101 fun and fruity cocktails for chilling out by the beach
Whether you're on the islands or in the backyard, there's nothing like a cold, refreshing tropical cocktail for cooling down on a hot summer day. In this new addition to the popular 101 Cocktails series, Kim Haasarud offers the ultimate cocktail guide for summertime entertaining with classic tropical cocktails and plenty of new creations.
Inside, you'll find traditional piand#241;a coladas and mai tais, plenty of refreshing punch bowl drinks, and classic cocktails remade with modern twists, like the Guava Basil Cooler or the Blackberry-Pineapple Sidecar. Like the other books in the series, the recipes here are focused on using fresh fruit and herbs to create thrilling flavors.
Even if you can't make it to a tropical island, you can turn any hot-weather occasion into a roaring good time with 101 Tropical Drinks.
Both classic and sophisticated shot recipes like you've never seen before. Forget what you think you know about shots from your college years. In 101 Shots, cocktail aficionado Kim Haasarud elevates the lowly shot to heights never seen before in this collection of recipes just as sheand#8217;s done with her other books including 101 Martinis and 101 Margaritas. For example, the Peach Fuzz Shooter, the Mini Bananas Foster, and the Archangel are made with fresh fruit purees. There are more traditional recipes as well, such as the Belfast Bomber made with Baileys and Irish whiskey dropped into a glass of Guinness, not to mention spicy offerings like the Yellow Sun Sangrita made with smoked paprika and Tabasco, and even savory ones like the Caprese Shooter made with tomatoes, basil, salt, pepperand#8212;and vodka, of course. Whatand#8217;s perhaps best about shot recipes is that there is almost no occasion when theyand#8217;re not fun to serve and enjoy, from the Johnny Appleseed, a perfect drink for fall made with fresh cider, to the Red, White, and Blue, a layered concoction ideal for Independence Day parties. With geland#233;e shot recipes, too, this may be the last party cocktail book youand#8217;ll ever need.
