Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Writer and James Beard Award-winning photographer Petzke (Espresso, Chocolate) swings his lens south to offer a thoughtful take on Mexico's signature liquor. After debunking myths and offering a timeline of tequila's evolution and rise in popularity, Petzke gets to the good stuff, offering a number of uses for the versatile spirit. Of course there are margaritas, but Petzke also offers variations on mojitos, greyhounds, Bloody Marys and even the Negroni, which should have tequila aficionados beefing up their selection of mixers (it should be noted, however, that this is no buying guide). For those who prefer to sup rather than sip, Petzke offers recipes like an easy Grapefruit-Tequila Granita to be spooned over raw oysters, roast chicken covered with a rich reposado tequila mole, and pork shoulder slow-cooked with blanco tequila, limes, garlic and other spices to yield succulent pulled pork. It would be easy for Petzke's guide to go overboard or devolve into an impractical novelty act, but his restraint and common sense make sure the text stays sober while encouraging readers to drink up.

In the crowded world of culinary texts, this is a rare gem. The book showcases amazing photographs (the author also just happens to be an award-winning photographer), knowledgeable yet concise commentary and a full-range of uses for everyone's favorite hangover inducer. All in all, this is a satisfying, uncomplicated and sublime way to quench one's thirst.

This book is really far too small to be considered a coffee table book... but the photos are gorgeous. Which is what you'd expect from a professional photographer. What really makes this book unusual is that it's also useful. Along with the beautiful photos, you get a little history of tequila and some interesting recipes. If you're interested in tequila, this is a nice intro.

The quality of this book was not 'new', the cover edge was bent and their are scratches. I was going to give it as a gift and now cannot because it looks used.
