I am a Southern transplant who moved from Mississippi to San Francisco, and I am always in search of the nearest and dearest bon vivant who'll appreciate the art of entertaining--and will teach me how to perfect it. This book has ended my search and made my year. Because I have met the best in Denise Gee and her lovely book, Southern Cocktails. I've not only made the drinks (most recently, the beloved 'apple joujou' for friends), but I've also read over and over again what I call fabulous "cocktales"--engaging stories about the drinks themselves. Thanks to Ms. Gee, the writing is as delicious as the recipes she serves up to her readers. There's more than drinks to enjoy here, too; Gee introduces us to some of the best little bites I've ever tasted. And Mr. Peacock's photography is so stunning you'll want to rip out the pages and frame them in your kitchen. Life doesn't get any sweeter than this. Buy this book for your friends' birthdays, for housewarming presents, and for yourself. Your bar--and your parties--will never be the same.

As any southern hostess would do, I needed some fun books to add to my bar area. I didn't want any old books though. I wanted books that I (and my guests) would actually like and flip through. This one is my favorite! It has easy to make cocktails and is illustrated nicely. I recommend it!

We've enjoyed several of these cocktails and appetizers, it even inspired the cocktail hour at our wedding. We've also been giving this book as a gift for years now. I make it a point to keep a few on-hand for just that reason.

I've been reading this cookbook and it is very informative, entertaining and just delightful. In general, I enjoy reading cookbooks but this one is displayed and arranged to be read as a regular book or referenced as a recipe book and/or guideline to stocking a proper bar. I would highly recommend this book as a hostess gift, regular gift or for yourself. In addition, it arrived earlier than I expected and in excellent condition.

I don't buy cookbooks or how to make drink books. However, this little book is the exception to the rule. Has a little history about different alcohols, explains different glasses & barware essentials, and it gives all this information with humor. This was very fun to read, had recipes for drinks and a few recipes for finger foods to serve too.

I am a serious cook and frequent hostess with hundreds of cookbooks. This little gem is one I turn to constantly. The drink recipes are wonderful and wide-ranging in ingredients and presentation. The appetizer recipes are fabulous (try the blackeye pea con queso for a true taste of the South), easy to prepare and perfect with a cocktail. I am giving this book to every bride and college graduate who will be beginning to think of doing serious entertaining. We pride ourselves here in the South on the quality of the food and drink we serve to family and friends. This book has added a number of recipes to my repertoire that are always received with oohs and ahhs. I highly recommend it!
