This book features cocktails to ring in the cozy season and see readers through the dark days of winter, with chapters dedicated to “Party Provisions,” “Winter Warmers,” “Classics,” “Sparkling Cocktails,” and “The Spirit of the Season.” There are familiar classics like hot apple cider spiked with bourbon, and fun new options like the appropriately named “Let It Snow,” an absinthe and creme de menthe cocktail that looks like a frosty cup of snow. Recipes range from simple easy-to-make cocktails with basic ingredients, to expert-level drinks that require a little more prep and planning. Winter- and holiday-themed names like “Nipping at Your Nose” and “Christmas Time Is Here” give these cocktails a festive flair. Recipes are indexed by drink name and base ingredients, making it easy to find the perfect winter cocktail for a drink at home.
VERDICT If readers are looking to serve Christmas in a glass, this book will have the perfect cocktail. Cool spritzes, hot toddies, coffee drinks, punches, and a solid selection of standards make this title worth consulting when stocking the holiday bar.
