Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Martinis are the toast of the town! They're evocative. Sophisticated. Sensual. They appeal to those who are savvy. Suave. Confident. With liquid elegance and glamorous mystique, martinis launched today's discriminating cocktail culture and turned bartenders into "bar chefs."

101 Martinis goes beyond gin or vodka and vermouth classics to include adventurous recipes with rum, scotch, fruit infusions, liqueurs, ice cream, and even herbal supplements. Freshen up your martini repertoire and entertain stylishly with these intriguing variations for every season and occasion. Try standards like the Classic Martini and Dirty Martini or offbeat concoctions like the Lavendartini and the Ginseng Sling Martini. Serve Moroccan Mint Teanis for brunch or high tea, or Ultimate Chocolate Martinis for after-dinner cocktails. Enjoy Lemon Granita Martinis poolside or Hot Chocolate Martinis fireside. Serve the guys Men's Yang Martinis and the gals Women's Yin Martinis, or bring them together with Flirtinis!

Recommendations help you pair martinis with foods they'll complement—salty, sweet, spicy, or sour. Chill the glasses, get out the cocktail shaker, and become a bar chef yourself. Your quest for the ever-elusive "perfect martini" begins here.

From the Back Cover

"Kim Haasarud's culinary approach to the cocktail embraces fresh ingredients and a playful disregard for the ordinary. A fine addition to the home library and a great resource for a young bartender."
—Dale DeGroff, author of The Craft of the Cocktail

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.

I purchased two copies of this book, both for Christmas presents, and I loved it so much that I wanted to keep one for myself!

This book has a great variety of martini recipes - I'm usually a fan of basic dirty martinis, but there are so many options for interesting drinks in here, I'm looking forward to branching out and trying them all. It's a great book to use if you're throwing a party, since there are drinks in every color, flavor, and for every season. So far I've tried the Pineapple Champagne martini, which was really good. The book also has a ton of really beautiful photos.

Not all of the drinks in this book are technically Martini's, however it is nicely put together. The recipes are well written and the accompanying photos (and there's one for every drink) are beautifully done. I bought this for my roommate after having seen it at Crate and Barrel (I knew Amazon would have a better price, of course!) and she loved it. I haven't yet tried any of the drinks, but having taken Mixology and majored in Culinary Arts, I knew the recipes would produce tasty libations based on ingredient combinations.

As stated, however, some of the "martinis" are really just cocktails in martini glasses, but it's all in good fun anyway, isn't it?

I like 201 martinis better, but I don't regret buying this book. You don't own only one cook book, do you? Having multiple different recipe books on hand is, well, handy. I could compare features of the two books, but I would rather just encourage you to buy them both to get free super saver shipping and start experimenting with and enjoying your cocktails. Nice photos. But if you insist, it is the ingredient index and greater number of recipe's that makes me like 201 better.

This is a fun and beautiful little book. But it's not very user-friendly because there is no index. For instance, if you would like to find a recipe for a pumpkin martini or if you want to see if there are martini recipes with cranberry or lemon, you have to flip through the entire book. Who puts together a recipe book with no index?

No index fore or aft, no system, nothing much to offer but cute photos. Do they imagine someone is going to browse this for recipes, or is it just a throwaway stocking stuffer?
