Delish Ultimate Cocktails: Why Limit Happy to an Hour?

Hearst Home. Oct. 2020. 256p. ISBN 9781950785155. $25. COOKING
A book of cocktail recipes designed by the team at, this title is a visual treat. Cocktail purists may quibble with some details of the “classic” recipes (the use of vodka in a martini or grenadine in a mai tai, for example), but the appeal of seeing drinks garnished with minidoughnuts or trays of beautiful, orange negroni shots is undeniable. It is easy to see many of the drinks suggested being enjoyed at parties, and that feels like the point. On the other hand, it is a little jarring to see a chapter of drinks for girls’ night so dominated by pink and sweet, and readers might wish that the authors recommended particular brands of spirits. Still, there is no lack of inspiration to be found in these pages, even if those who are more serious about cocktails might be better served seeking out classic recipes elsewhere.
VERDICT A colorful cocktail recipe book that is sure to provide fun ideas for entertaining.
