Easy to use. Adorable design. Delicious drink recipes using fresh ingredients. This book makes me want to have a party every weekend so I can try every drink. It would also make a great gift for a hostess, wedding shower, birthday, etc. I love it!

This is a phenomenal mini recipe book for cocktails, and definitely easy to use. I've made a few of the recipes and they are great! My only complaint is that the pin holding the book together is a little too far in so you can't see the first ingredient's name on a lot of the pages. But the recipes are clear and that's all that matters!

I put these in the stockings of my adult children for Christmas. The glossy pages will protect them from any drips or spills during use and the detailed descriptions and illustrations are just great. I love the swatchbook design makes the ease of use especially appealing!

Mrs Lilien's Cocktail Swatchbook is perfectly designed to use. It lays flat on the counter and stays open to the page you want. If you splash on it - you just wipe it off - the plastic coated pages will last for years. I love to browse through the drinks - you don't need to read - everything is presented in the pictures. For example "Mrs Lemonade" has a picture of a blender, a lemon, mint leaves, Grey Goose vodka and simple syrup - a single glance tells you what this will taste like! She also includes tips for presentation of the drink - for "Mrs Lemonade" she shows pictures of mason jar glasses with yellow striped straws - darling!
The visual presentation really is the heart of this awesome little book. Everything you need to get to make the drink is right there in a glance - the quantities are written right under each picture. My husband was sold when he saw that she used his brand of gin (Hendricks!) the swatchbook is divided into 3 sections; the recipes in the first section serves 4, the second section serves 1 and the 3rd section serves 6plus. A nice touch because if you're just making a drink for 1 or 2 people in the evening -you don't want to try and figure out how to cut down a drink intended for a crowd.
Full disclosure -I knew the author a few years ago when she was living in Hawaii but that doesn't mean she hasn't produced a great little cocktail guide! Be sure to look on the back side of each recipe for a tip about that recipe written in rhyme! This book really is so cute and inexpensive, which makes it a perfect gift for anyone who likes cocktails. I've already purchased 2 copies and plan to buy more to keep on hand(it comes shrink-wrapped)for when I need a fast hostess gift.

If you have never read Mrs. Lilien's blog then you are already behind but buying this book will help you catch up in a hurry. The cocktails are fantastic and I find myself drinking heavily because they taste so good. They are super easy to prepare and if you are having a party, your cocktails from Mrs. Lilien will make YOU the life of the party!

I saw this on Kate Spade's blog and it was even better than I expected. It is even color coded by how many guests it will serve. Very user friendly!

Okay, I find myself going to a lot of ladies parties, which frankly, is a good predicament to be in. The Mrs Lilien cocktail swatchbook and a good bottle of booze (or simple syrup, grenadine and other fixings) is a perfect hostess and bachelorette gift. It's so fun to use and easy to understand, so we quite often find ourselves whipping up a new cocktail right then and there! I couldn't recommend it more.

I was looking for a gift for a friend, something nice but not too expensive, sort of "symbolic gift" and I think that this is great idea:
nice to read, colorful, also looks great if you leave it on the table during a party - your friends will not resist and open it!

I went to a Chinese gift exchange (where people bring a $10 gift and pull numbers and can trade gifts) and this gift went over so well! Everyone loved it! The drink recipes have a mix of the classics plus fun, new ones. Its design was fun, simple, and stylish.

This is the perfect hostess gift. It's pretty, it's fun, and paired with a bottle of booze or cute cocktail napkins & stirrers- Perfection! Stock up on these Swatchbooks and you will always be prepared for hostess gifts. Much more fun than a bottle of wine!
