Review

"Between the Margaritas, Andean Sunrise, Piscos Sours, and Caipirinhas, this book is packed with everything you could ever want to drink. Yvette and Vianney break down the Latin cocktail scene like never before! So until the next time you jet off on a fabulous Latin adventure, why not shake up a few cocktails and bring the vacation to your own kitchen?" --Gaby Dalkin, WhatsGabyCooking.com and author of Absolutely Avocados

"If you re looking for hot-weather cocktails, Latin Twist by Vianney Rodriguez and Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack has some great takes on traditional and modern drinks. The book celebrates the signature cocktails of 18 Latin American countries plus Spain, exploring the history and native ingredients. There are also wonderful modern takes on tradition, like this berry version of the classic Cuban mojito." --Linda Cicero, MIAMI HERALD

From the Inside Flap

"Between the Margaritas, Andean Sunrise, Piscos Sours, and Caipirinhas, this book is packed with everything you could ever want to drink. Yvette and Vianney break down the Latin cocktail scene like never before! So until the next time you jet off on a fabulous Latin adventure, why not shake up a few cocktails and bring the vacation to your own kitchen?" --Gaby Dalkin, WhatsGabyCooking.com and author of Absolutely Avocados The award-winning food bloggers from Muy Bueno and The Sweet Life have teamed up to create this all-new collection of Latin-American cocktails. Yvette and Vianney are known for Mexican and Latin-fusion recipes made with easy-to-find ingredients. Their cocktails--featuring fresh-squeezed juices and homemade mixers have been so popular that they decided to devote a whole book to them! Latin Twist is the first book to celebrate the signature cocktails of Latin America and Spain in one volume. It delves into the history of each country's special ingredients, wines, and liquors, and includes recipes for traditional drinks as well as the authors original creations. Try a luscious Passion Fruit Caipirinha from Brazil, Colombia's fruity Borgona, or Argentina's national drink, the deceptively simple Fernet con Cola.

By Susan E. Lester on June 2, 2015
Format: Hardcover
Having just booked a trip to Barcelona, I was in the perfect frame of mind to peruse “Latin Twist!” This joint creation of Vianney Rodriguez and Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack is filled to the brim with 97 tropical drinks and fresh flavor combinations from 19 different countries. One of the best features of this book is the map that shows which country each drink is derived from.

Another great feature of this book is the inclusion of recipes for Simple Syrup, Homemade Sweet-and-Sour Margarita Mix, and Fresh Coconut Milk. With summer just around the corner, you’re sure to find some great recipes for entertaining!

I love the cocktail recipes in this book. The number of ingredients in each is not overwhelming and they are easy to find. Also the pictures provide me with ideas on how to "fancy it up" for a party!

(I received this book as part of a promotion contest.) This is a well-written and generously-illustrated book of Latin American beverage recipes, primarily of the adult kind. I love the way it is presented by country (Mexico, Costa Rica, etc). Many countries have their own take on somewhat similar cocktails, separated primarily by the favorite local liquors. None of the recipes are particularly fussy, but I would have appreciated an appendix or something to describe some of the less-common liquors such as aguardiente from Colombia, and possible substitutes.

If you love wowing your guests with new, exciting cocktails or perfecting some of your most beloved cocktails, this is the book for you! It not only provides a mixologist tour of over 15 Latin American countries, but provides substitutes for ingredients that may be hard to find in the states. It can take you some time to get through all the yummy recipes, but so far I've loved getting to taste the Caipirinhas (had heard about them, but never tried one) & have added the Homemade Sweet-and-Sour Margarita Mix to my must have entertainment bag :) (I received a complimentary copy of this book for review, don't worry though, all rants about its fabulousness are my own.)
