Drink Me: Curious Cocktails from Wonderland By Nick Perry

REVIEW ARC

descriptiondescriptiondescriptiondescriptiondescription The minute I saw this book up on NetGalley I knew I had to get my greedy little paws on it. I adore all things ALICE IN WONDERLAND, and I love to drink (lol), seriously though, I do love trying new and unusual cocktails. Combine that with my love for reading, and well, I am undoubtedly going to be intrigued!
descriptionFirst off this book is just fun to look at. It is full of colorful illustrations, hand-drawn art, and eye-catching fonts. The book is broken up into three parts with each part broken down into the following chapters…

PART ONE — Introduction, Spirits and Liqueurs, Techniques, Garnishing Techniques, Equipment and Tools, Glassware.

PART TWO — Cocktails.

PART THREE — Batch Recipes, Syrups, Liqueurs, Infused Spirits, Puree and Juices, Fat-Washed Spirits, Dehydrating Fruit for Garnish.
descriptionThe recipes are easy to follow and include all the measurements to create a single cocktail. Each recipe also includes a quote and a little bit of information about what inspired the creation of the cocktail. 

Here are just a few of the whimsical cocktails that you will find in this book…

— Off with Her Head
— White Rabbit (This one was my favorite. It was like a dessert in a cocktail glass).
–Curiouser and Curaçao
— Pig and Pepper
— Cup of Mad Tea
— The Queen’s Tart
— Dirty Oyster Martini
— Un-BirthdayCake Martini (Another fave of mine!)

This was simply a FUN book with a delightful layout and whimsical cocktails. I will definitely be adding the physical book to my ever-growing cookbook collection the minute it is released. I would recommend this one to anyone who loves literature themed cookbooks, as well as anyone who is an Alice In Wonderland fan.description
