Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book has a lot of recipes in it. The author not only gives you recipes but takes time in the beginning to go over the basics with you. We get the rundown of what glassware to use, shakers, utensils and he even goes over the simple syrups that you will be using for the recipes. He really broke it all down for you in the beginning before throwing you right into the recipes. I found a lot of great recipes that I wanted to try but unfortunately wasn't able to find the ingredients needed. I'm sure you can find them in other areas but with where I live, obtaining items like cacao nibs just isn't happening unless I order them online. However, a lot of the recipes sounded delicious and I was able to try a few of them with ingredients I was able to find out here. I tried one called Orange Dreamsicle which was a creamy orange vodka and it tasted just like the popsicle. I'd say that one was my favorite. This is a great book to have on hand if you are interested in creating your own liqueur. Not only is it self gratifying to know that you made it but I think it tastes a lot better compared to the stuff you buy on a shelf that's been sitting there for who knows how long. It would also be an amazing holiday/housewarming gift to give someone their own custom made liqueur. I'd love to revisit the book again when I'm living in an area with more shopping options available.
The book is great. Easy to follow recipes, great photos.
