I’m not much of a drinker, but when we had neighbors in the other day, I thought it would be fun to make some kind of drink that everyone could enjoy. We pulled out Mix Shake Stir, a beautiful book full of cocktail recipes with a few appetizer recipes thrown in for fun. This book contains recipes from Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group which includes some of New York’s most well known restaurants.

Almost a coffee table book, it is so lovely to look at. Have written down a few of the recipes to try soon and some for later because they'll be more suitable in colder weather. I enjoy exploring new cocktails and this offers a wide variety and includes some recipes for the ingredients that go into the drinks: homemade limoncello, drunken cranberries, and lemon dust (lemon zest finely grated, then dehydrated and added to superfine sugar - imagine your beverage glass rimmmed in that!)
Very interesting recipes. Would have liked to see pictures with all the recipes instead of just some.
Stunning photographs and quite a variety of cocktails to test even the most experienced bartender.
Great drink sophisticated drink recipes!
