watercress pair up with martinis, gibsons, and manhattans. The following chapters continue apace: how about teriyaki chicken wings with a sake martini? Why not wash down corn and cheese arepas with a 'Spicy Tequila Bloody Mary.' A selection of cocktail extras help garnish simple mixed drinks transforming them into gourmet concoctions. In all, Scott-Goodman offers a tasty take on classic bar snacks that will have happy hour aficionados hosting at home. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:
