Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Martinis are the toast of the town! They're evocative. Sophisticated. Sensual. They appeal to those who are savvy. Suave. Confident. With liquid elegance and glamorous mystique, martinis launched today's discriminating cocktail culture and turned bartenders into "bar chefs."

101 Martinis goes beyond gin or vodka and vermouth classics to include adventurous recipes with rum, scotch, fruit infusions, liqueurs, ice cream, and even herbal supplements. Freshen up your martini repertoire and entertain stylishly with these intriguing variations for every season and occasion. Try standards like the Classic Martini and Dirty Martini or offbeat concoctions like the Lavendartini and the Ginseng Sling Martini. Serve Moroccan Mint Teanis for brunch or high tea, or Ultimate Chocolate Martinis for after-dinner cocktails. Enjoy Lemon Granita Martinis poolside or Hot Chocolate Martinis fireside. Serve the guys Men's Yang Martinis and the gals Women's Yin Martinis, or bring them together with Flirtinis!

Recommendations help you pair martinis with foods they'll complement—salty, sweet, spicy, or sour. Chill the glasses, get out the cocktail shaker, and become a bar chef yourself. Your quest for the ever-elusive "perfect martini" begins here.

From the Back Cover

"Kim Haasarud's culinary approach to the cocktail embraces fresh ingredients and a playful disregard for the ordinary. A fine addition to the home library and a great resource for a young bartender."
—Dale DeGroff, author of The Craft of the Cocktail

This book has a great variety of martini recipes - I'm usually a fan of basic dirty martinis, but there are so many options for interesting drinks in here, I'm looking forward to branching out and trying them all. It's a great book to use if you're throwing a party, since there are drinks in every color, flavor, and for every season. So far I've tried the Pineapple Champagne martini, which was really good. The book also has a ton of really beautiful photos.

Not all of the drinks in this book are technically Martini's, however it is nicely put together. The recipes are well written and the accompanying photos (and there's one for every drink) are beautifully done. I bought this for my roommate after having seen it at Crate and Barrel (I knew Amazon would have a better price, of course!) and she loved it. I haven't yet tried any of the drinks, but having taken Mixology and majored in Culinary Arts, I knew the recipes would produce tasty libations based on ingredient combinations.

As stated, however, some of the "martinis" are really just cocktails in martini glasses, but it's all in good fun anyway, isn't it?

I like 201 martinis better, but I don't regret buying this book. You don't own only one cook book, do you? Having multiple different recipe books on hand is, well, handy. I could compare features of the two books, but I would rather just encourage you to buy them both to get free super saver shipping and start experimenting with and enjoying your cocktails. Nice photos. But if you insist, it is the ingredient index and greater number of recipe's that makes me like 201 better.

This is a fun and beautiful little book. But it's not very user-friendly because there is no index. For instance, if you would like to find a recipe for a pumpkin martini or if you want to see if there are martini recipes with cranberry or lemon, you have to flip through the entire book. Who puts together a recipe book with no index?

This book is perfect as an accessory to someone's home bar. Its a little bigger than your standard DVD so it fits nicely anywhere. The book has beautiful pictures of each drink and has a lot of variety. I can't wait to try some of the concoctions thought up in this book!

Bought this book looking for something beyond a simple Lemon Drop martini and there's a fabulous variety to pick from here. Now I just need to decide which recipe to start with. Totally happy with this book.
