"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."
What we thought: This is a fun and in depth look at mixology. It is easy to read and the illustrations are great! I love the colorful photos and the huge variety of drinks to cover every taste. The index is in an easy to read cross reference style which makes finding the perfect drink a breeze. This book would make a great gift for the mixologist in your life or a great addition to your bar if you're planning on serving lots of holiday drinks over the next few months.
