The Cocktail: 200 Fabulous Drinks
The Cocktail
200 Fabulous Drinks
Paperback      ISBN: 1585425362

Two hundred tantalizing drink recipes made more delectable by witty commentary and fanciful illustrations.

To the uninitiated, a drink is just a drink. But connoisseurs know that what you sip is a statement and knowing one's poison is essential to making the right one. With style and sophistication, The Cocktail acquaints readers with the various personalities at the bar: gin bats its eyes behind a bookworm's glasses, whiskey scowls at passersby from the curb, and rum does a tipsy salsa with the bartender.

Featuring 200 concoctions with character, The Cocktail also shows readers the savoir faire of pairing drinks with occasions- mixing up a Rum Runner for an afternoon spent in bare feet and hammocks, or shaking up a 42 Flying Mules for a supercharged late night of raw emotion.

From Manhattans to Mojitos, Tibetan Mules to Southern Shags, The Cocktail covers drinks the world over from classics to trendy eyebrow-raisers. This charming book is divided into nine sections according to liquor-each introduced with a whimsically written profile:

- Champagne: The flirty, giddy staple, tottering around on heels, but not without substance and body- champagne is the leggy blonde who also boasts a degree in neuroscience.
- Gin: If gin had a wardrobe, it would be full of pleated skirts and ruffled shirts, lots of tweed and brooches.
- Tequila: Pin a red rose in your hair and dust on some bronzer-time to be saucy and brazen because, after all, the tequila made you do it. . . .
- Vodka: As racy as a Bond girl, as alluring as a fifties Hollywood starlet, and as compelling as a KGB agent dabbling in a little Russian roulette.

Throughout, Kat Macleod's collages personify cocktails as alluring women with devil-may-care airs-you'll want to cozy up to the bar with all of them. Both mischievous and elegant, this is a book to lift anyone's spirits.

Hardcover      ISBN: 1933615907
Takes all the guesswork out of putting together flavorful and practical menus

When you're entertaining, there's no room for failure--you want your food to deliver on taste and presentation--yet you want the recipes to be approachable enough so that you can enjoy the party, too. Menu planning is hard even for very experienced cooks, but with The America's Test Kitchen Menu Cookbook, we have taken the guesswork out of entertaining. The recipes are built and tested so that they complement each other, and all the logistics have been sorted out. You don't need to worry about oven space or temperature issues--we've done all that for you. And to keep the process stress-free, make-ahead instructions are built into individual recipes as well as each menu's game plan. Want to host a fall dinner party but don't want to get up at the crack of dawn? Try our Rustic Fall Pork Dinner. Simple ham and cheese palmiers made with puff pastry are a sure-to-impress starter, while the main course is an easy but elegant entree and side combo you can make on a sheet pan: roast pork loin with sweet potatoes and cilantro sauce. Tired of stressing out over Thanksgiving? Follow our timelines from start to finish and you'll be sipping a glass of wine along with your guests while the bird roasts. Want to bring the party outdoors? Try our Beat-the-Heat Grilled Shrimp Dinner or Dinner from the Garden. And themed menus like our Tapas Party, Pizza Night, Mexican Fiesta, and more are both fun and manageable. Stumped by appetizers but tired of serving crackers and cheese? You'll find plenty of options here, like our Simple Caramelized Onion Tart with Fig Jam, Blue Cheese, and Prosciutto (store bought pizza dough makes this a snap). Or try our contemporary take on smoked salmon canapes that features an easy creme fraiche dip, potato chips, and sliced smoked salmon. Organized around the seasons with menus that serve eight, plus a special holiday and for-a-crowd chapter, this volume is packed with tips that will help you shop and budget your time, this book is a must-have for anyone who likes to entertain.
