Editorial Reviews

Review

"A must-read for Southerners and Southerners-at-heart come fall." ― Southern Living

"A lavish lifestyle guide and cookbook that’s a paean to her native Dixie." ― USA Today

“Peppered with tales from her own Nashville, Tenn., upbringing, Reese Witherspoon’s first book features mouthwatering recipes, tried-and-true style tips, and entertaining expertise. Come for the best advice she received from Dolly Parton, and stay for her hot-roller hair tutorial, y’all.” ― InStyle

“You may not have known you needed a charming lifestyle guide from Reese Witherspoon, but, trust us on this one, you do. Out this month, Whiskey in a Teacup is part etiquette primer, part cookbook, and part hot-roller how-to, all told in the actress/producer’s sharp, exuberant voice.” ― Marie Claire

In Whiskey in a Teacup, Reese shares deeply personal stories about her life in the South and offers up her best advice on entertaining and life in general (yes, there's even a detailed description on how to hot roller your hair, Reese Witherspoon style!). It contains nearly 50 recipes, making it the perfect book to buy for yourself, and also a friend.” ― PopSugar

“OK, so you can’t party with Reese Witherspoon, but you can party like Reese Witherspoon—thanks to this part memoir, part guide to southern living from Elle Woods herself. The gorgeously shot book features tips on entertaining, as well as recipes, beauty hacks, and totally random but necessary lessons like how to catch a frog with your bare hands.” ― Cosmopolitan

"Reese Witherspoon, resident ray of sunshine, wrote a book that’s as charming as she is. In Whiskey in a Teacup she shares everything from how she does her hair to her grandmother Dorothea’s best recipes. If you love Reese, you’ll love her book."

 HelloGiggles

"Whiskey In A Teacup, as the title suggests, is a dose of sweet medicine with a kick, and it's a wonderful guide to entertaining, decorating, and celebrating, in the style of one of the nation's most beloved actresses." ― Bustle

"Buy two copies—this will be the go-to hostess gift of the season." Apartment Therapy

“It is hard not to respond to actor-producer-writer-entrepreneur Witherspoon’s southern cooking and lifestyle guide, presented with warmth and no small amount of wit. Many features attract, such as sidebars on everything from valuable tips for hosting to the specifics of hot-rolling hair. Nearly 50 recipes and 8-plus menus will suit almost any celebration, gathering, and occasion… Connecting it all is Witherspoon's very hospitable narrative, sharing stories of growing up, family, and traditions that many will relate to.”

 

  ― Booklist

“Actress and book club host Witherspoon pays tribute to her Southern roots in this charming collection of recipes, how-to’s, and personal stories… Fried chicken, ribs (in her brother’s Tennessee barbecue sauce), and pulled pork sliders with bourbon sauce are highlights among the many enticing dishes… Readers looking to make a foray into Southern cooking and etiquette will find Witherspoon an enthusiastic guide.” ― Publishers Weekly

“Proud of her Southern heritage, actress Witherspoon, founder of the retail brand Draper James and media company Hello Sunshine, unabashedly spreads the Southern women's ethos of graciousness and hospitality… Her sense of humor and ability to poke fun at herself shine in childhood anecdotes (and photos of her hot-roller technique)… Sure to be popular with Witherspoon's fans, this pleasant book could have wider appeal to anyone interested in modern Southern living and style.” ― Library Journal

About the Author

Reese Witherspoon, award-winning actress and producer, has created the kinds of unforgettable characters that connect with critics and audiences alike. She won an Academy Award® for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk the Line and was later nominated in that same category for Wild in 2014, which she also produced. Her role in Wild also garnered Golden Globes, SAG, Critics’ Choice, and BAFTA Awards nominations. Other film credits include Sweet Home Alabama, Legally Blonde, and Election. She has executive produced and starred in two seasons of HBO’s critically acclaimed Big Little Lies, with the first season winning eight Emmy Awards, four Golden Globes, four Critics’ Choice Awards, and two SAG Awards. In addition to her acting and producer roles, Witherspoon is an entrepreneur. In 2016, she established Hello Sunshine, a media brand and content company dedicated to female authorship and storytelling across all platforms. In 2015, she launched Draper James, a retail brand with a focus on fashion, accessories, and home décor inspired by the American South. She is an advocate and activist for women’s issues across the globe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, funny, heart-warming book!
By Booklover on September 24, 2018
I really love this book! It is so, so beautiful. Reese recounts stories from her childhood, of her parents and grandparents, and those closest to her, all mixed in with some really funny anecdotes. Interspersed throughout are menus and recipes, I've tried the Summer Squash Casserole and it was SO SO GOOD!!! Also made the Refresher Cocktail (ahem, the alcohol version), also delicious!

There are lots of fun additions, like party playlists, sidebars including a Southern "pronunciation key" (haha!) and even little notes in the recipes that I (an avid cookbook reader) hadn't heard of before: like an ingenious trick to make perfect biscuits. Who knew?!

If you love Reese's films, Southern food, a good laugh, beautiful photography, and a to-die-for bright pink spine on your coffee table, then this book is most certainly for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Whiskey in a Teacup Review
By Sadie&#39;s Nest on September 20, 2018
Instantly, I was smitten with Whiskey in a Teacup. Reading it is like cheerfully walking down Familiar Lane; pleasant and homey with an emphasis on family and the good times. It reminds me of a single volume of an annual subscription of Southern Living Magazine through the life and eyes of Reese Witherspoon. She gives family recipes (which I always appreciate) and party menu lists for year round celebratory occasions. Do I want to have a Kentucky Derby Party complete with pretty dresses and oversized hats? Yes, I do. And I want to serve Reese’s suggested Mint Juleps and Chocolate Derby Pecan Pie. She includes entertaining anecdotes from her childhood and endearing memories of her grandparents, mom, brother, family and friends. She made me want to put on my pearl necklace and get a dog. Reese had me reminiscing about my own grandparents’ huge garden and my grandpa’s work habits, from dawn to dusk even after retirement. In such a BFF kind of way, Reese takes her personal sharing even further- by suggesting music play lists for events like a “Southern Party” and road trips. She gives instructions for how to use hot rollers, and diagrams for how to set casual, as well as, formal table settings (with clever ways to remember). She gives hostess tips, attendee advice, flea market strategies, book reading suggestions, and gift ideas for a variety of occasions. I too love monograms Reese! It is an art under-appreciated in the north, and so is wall paper, soul sister.

5.0 out of 5 stars I hope she writes another!
By vera.owens on September 20, 2018
As soon as I received my pre-order, I dove in head first! I’m already completely immersed, the content is so endearing and the photos are gorgeous!

This book is a lifestyle guide wrapped in a cozy blanket. You’ll get her awesome tried and true tips and tricks, mouth watering recipes, a side of wit, all presented with the warmth of southern charm.

There’s also my favorite chapter, ‘The Perfect Bookclub’ paired with a bookclub menu.. I mean, just that chapter alone: Sold!

Its safe to say that delicious fried chicken, a monogrammed scrapbook and hot rollers are in my near future!
