Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

When the weather outside is frightful, what could be more delightful than a hot toddy? From the scent of nutmeg-laced hot buttered rum to the fizz of a poinsettia cocktail, there?s nothing like a classic winter drink to bring true festivity to the season. And it?s easy as pie?whipping up an eggnog from scratch is a whole lot simpler than cooking the perfect turkey, and your guests will appreciate the gesture as much as the taste. From spiced cider to champagne punch, Hot Toddies is the perfect little collection of winter refreshments, with fail-safe recipes that will make any holiday party shine.

These delicious seasonal drink ideas are as perfect for wintertime as a cold smoothie is for summer. Rather than offering guests the same lackluster wine, heat it with sweet spices, spike it with Aquavit, and serve up an authentic Swedish glögg for some true Christmas spirit. Tempt friends with the luscious richness of chocolate eggnog, topped with real chocolate whipped cream. Curl up on a blustery winter?s day with a steamy, frothy Irish coffee, or combine apple cider, bourbon, and spices for a Thanksgiving Day batch of harvest moon punch. In addition to these flavorful recipes, useful tips on everything from keeping punch cold to stocking a bar will help you concoct special drinks all winter long?even the whole year round.

Whether it?s a stocking stuffer, a hostess gift, or a great addition to your next holiday party, Hot Toddies is the perfect guide to celebrating the season.

A year ago during a mild winter, two weeks before christmas, the NE got a cold snap. IN the spirit of Yuletide I decided we should have a hot toddy. I searched my many cookbooks & found nothing. Went to the web and finally found a recipe (this took about 20 minuets via askjeeves) & we were finally able to happily quaff our drinks that cold winter's night. So I bought O'Hara's book in that spirit; hoping for more information and recipes that would be of Yuletides past. O'Hara delivered for I surely got that.
O'Hara also tosses in how to stock a bar, make lemonade, grenadine & cranberry juice, the history of most drinks (champagne and wines) & where you have to pay for the premium line and when you could avoid it.
On the downside, I did not like that the recipes as a rule were for parties; rarely does O"hara scale down for just a few people but luckily since all the measurements are 1 1/4 quarts of milk for 12 or 12 eggs for 12-14 a calculator could easily manage it for you. Unfortunately he does not tell you how many ounces are in a quart but if you don't know, other cookbooks should be able to manage that for you (hint hint Fannie Farmer, Joy of Cooking).
Also he gives the classic recipe for eggnog with raw eggs but neglects that if you use his recipe on Tom & Jerry you could easily produce a cooked (and thus safe) version. Despite these quibbles O'Hara is very thorough on holiday drinks & tells you what you need and don't. The fotos keep the book's spirit and add allot of colour.
For those who don't imbibe, O'Hara does tell you how to make non-alcoholic versions , just use more milk, & most of the ingredients are in your house. Instructions are a breeze.
It's been a colder autumn than normal in the NE and I'm glad I've got O'Hara to help keep me warm and my spirits high ;-)
Wassail!

This book has generally good to excellent recopies for Toddy, Eggnog, etc. But 23 pages (1/4 of the book) are on general bartending. Further another ¼ of the book is on simple common cocktails. There is only one Eggnog alternative (chocolate), one hot buttered run (Ice-cream based) one hot Toddy. This book is supposed to cover the topic and it doesn't.

This book has become a center piece for attention when we have guests over for dinners, Christmas parties as well as quiet evenings at home together... We have enjoyed these recipes and warmed our hearts with the variety of Hot Toddies on cold mornings and evenings. Great for anyone that enjoys good quality and taste.

From hot buttered rum to unusually warming cocktails, this comes packed with seasonal drink ideas geared to the weather and filled with warming spices. From Sherbet Punch to an unusual Chocolate Martini, enjoy dishes which are inviting and spiced with full-page color photos for maximum effect.
