About the Author

Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough are the award-winning authors of nineteen cookbooks. They are contributing editors to Eating Well and columnists for weightwatchers.com, and they contribute regularly to Cooking Light, Fine Cooking, the Washington Post, and other publications. When they're not teaching cooking on Holland America cruise ships, they live in rural Litchfield County, Connecticut, with a fairly sane collie named Dreydl.

Fig and Honey Smoothie

Makes 1 Drink

If you can't find fresh figs in your market, you can always order them through the mail from Harry & David (800-547-3033). Ask for Black Mission figs. They're dark purple and blend up into a beautiful lavender-colored drink.

4 large fresh figs (preferably Black Mission)
1/2 cup ice
3/4 cup vanilla yogurt (regular, low-fat, or non-fat)
2 tablespoons honey
Juice of 1/2 lemon (about 1 tablespoon)

Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.

Variations

Desert Fig Smoothie Omit the honey. Add 2 tablespoons tamarind syrup and 2 fresh, pitted dates before blending.

Fig and Apricot Smoothie Omit the honey. Add 2 tablespoons apricot jam and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon before blending.

Ginger Fig Smoothie Squeeze a 1-inch piece of fresh ginger in a garlic press to extract the juice. If the ginger is too large fit your garlic press, cut it into smaller pieces and repeat the process. Add ginger juice before blending.

Lemon Fig Smoothie Use the juice of 1 whole lemon. Use lemon yogurt instead of vanilla yogurt.

Mudslide

Makes 2 Drinks

A poolside classic that whips up in a jif. That's good, because once you start making them, your friends won't let you stop.

1 cup ice
1 cup chocolate ice cream
2 ounces vodka
2 ounces coffee liqueur (such as Kahlua)
2 ounces Irish cream liqueur (such as Baileys)

Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.

Variations

Cinnamon Mudslide Reduce the vodka to 1 ounce. Add 1 ounce cinnamon schnapps before blending.

Coffee Mudslide Omit the chocolate ice cream. Add 1 cup coffee ice cream before blending.

Double Irish Mudslide Omit the vodka. Add 2 ounces Irish whiskey before blending.

Oreo Mudslide Add 4 crumbled oreos before blending.

Triple Chocolate Mudslide Omit the coffee liqueur. Add 2 ounces dark creme de cacao and 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup before blending.

With over 750 drinks, running from malts to high balls, from nonalcoholic fruit punches to blitzed margaritas, this book will certainly get a work out on my patio this summer. Weinstein's originality--on parade in his ice cream book--cranks into full gear with a torrent of refreshing, cool, light, spirited (and not) selections. Bananas Foster Smoothie! Bangkok Buzz! A Purple Mango Bongo! And each drink has several variations behind it--check out the list for Bloody Mary alone (eight alcoholic and four non-alcoholic versions). And then comes winter--with toddies and hot rums. He's even got a Fig and Honey Smoothie for Hanukkah. OK, so I plan to make this a housewarming gift for every party I attend. But that way, I'll be assured of great drinks wherever I go.

Wow, these are great. I'll never throw a boring party again. I've made the Pink Elephant Punch and the Dim Sum Sling 3 times and my friends love them. Some of my friends don't "drink," so I made them a few of the smoothies and ice cream drinks from this book and they had just as much fun as the rest of us. I've just ordered the other books in the series and can't wait to get them.

This book has hundreds of killer drinks that will make just about any party a smash hit. There are rum drinks galore and even non-alchoholic drinks for the designated drivers in your crowd. The drinks come in a rainbow of colors, and if you don't have a set of tiki glasses to serve them in, that's okay - you can always get some on ebay!

Was a gift for my mother and she loves it. She said it was full of great ideas and things that she'd never even thought of so I suppose it's good for the adventurous. She's a 55 year old housewife who loves to entertain guests (not a crazed alcoholic! :) )if that happens to matter to anyone

Many Recipes ... There was nothing wrong with this book, however it was not the right book for me. What I wanted were punches for a wedding, and there were a few, what I found was a world of cocktails.

This was a great guide! I really enjoyed this book. The recipes were fancy, fun, and easy to prepare. This was a great alternative to boring mixed alcoholic drinks. We have used the recipes to make non-alcoholic drinks for the kids. We tried a lot of the summer drinks, and cant wait to try the hot toddies this winter! A really useful, no-nonesense drink book for amature and professional mixologists. I recommend it! Also, the Ultimate Shrimp book, which is part of this series was excellent. If you like great shrimp recipes, check it out!

I mean, there are the classics in here, like cosmos. But most of these are party drinks--you know, the cool drinks you wish you knew some bartender could whip up for you. The punches are the best. The best! In fact, this is my second copy, because my first got so water-logged after too many parties. What a fun book. It's not that stuffy "what a cocktail is supposed to be" book. I mean, that's great--but this is for parties, like the ones that need big pitchers of drinks, whether with alcohol or now.

It said it was brand new never used. However, it looks a bit more beat up than I would think if it was brand new. Nothing terrible but its going in an auction basket as a fundraiser so I am bit concerned it looks used. Especially with the 2 stickers that were on the front cover that I spent 15 minutes picking off.
