Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Relaxing, refreshing, and delicious, the mojito has emerged as a staple cocktail at summertime parties and bars across the country. This straightforward mix of rum, muddled mint leaves, and fresh-squeezed lime juice served over crushed ice with a splash of soda is the perfect drink for chilling out on a hot, sunny day.

But even though the mojito offers refreshment in nearly flawless form, there are plenty of other muddled masterpieces you can try. In 101 Mojitos & Other Muddled Drinks, Liquid Chef Kim Haasarud presents variations on the mojito and plenty of other flavorful options for every taste, including caipirinhas, smashes, margaritas, and mimosas—all full of ripe fruits and fresh herbs bruised and crushed to messy perfection. If you've got fresh ingredients on hand, you'll find a delicious use for them here. How about a Spiced Basil Mimosa with ginger honey syrup? If that's too sweet, why not try a cool Cucumber Gimlet? What's not to love in a Passion Fruit Lemon Drop martini, a Classic Mint Julep, or that old favorite the Old Fashioned?

When it comes to an unbeatable cocktail, simple is best. A few basic, high-quality ingredients mixed in the right quantities are all you really need for an ideal libation. The mojito and its muddled cousins are perfect examples, and they're sensationally simple and radically refreshing.

From the Back Cover

"It's refreshing, pretty to look at, and delicious. It has its roots in Cuba and was a favorite of Ernest Hemingway in the 1930s. It is believed to have evolved from a drink back in the 1500s called the 'El Draque' (meaning dragon) named by English pirate Richard Drake, who created it with aguardiente, sugar, lime, and mint."

By David Montgomery VINE VOICE on October 18, 2011
Format: Hardcover
When I picked up this book, my first reaction was, "How can there be 101 recipes for Mojitos? That's insane." But then I noticed the subtitle: "and other muddled drinks." Okay, that makes sense. Muddled drinks are very popular these days, and there's an endless variety of them.

Muddling is a technique of combining ingredients in a glass by pressing down on them with a muddler, a type of pestle that's usually shaped like a baseball bat.

Author Kim Hassarud is the founder of Liquid Architecture, a beverage consulting firm, and has created signature cocktails for several top venues and brands. So she knows what she's talking about. Her recipes are mostly straightforward, without a lot of odd ingredients or preparations. She does use wine in several of her cocktails, though -- a trend I haven't gotten behind.

She also uses a lot of fresh fruit in her drinks, which is exactly what you'd expect for muddled drinks. She also includes nuts, herbs, cucumbers, etc. for some potentially interesting flavor combinations. (I didn't try any of the more exotic ones, as I didn't have the ingredients on hand. But I'm filing them away for future reference.)

Muddled drinks have become something of a bane to most bartenders -- they take a long time to make and tend to be messy. And don't even think about ordering a muddled drink at a place like TGI Fridays. You'll probably get nothing more than a blank stare in return. (And if they do try to make you a Mojito or Caipirinha, who knows what you'll get.)

The good news is, making muddled drinks at home isn't difficult. In fact, it's kind of fun. With a book like 101 Mojitos, a muddler*, and a little bit of liquor, you'll soon be off and muddling!

*Technically you don't even need a muddler: the end of a wooden spoon or the handle of a rolling pin will work in a pinch.

This was the first book by Kim Haasarud that I bought. I loved it so much I bought the rest of her 101 books. She knows how to create amazing cocktails. Out of all of the cocktails of hers I have made so far 99% of them have been a hit. I reach for her books when I want a new drink before any other. I have had fun muddling, stirring, and shaking (not to mention drinking) my way through them.

I'm a fan of mojitos and figured I'd branch out and try some other muddled drinks. Armed with a wooden spoon (and later a real muddler), I've made some tasty drinks from this book. I have not been disappointed yet. Recipes range from the traditional mojito to the more unique pineapple ginger mojito. With a few different types of alcohol and simple syrup on hand, I'm always ready to make a fun mixed drink with whatever fresh fruit is in season. Great resource!

No, the recipes are not all mojitos. The focus of the book is on drinks using muddled fresh ingredients. It has plenty of great variants on the traditional mojito, but also on other classics. I'd buy the book just for the recipe for a real Mint Julep or the Margarita using freshly muddled peppers!

My husband and I both love the recipes in this book. They are easy to understand and quite delicious. It is a a great beginners book or even just a good recipe book. I clearly explains the difference between muddling and crushing fruits and hers and why to do one and not the other.

If you enjoy drinking a mojito, but are just tired of the rum/mint/simple syrup versions - then try this book. It provides a lot of recipes for mojito variations and other drinks - I'm sure you'll find something you like. My only caveat - I find that mojitos are warm weather drinks, so buy the book now and be ready to serve your mojito variations in the summer.

Good collection of drinks,. I would use more of the muddling ingredients than the recipe calls for, but then again it all comes down to personal tastes. Good starting point to develop your own style of muddled drinks. Have fun...

great book of recipes. never knew there were so many kinds of muddled drinks! goal this summer is to make every recipe at least once! too bad you cant give 4.99 stars instead of 5 only because some of the recipes use ingredients that are kinda weird.
