My long-term partner in cocktail making, Drink of the Week, has a book out called DIY Cocktails. They have been so gracious as to give me a copy to give away to you guys!
In DIY Cocktails, the editors of Drink of the Week not only give you plenty of recipes to try out like the Tomato Martini or the Italian Sparkling Citrus Punch, they teach you how to make your own cocktails using a system of ratios. But don’t worry, this isn’t about math, it’s about drinking! In fact, the book works a lot like the Basil Mojito we just made up, where you substitute one ingredient for another–in our case basil instead of mint–for your own creative spin on the drink. DIY Cocktails also has lots of cool “mixology” tips, like what edible flowers make great garnishes or how to make your own cocktail onions.
So! I have one copy of this book to give away. To win, leave a comment below telling me about your favorite drink. In spirit of the book, I’ll pick the one that sounds the most creative.
Make sure to leave your e-mail so I can inform you if you won. I will also put the winner up as an update on this post.
I will announce the winner on Wednesday, April 13, 2011.
We have a winner! Congratulations to Christy Gardner for telling us about her Scurvy No More, which sounds quite tasty. We’ll be getting the copy of DIY Cocktails in the mail to her soon.
Thank you to all the people who entered the giveaway. I really enjoyed reading about your favorite drinks. This was fun.
