Editorial Reviews

Review

Peter Joseph tears the bed sheets off a most neglected class of entertainment, that of the bibulous brunch. Peter approaches his subject with the sense and sensibility of a scholar and the astute consideration of a seasoned son of Bacchus! Any revelation of a new cocktail opportunity ought to be met with a Pulitzer nomination, if not one from Dr. Nobel—speech, Mr. Joseph, speech!

(Ted Haigh, author of Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails )

Beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully put together, Boozy Brunch is a refreshing quaff, indeed. (Gary Regan, author of The Joy of Mixology )

This is an erudite, entertaining and encyclopedic tour through boozy breakfasts and brunches, written with great charm and chastening knowledge of cocktails, sprinkled with humorous quotations and excellent photography that will appeal to even the glassiest-eyed pre-noon imbiber. (Milton Crawford, author of The Hungover Cookbook )

It’s great to have a new take on brunch drinks, and Joseph includes plenty of recipes for the novice as well as more elaborate and original cocktails. Anyone interested in including alcoholic beverages in daytime entertaining will appreciate this book.
(Library Journal )

Given the range of recipes here, hosts and guests alike will be happily measuring out mornings and afternoons with coffee spoons and cocktail stirrers.
(Publishers Weekly )

Moving beyond Blood Marys and Irish coffee, a new book turns the weekend's daytime drinking tradition into an art form.
(The Advocate )

The book is written in a jaunty style that doesn’t entirely take itself seriously, mixing up quips, scoops of information, trivia, recipes and quite a few laughs into the book equivalent of a cocktail shaker before giving it a damn good shake.
(Yum Magazine )

Drinking before the evening doesn't make one a drunk if you show the right tastes. "Boozy Brunch: The Quintessential Guide to Daytime Drinking" is a bartending guide from Peter Joseph as he presents a daytime array of alcoholic beverages one can create for a bit of classy daytime drinking, bringing variations into coffee and tea, in addition to fruit and vegetable mixes as well. "Boozy Brunch" is a strong addition to any cookbook or general bartending collection.

(Midwest Book Review )

Peter Joseph's Boozy Brunch is the weekend companion you've been dreaming of. Whether your tastes run toward a Champagne cocktail, a Bartender's Breakfast, or a Salty Dog, you'll find the right match for your kind of Sunday morning.
(Beth Fish Reads Blog )

Joseph has concocted over 100 new recipes that are sure to jolt you awake in the morning.
(Wine Enthusiast )

Boozy Brunch: The Quintessential Guide to Daytime Drinking is a bartending guide from Peter Joseph, [who] presents a[n] array of alcoholic beverages one can create for a bit of classy daytime drinking, bringing variations . . . to coffee and tea in addition to fruit and vegetable mixes. . . . Boozy Brunch is a strong addition to any cookbook or general bartending collection.
(Midwest Book Review )

Classic and contemporary cocktail recipes for breakfast parties in a pretty and colorful hardcover. Joseph suggests food pairings, provides drink histories, and sprinkles cocktail quotes like sugar on the rim.
(Booklist, Starred Review )

[T]he perfect gift for the lush who has everything.
(Las Vegas Weekly )

Great for new twists on old cocktails and also the classic oldies, but always goodies. . . . I’m also now prepared to drink more than a mimosa before noon.

The design of the book is neat: it lays flat on your bar or kitchen countertop for easy reference.
Noble M. Smith
As the name says, this book is more than a collection of cocktail recipes - it is a guide to daytime drinking - complete with historical notes and quotes.
Tricia Fields
Also, there's a lot of general cocktail knowledge in the book that can be carried over into multiple variations of the preparations presented.

The drinks in this book contain a well-done background research and some original drinks to sample. The food items are also relatively unique and not too difficult to pull off. The extensive section on the Bloody Mary and varitions thereof is fun to read and an excellent resource. This may not be the most in-depth book on morning food and drink in existence, but it is fun and thoughtful. It might almost be worth picking up just for the Champagne Punch and Irish Coffee variations.

I've always loved the idea of afternoon cocktails, ever since I was a teenager and my uncle took me to the famous Raffles Hotel Bar in Singapore where I ogled at all the smartly dressed people sipping their famous Gin Slings. With Boozy Brunch, Peter Joseph has written a swanky book about cocktails that makes drinking at luncheon seem just as splendidly louche as the scene at that fancy hotel. There are many delicious concoctions in Boozy Brunch, some are simple, some more complicated, but all are fascinating mixture of tastes, colors and textures with the occasional wild ingredient (Cocoa Puffs! Bacon!).

Joseph's book makes you think of a cocktail brunch as something fun and edifying--a gathering of witty friends imbibing tasty drinks and eating good food. It's the young hip Brooklyn Bunch as opposed to the old debauched Rat Pack. Joseph wants to help you create an atmosphere of good nature where conversation flows, helped along by a little fancy liquid lubrication. The book also includes recipes for things like egg and cheese strata as well as handy instructions for making your own simple syrup (a key ingredient in many of the drinks) and orgeat syrup--essential for a proper Mai Tai. The text is written in a spirited voice with a wry (or should I say rye?) wit. His introduction to hangover cures is hilarious.

You can start out really easy with the mixes in Boozy Brunch and work your way up to something more time consuming to prepare. The first thing I made was a Bellini (peach puree and prosecco) which took about five minutes. My wife and I thought it was delish. I'm looking forward to a Suffering Bastard which appeals to me not only for its Monty Pythonesque name but because it calls for dark rum and overproof rum.

As someone who appreciates a good cocktail but is a little leery of the knowledge and cost needed to make them myself, I am glad I bought this book. It is a great reference for making robust, delicious drinks. Also, there's a lot of general cocktail knowledge in the book that can be carried over into multiple variations of the preparations presented. And the food recipes were a pleasant surprise! This book makes me excited to get up early on the weekends.
