I have stacks of cookbooks that I love and another stack of entertaining and decorating books that I reference.
This exquisite, inexpensive book has all that in one. Love it for myself but am also using it for gifts!

Drink recipes are pretty good but think the food recipes could be better. Best part of the book is the photographs so maybe good coffee table book.

It is probably my fault for not reading the description better before ordering, but this is mainly a "how to make mixed drinks" book with a few recipes for food in the back. I was expecting a lot more ideas for parties, like decorating, etc., and more recipes for party food.

Speaking of those summertime parties, here's a book that is sure to draw interest from anyone who enjoys whiling away a relaxed afternoon or evening on an old-fashioned porch. That's exactly the concept of "Porch Parties: Cocktail Recipes and Easy Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining" by Denise Gee ($16.95, Chronicle, 144 pp.).

Even though the basics of this book are cocktails, it goes the extra mile in weaving its story of relaxing on the porch. This one will have you swaying back and forth in your chair as if you were in an old rocker as you turn the pages. I really enjoyed the interesting sidebars that accompany each recipe and the author goes into extra detail in setting the scene for these outings with hints on planning, appetizers, décor and more.

We all like summer outings.. well most of us do! This has some really great classic recipes for drinks and some nice decorating tips for fun outdoor get togethers. We can all look on the internet for ideas, but it's kind of nice to have a hardcover book of ideas.

Cute book! I've been waiting to purchase this for a long time because it was on back order a lot. Finally I was able to purchase as a gift for my mother in laws birthday. As we both like to entertain we really enjoyed the tips and suggestions in this book. Super fun for summer get togethers. I love the recipes for large batch of a particular cocktails so I can enjoy the party too, not spend the day making drinks. Fun book!

My only real issue with this recipe book is that it's too short. There's nothing terribly exciting or bold in here, but there are a lot of great ideas for drinks (and a few for snacks). There's also a page dedicated to garnishes, which I thought was nice. I'm one of those people that loves to flip through their cookbooks repeatedly and just look at the pictures like a four year old- and the pictures don't disappoint.
