    I won Summer Cocktails: Margaritas, Mint Juleps, Punches, Party Snacks, and More in Goodreads' "First-Reads" giveaway program. Rather than rehashing the classics, this book offers something new in so far as it contains loads of variations with quick blurbs, box text, and/or references back to the classic on which a particular recipe may be a spin. Attractively designed, the book uses cooling summer colors, an inviting/bar menu-reminiscent font (you'll know what I mean the moment you see it), and I won Summer Cocktails: Margaritas, Mint Juleps, Punches, Party Snacks, and More in Goodreads' "First-Reads" giveaway program.

I've tabbed numerous items for the coming summer months, over the course of which we'll be trying the Sake to Me, Pimm's Editions,Trouble in Paradisi, Dolce Far Niente, La Dolce Vita, Limeade, the Downtown L.A. Dogs with Guacamole, and the Chile, Chorizo, and Potato Breakfast Tacos. While possibly not the message you want to send as a Graduation Day goody for the new college graduate, this book would make a great gift to anyone who enjoys a little quelque chose a boire with an upcoming summer birthday or other gift-giving occasion. I know I appreciate the copy with which I've been gifted--thanks, First-reads!

    I received this book for an honest review through the Goodreads Giveaways program. I'll admit I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, due to the fact that I'm nose deep in college papers and finals. That being said, both my husband and I have certain ones picked out that are on the must try list. With a few that we want to use our friends as guinea pigs for. If you do like the occasional cocktail and are looking for some new ideas, this book has some really good ideas in it.

    Great photography. I think that is key for any cookery book. I don't cook much although I do like to play mixologist and I appreciated the straightforward recipes for simple syrups (and how to adapt them with herbs) and shrubs. Lot's of inspiring cocktail ideas here and always the suggestion to try things the way you like by substituting. The snack recipes are tempting too. Great photography.

    A useless book as far as I'm concerned. For those who are thoroughly invested in mastering cocktails and playing around with exotic ingredients, it's interesting. If the idea of buying ginger liqueur or anything else "unique" you would see this as too heavy an investment just to make one cocktail, and it is a heavy investment to buy a singular bottle.

My only regret is not finding a Mojito recipe among the beautiful pages of this book. But, maybe that is just a hint that it is time to expand my cocktail selection to one of the other tasty tipples inside. Cheers! Thank you to the publisher for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from GoodReads. It is one of the prettiest cocktail books I have seen! The pictures are just stunning, and the drinks are artfully arranged. The photos alone make me want to break out a shaker and immediately try some of the concoctions--even if I wouldn't have otherwise chosen a drink made with, say, bourbon. The recipes are well written and approachable. I'm most excited to try drinks from the chapter on punches, and now need to throw a party in ord I received a complimentary copy of this book from GoodReads.

Throughout the book, the drinks range from classic to innovative, but none seem extraordinarily complicated. Additionally, there are simple steps included for how to make ingredients like rhubarb syrup or strawberry vodka--and I know I can do it at home! It's a beautifully designed and approachable cocktail book, and I'm looking forward to making my way through the recipes!

    I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads. The photos in this book are gorgeous, and reading through the recipes made me want to try them all right away. There are interesting facts throughout, like the difference between sherbert and sorbet right next to a tasty looking spiked rainbow sherbert recipe. There is even a chapter of food recipes to accompany the drinks, such as scallop ceviche to go on a skewer with a Bloody Mary.

    This book combines breathtaking photos with a combination of traditional and non-traditional summer cocktails (plus a few summer BBQ recipes). The book also contains recipes for making your own infused liqueurs and simply syrup. Even if you don't mix a lot of cocktails, the photos alone make this book worth having.
