Have you tried mixing a Mojito? What about a Rusty Nail? Or a Cosmopolitan? With See Mix Drink, the first-ever cocktail book to offer instruction through info-graphics, making the drinks you love at home is as easy as, well, See, Mix, Drink.
This unique, illustrated guide graphically demonstrates how to make 100 of today's most popular cocktails. For each drink, color-coded ingredients are displayed in a line drawing of the appropriate glassware, alongside a pie chart that spells out the drink's composition by volume for intuitive mixing. No other cocktail book is this easy or fun. Instantly understandable 1-2-3 steps show exactly how each drink is prepared, and anecdotes, pronunciation guides, and photographs of the finished drinks will turn newbie bartenders into instant mixologists.
See Mix Drink can teach anyone how to mix a cocktail. Each drink is featured on two pages, with instructions that are concise and easy to follow. I love the little tidbits about the origins of every drink. There are mouthwatering pictures of the final product, of course, that make me want to mix them all. Well maybe not on the same day. The book includes recipes for 100 popular cocktails that will keep me busy for a while. And I am usually a red wine person. The graphics are very helpful - especially if you are a visual person like I am.
Whether you love to relax with a delicious mixed drink, or play the perfect host(ess), I am sure you'll find See Mix Drink useful and fun. The book will make a great grown-up gift, too. Please use responsibly.
