My Mom has diabetes and although her doctors told her she could have a "glass of wine", now and then, she wasn't sure about all the other fun drinks out there. Now she is - Marlene and Chuck Koch not only do a great job of explaining the in's and out's of carbs and alcohol - but also have created a huge assortment of wonderful concoctions my Mom (and of course I) can enjoy - guilt-free! With both carbs and calories listed, there are so many to enjoy. I immediately made some of the Mock Kahlua over the weekend and was amazed. With only 2 grams of carb (and no sugar), instead of the usual 14 grams per ounce, it tastes even better than the real stuff. Sipping on a White Russian (only 3 grams of carb) was all it took to convince us both what a fun and great book this is. Last, if you know anyone cutting carbs, sugar (or even calories) this would make a terrific little gift!

Low-carb Cocktails is a pocket-sized recipe book of more than sixty low carbohydrate cocktails for those who enjoy drinks but are mindful of their waistlines. Including party favorites such as 4-carb Pina Colada and 7-carb Margarita, holiday treats such as 4-carp Eggnog and 6-carb Champagne Cocktail, and also featuring ultra-low carb or non-alcoholic versions of many recipes, Low-Carb Cocktails is easy-to-follow, quick-mix book especially needed in an era oversaturated with excessively fattening foods. All listed recipies are a snap to prepare, and include a calorie count as well as a net carb listing.

Highly recommended book by writers who actually know about food and cooking! Much better than the book by Markham who seems to miss the whole point.

This is a great book! I purchased the book about a year ago and was happy to find a large number of drinks listd! I plan on making the Mock Kahlua and Mock Grand Marnier as holiday gifts and the eggnog for Christmas. The book is on the smaller size, around the size of a checkbook, but I think its cute! I enjoy cocktail books and it was such a relief to find a cocktail book with a huge variety of drinks that fits into my low carb life style. I highly recommend it!!

P.S. I have given this book as gifts!

I was disappointed when i received my "Book" was just a little pamplet and the recipes were not that interesting. Sorry I bought it. If I was able to see the booklet before i purchased it, I would have not ordered it. I was so mad, I tossed it in the trash that night. Sorry about this unfavorable review but it's the truth.

The recipes looked pretty good but this is a very small, flimsy publication that was more of a pamphlet than a book. Since it was a gift, I was a little embarrased when it arrived.

I'm not sure why negative feedback was posted on 10/30/04 against Markham's book...when his book was released on 11/02/04. Sounds like someone needs to get on with their life!

"...holiday treats such as 4-carp Eggnog."

Are carps even necessary?
