About the Author

Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough are the award-winning authors of nineteen cookbooks. They are contributing editors to Eating Well and columnists for weightwatchers.com, and they contribute regularly to Cooking Light, Fine Cooking, the Washington Post, and other publications. When they're not teaching cooking on Holland America cruise ships, they live in rural Litchfield County, Connecticut, with a fairly sane collie named Dreydl.

Fig and Honey Smoothie

Makes 1 Drink

If you can't find fresh figs in your market, you can always order them through the mail from Harry & David (800-547-3033). Ask for Black Mission figs. They're dark purple and blend up into a beautiful lavender-colored drink.

4 large fresh figs (preferably Black Mission)
1/2 cup ice
3/4 cup vanilla yogurt (regular, low-fat, or non-fat)
2 tablespoons honey
Juice of 1/2 lemon (about 1 tablespoon)

Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.

Variations

Desert Fig Smoothie Omit the honey. Add 2 tablespoons tamarind syrup and 2 fresh, pitted dates before blending.

Fig and Apricot Smoothie Omit the honey. Add 2 tablespoons apricot jam and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon before blending.

Ginger Fig Smoothie Squeeze a 1-inch piece of fresh ginger in a garlic press to extract the juice. If the ginger is too large fit your garlic press, cut it into smaller pieces and repeat the process. Add ginger juice before blending.

Lemon Fig Smoothie Use the juice of 1 whole lemon. Use lemon yogurt instead of vanilla yogurt.

Mudslide

Makes 2 Drinks

A poolside classic that whips up in a jif. That's good, because once you start making them, your friends won't let you stop.

1 cup ice
1 cup chocolate ice cream
2 ounces vodka
2 ounces coffee liqueur (such as Kahlua)
2 ounces Irish cream liqueur (such as Baileys)

Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.

Variations

Cinnamon Mudslide Reduce the vodka to 1 ounce. Add 1 ounce cinnamon schnapps before blending.

Coffee Mudslide Omit the chocolate ice cream. Add 1 cup coffee ice cream before blending.

Double Irish Mudslide Omit the vodka. Add 2 ounces Irish whiskey before blending.

Oreo Mudslide Add 4 crumbled oreos before blending.

Triple Chocolate Mudslide Omit the coffee liqueur. Add 2 ounces dark creme de cacao and 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup before blending.


More About the Author

One of America's premier food experts, Bruce Weinstein's training began at Johnson and Wales Culinary Institute. He then worked as an advertising creative director specializing in food and drink clients such as Lea and Perrins, Bols, Bacardi, and José Cuervo. This culinary/creative expertise led to his first book, Frozen Drinks With or Without the Buzz (Clarkson Potter, 1997).

The Ultimate Ice Cream Book soon followed in 1999, published by Morrow, and has sold over 250,000 copies to date. The ice cream title was the impetus for his best-selling "ultimate" series that now includes The Ultimate Party Drink Book (2000), The Ultimate Candy Book (2000), The Ultimate Shrimp Book (2002), The Ultimate Brownie Book (2002), The Ultimate Potato Book (2003), The Ultimate Muffin Book (2004), The Ultimate Chocolate Cookie Book (2004), The Ultimate Frozen Dessert Book (2005), and The Ultimate Peanut Butter Book (2005).

In March, 2007, HarperCollins brought out his magnum opus: The Ultimate Cook Book: 900 New Recipes, Thousands of Ideas. Chosen as a main selection of the Book of the Month Club this title has been touted by the likes of Jacques Pepin and Bette Midler. January 2009 saw the publication of Pizza: Grill It, Bake It, Love It, followed by Cooking Know-How, a technique driven cookbook by John Wiley in April, 2009. This book won the Gourmand International Cook Book award for best American cook book in the easy recipe category.

Along the way, other titles include Cooking for Two (2004), a new way to cook for American's burgeoning small households, as well as Grilling Essentials (2002) for the Cooking Club of America, The Stonewall Kitchen Cookbook (2001), and Dr. Phil's Weight Loss Solution Cookbook (2004).

In 2010 Bruce will have three new books published. Stewart Tabori, and Chang will publish Ham: An Obsession With The Hind Quarter in March then publish Bruce's first knitting book, Knits Men Want, in April. In May Simon & Schuster will publish REAL FOOD HAS CURVES - a 7-step plan to get off processed food.

With over 750 drinks, running from malts to high balls, from nonalcoholic fruit punches to blitzed margaritas, this book will certainly get a work out on my patio this summer. Weinstein's originality--on parade in his ice cream book--cranks into full gear with a torrent of refreshing, cool, light, spirited (and not) selections. Bananas Foster Smoothie! Bangkok Buzz! A Purple Mango Bongo! And each drink has several variations behind it--check out the list for Bloody Mary alone (eight alcoholic and four non-alcoholic versions). And then comes winter--with toddies and hot rums. He's even got a Fig and Honey Smoothie for Hanukkah. OK, so I plan to make this a housewarming gift for every party I attend. But that way, I'll be assured of great drinks wherever I go.

Wow, these are great. I'll never throw a boring party again. I've made the Pink Elephant Punch and the Dim Sum Sling 3 times and my friends love them. Some of my friends don't "drink," so I made them a few of the smoothies and ice cream drinks from this book and they had just as much fun as the rest of us. I've just ordered the other books in the series and can't wait to get them.

This book has hundreds of killer drinks that will make just about any party a smash hit. There are rum drinks galore and even non-alchoholic drinks for the designated drivers in your crowd. The drinks come in a rainbow of colors, and if you don't have a set of tiki glasses to serve them in, that's okay - you can always get some on ebay!

I mean, there are the classics in here, like cosmos. But most of these are party drinks--you know, the cool drinks you wish you knew some bartender could whip up for you. The punches are the best. The best! In fact, this is my second copy, because my first got so water-logged after too many parties. What a fun book. It's not that stuffy "what a cocktail is supposed to be" book. I mean, that's great--but this is for parties, like the ones that need big pitchers of drinks, whether with alcohol or now.

This was a great guide! I really enjoyed this book. The recipes were fancy, fun, and easy to prepare. This was a great alternative to boring mixed alcoholic drinks. We have used the recipes to make non-alcoholic drinks for the kids. We tried a lot of the summer drinks, and cant wait to try the hot toddies this winter! A really useful, no-nonesense drink book for amature and professional mixologists. I recommend it! Also, the Ultimate Shrimp book, which is part of this series was excellent. If you like great shrimp recipes, check it out!

Was a gift for my mother and she loves it. She said it was full of great ideas and things that she'd never even thought of so I suppose it's good for the adventurous. She's a 55 year old housewife who loves to entertain guests (not a crazed alcoholic! :) )if that happens to matter to anyone
