Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Nothing says "celebration" like the sound of champagne corks popping, and cocktails made with sparkling wine are the perfect libations at festive occasions. They're crisp, fresh, fizzy, and delicious. What could be better when you're celebrating a wedding, a birthday, the beginning of a new year, or just the end of a long week?

In this beautiful little book, Kim Haasarud, the Liquid Chef, gives you 101 different stylish ways to celebrate with champagne and sparkling wine. You'll find recipes for all your bubbly favorites—Classic Champagne Cocktail, Bellini, Mimosa, and Kir Royale, to name just a few. But you'll also discover lots of creative contemporary cocktails that are sure to become the toast of the town. Liven up any celebration with a Limoncello Sparkle, Poinsettia Cocktail, or Sparkling Fruit Bath. For a summer cooler, try a cocktail made with sorbet, such as Hope Floats or Lady Temptation. And for a romantic evening, you can't go wrong with seductive cocktails like the Adam & Eve, Aphrodisia, and Passionate French 75.

So pick up a bottle of bubbly and get out the cocktail shaker. With the sensational champagne cocktails in this book, celebrating has never been easier—or more fun.

From the Back Cover

"Corks popping, frothy liquid flowing, a cold crispy freshness . . . nothing quite so perfectly reflects the notion of 'the best in life.' This is a book for celebrants. It's a book for romantics. It's a book for the entertainerwho wants a light, fresh concoction that can bring people together to accent the joys of the day. So break out the bubbly and toast!"
—From 101 Champagne Cocktails


More About the Author

Kim Haasarud is a James Beard-honored mixologist, author, and beverage consultant. She conceives her signature cocktails much as Alice Waters would create a specialty dish, taking inspiration from market-fresh, high quality ingredients. "Cocktails, like food, should be culinary experiences," says Haasarud. "It is about combining ingredients to create a sensation on the palate and entice all the senses with a combination of flavors, textures, aromas, and garnishes."

You won't find the standard Cosmopolitan or mix-based Margarita on Haasarud's ever-changing bar card. Instead, depending on the occasion or the season, she might shake up Martini infusing teas with fresh muddled fruits, or concoct a Margarita with ripe kumquats or a combination of kiwis and fresh herbs.

Like many of her peers, Haasarud bartended her way through college. But what was just a job for most became a creative outlet for her keen sense of taste. It also sparked an enduring passion for building great cocktails, one that Haasarud still longed to indulge after graduating and going to work in film and television. She found her opportunity in the many industry parties she attended. "The drinks and the bars were always the same and always boring, despite very creative food and themes," says Haasarud. "I recognized that a great cocktail experience would add a rich element to each event." And thus, Haasarud's company, Liquid Architecture, was formed.

Haasarud's liquid cuisine has stirred up a huge following in both New York and Los Angeles. She works with such groups as: PF Changs, Wyndham Worldwide Hotels & Resorts, OMNI, Ritz Carlton, Mastro's, Z'Tejas, Darden, Brinker, TGI Fridays and hundreds of restaurant and wine and spirit clients have commissioned specialty cocktails by Haasarud, including Moet-Hennessy, SKYY Spirits, Future Brands, Diageo, Maxim, and Pepsico to name just a few.

Kim has been a judge on Iron Chef America, as well doing guest appearances on the "The Today Show," CBS' "Early Morning Show," "Fox & Friends Live," "Montel Williams Show", "Sonoran Living", "Your Life A to Z" and Plum TV. She has been featured on various radio programs including "Good Food" with Evan Kleiman, Martha Stewart's "Everyday Food", "Cosmo Radio" and ABC & CNN Radio syndicate. Her cocktails have been seen in hundreds of magazines and newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, LA Times, San Francisco Chronicle, The Washington Post, Saveur, Edible LA, Vogue, SELF, Wine Enthusiast, BRIDES, Woman's World, Lucky, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Associated Press to name a few. She is also REDBOOK Magazine's "Mommy Mixologist" providing recipes in a monthly column as well as an online blog.

Kim is the author of the best-selling "101... " cocktail series with Wiley & Sons (101 Margaritas , 101 Martinis , 101 Sangrias & Pitcher Drinks, 101 Champagne Cocktails, 101 Blended Drinks and 101 Mojitos and other Muddled Drinks.)

She lives with her husband Kevin, two children Holden & Maddy, and dog Emi in Phoenix, AZ.

Format: Hardcover
I recently planned the menu for my wedding reception, and I asked the bartender to mix one of the drinks from this book as our signature cocktail: The Pacific Star (pg.106...it's a clever blend of white cranberry juice, vodka, orange curacao, lychee syrup, lemon juice, and champagne, finished off with a slice of starfruit for garnish). The cocktail was originally created by the author of 101 Champagne Cocktails for The Four Seasons Maui. It's unique and absolutely delicious. I know all of our guests will be thrilled. I have purchased several cocktail books in the past, but this one surpasses them all. The recipes are very straightforward, and something even a novice could create, but the result is spectacular every time. The author compiled a fabulous mix of her own recipes, and those of other master mixologists (such as the Ritz Cocktail on page 15). Every recipe I have mixed so far has dazzled my guests. I highly recommend this for anyone in search of delightful drink recipes that are truly one-of-a-kind.

Who knew champagne could be used in so many ways! And here I thought I was limited to the traditional Mimosa when it came to champagne. Boy was I wrong, the author offers over 100 delicious uses for champagne...With its easy to follow recipes, this book will make you look at champagne in a totally "fresh" and new way!
