The Ultimate Guide to Pitcher Drinks: Cool Cocktails for a Crowdby Sharon Tyler Herbst
Synopses & Reviews
In the mood for a Summer Hummer?
How about a French Flirt or a Neon Nexus?
or Maybe even a Sin City Slider?
This book includes these and 150 more cool cocktails for a crowd—everything from classics like Sangría, Martinis, and Manhattans, to newer favorites like Kamikazes and Mudslides, to international raves such as Brazil’s Caipirinha and Cuba’s Mojito, not to mention liquor-free variations. Plus, there’s information on mixing techniques, ingredients, equipment, and glassware, hangover helpers, tips on party food for non-cooks, and a user-friendly index that lists recipes by ingredients.
Serving pitcher drinks is an ingeniously effortless way to entertain and still have fun at your own party. It’s an idea whose time has come—in fact, it’s long overdue. No doubt about it, a premixed pitcher of drinks is a huge asset to any gathering. Making individual cocktails not only takes time, but removes you from the action. So mix up a batch of pitcher drinks and join in the party. They’re stylish, fun, and easy, and they definitely take the angst out of entertaining!
A lively guide to party drinks for large and small gatherings alike presents more than fifty delicious pitcher drink recipes, including suggestions for alcohol-free variations, from such classics as Sangra and the Manhattan to international specialties and new concoctions. Original. 25,000 first printing.
