This book has recipes for white hot chocolate, which I found very useful as the mixes can be often overly sweet and not very interesting. Here, you can adjust recipes to suit your own tastes rather than use a powdered mix. There are also recipes for mulled wines, white or red, and many other types of drinks from egg nogs to tea punches and toddies.
You may not like all of these--I found some of them a bit sweet and gloppy but there were plenty of others that looked really good, like the white chocolates. If you are planning winter parties, this book could really provide some great recipes. If it's really cold on New Year's, a mulled wine could be a pleasant option in addition to the usual bubbly.
The book has a nice graphic quality to it and a nice layout and small touches like the ribbon book mark make it feel luxurious and beautiful and definitely gift-worthy. Would make a great gift along with some whiskey stones and spices and spirits for a single recipe, that you could use the built-in ribbon to mark.
If you're more the type to look towards brandy than brownies to warm yourself up when it gets nippier than a poorly trained chow-chow then this book will get plenty of use as you joyfully stain pages with tangerine juice. A number of additional support recipes are provided such as various infusions, snacks, and how to make marshmallows for your cocoa. Basic bar techniques are also covered in photographic detail.
I spent about four minutes in the store with this book before I decided to take it home (not without a quick stop at the store for the ingredients so my night would be filled with hot buttered rum laced with mace and vanilla bean).
This book was released YESTERDAY so everyone should get a peek at this beautifully photographed cookbook. Are you hosting a party in the upcoming weeks or in December? The party snacks, cocktails, punches and toddies and ciders are unique and tantalizing.
The Brandy Alexander was the first drink we tried over budgeting one night and it was so delicious! Even though I took my time drinking it, my husband insisted I drink it a little faster. I felt nice and warm afterwards. HA! It reminded me of my Chilean Christmas cocktail I make.
The next drink we tried was the Old-Fashioned which can be made with either bourbon or whiskey. We made it with both in order to try the flavors and we enjoyed both. I like that these are all easy to prepare and ideal for parties.
One of my favorite drinks though was this last one we tried. It was the perfect way to end the night after a great dinner.
Even though I did not get to the appetizers I cannot wait to try them.
