Liquid Architecture 101 Mojitos and Other Muddled Drinks by Kim Hassarud

The warm heat of the Summer sun is still upon us. Sultry, humid nights spent on decks and patios are always present. We crave good conversation, time spent with friends and family and a cold drink.

Kim Hassarud has created a wonderful treasure trove of cocktail recipes that will satisfy your every drink craving with her book, 101 Mojitos & Other Muddled Drinks ($16.95). It's a wonderful reference guide, how-to and very easy to follow. For the Fourth of July we had a neighborhood block party and I mixed up a batch of Kim's classic Mojito. It was a smash hit! I've made pitchers and single dose drinks of it ever since. Everyone wants the recipe. This book is not just for summertime either. It is loaded with drink recipes for the cooler months too. There are recipes for margaritas, crushes and grappas too.

Haasarud іѕ a James whiskers-honored mixologist, author, аnd beverage consultant. Founder οf Liquid Architecture and its very cool blog, shе creates signature cocktails inspired by items that are high quality, market-fresh ingredients. She believes that cocktails should also be culinary experiences, full of flavors, aromas, garnishes and textures. Hassaraud will teach you how to make a drink come alive. They will be the hit of the afternoon, night, party or whatever the occasion.
