The book itself is lovely enough to give as a gift...filled with beautifully-enticing photographs and well-written instructions. Most of the recipes require some time for the liqueur to set...but the end result will be worth the wait. --Suite101.com
Praise for Good Spirits: Very good, accessible cocktail recipes, delivered with a chaser of humor, history, criticism and insight. --Newsday
Praise for Good Spirits: In this gorgeous guide to every cocktail imaginable, Rathbun breaks out the 12 chapters not by ingredients but by useful, or at least amusing, categories. The scores of full-color photos are thirst inducing and add an irresistible retro charm to the proceedings. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

1. I've made three recipes using, for two of them, fruits (blackberries and pomegranates) from my own garden. The third was a coffee liqueur which is still in the 'resting before tasting' stage. But those that have been tried and tasted -- marvelous!
2. Lovely photographs accompany each recipe -- as they should. No skimping on photography or paper here.
3. Quite an assortment both in ingredients and in bitterness and sweetness. You'll probably find several of your favorites here.
1. I'm beginning to think of forming a one-woman protest in front of publishing houses that use standard binding for cookbooks. Think, ladies and gentlemen, think of the cook who is trying to assemble ingredients and follow a recipe all the while holding a book open with one hand because it refuses to lay flat. Is spiral binding really too much to ask?
In spite of my binding complaint, the recipes for liqueurs in this small volume are just too good to miss. So, if you're a fan of good liqueurs, and if you've been astonished at the recent price hikes for your favorites, try making it for yourself and your friends. If I can do it, you're a cinch!
She also made the Strawberry Gold which was amazing and now I have a batch of that steeping with more limoncello.
For the reviewer who said it was too expensive - if you have a craft store or big store like Walmart, you can find large and small bottles there. I got my half-gallon mason jars at Michaels crafts and my smaller jars at Dollar Tree, GoodWill, and by asking people to save empty smaller bottles like for beer and bitters.
For the reviewer who said you can do better online. Sure. I have a whole folder of bookmarks for that sort of thing - cocktails, mixers, infusions, and so forth. But it's nice to read someone's work, to hold a book in my hands, and enjoy the pictures without having to be in front of a computer screen.
For anyone who isn't sure - give it a shot. It's a fun little collection of recipes and you might get inspired to concoct your own. I'm going to try doing spiced rum with mulling spices and see how that turns out!
This is one book I'll come back to again and again!
