I couldn't get bored
on May 16, 2000
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.
