A friend and I recently hosted a "Girl's Getaway weekend" to Sunriver, Oregon. As a hostess gift the girls gave each of us "Sips and Apps". This is a great book to reference for fun cocktails and apps. It will inspire you to make unique creations that you may not normally attempt. It is impossible to choose what recipe to try first, they are all so tempting and proven to be fabulous! The apps are great and fun! All the recipes are super easy to follow and the photography is great I love being able to see what the finished product should look like. I now have a few books on hand for a last minuite hostess gift.

What a fun book. Lots of great appetizers and drinks. fun flavors. New twists on classics. I love some of the simple syrup ideas and drinks with herbs. Hoping to ue a couple or recipies for a party this weekend! Particularly like drink idea that can be prepped a pitcher at a time for a party so you aren't stuck mixing during our event.
Kathy Casey is a Seattle Icon - keeping it fresh and fun. If you are even just passing through Seattle Airport be sure and check out her Dish D'lish!

I haven't been so tempted by appetizer recipes in a while. My favorite was the crab cupcakes.
I also plan to make the hibiscus rum punch with spiced rum.

Kathy Casey has another perfect book of recipes. I never measured a drink until I tried cocktails in her other books, now I know why. They just taste better, like a real recipe...having the perfect ingredients measured well makes all the difference.

This book is wonderful! It is a great addition to any foodie's library, definitely taking a spin on traditional sips and apps and giving them a new twist without going overboard. A definite taste sensation!!!
Kudos!

Format: Hardcover
I received a copy of this book, and have paged through it a bit. Thus far, I am not impressed. The idea is good, and some of the appetizers look fairly tasty, but they are not really paired or integrated with the drinks in any meaningful way. As it so happens, this doesn't matter too much, as the drinks are rather uninspired. Time and again, the author bases her drinks around an infused vodka sweetened with syrup when a more interesting liqueur would make for a better drink (e.g. pear vodka instead of Poire Williams, citrus vodka instead of Cointreau, etc.). The drinks tend to profile a single flavor, such as coffee, vanilla, or a particular fruit, and generally don't offer much complexity. The garnishes make for attractive photography, but none of the drinks are anything I am interested in making. I give the book two stars for the appetizers, none for the cocktails.
