See Mix Drink: A Refreshingly Simple Guide to Crafting the World's Most Popular Cocktails ~ Giveaway!

It's that time of year again when the holidays are just around the corner. Halloween has passed, Canadian Thanksgiving has passed, and the American Thanksgiving is just a week away. What does that mean? It's time to get your shopping on, and plan what you're doing for the holidays. With that said, I have the perfect item for anyone who's loves throwing dinner parties, or any party for that matter... See Mix Drink: A Refreshingly Simple Guide to Crafting the World's Most Popular Cocktails, by Brian D. Murphy. I'm not much of a heavy drinker, but I do like the occasional mixed drink. This book has it all, a great addition to anyone's cookbook and book collection.

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.

I love this book, and it would make for a great gift. I've never mixed a drink before, other then vodka and orange juice, so this book will become helpful for parties. This book goes into detail of the items that you should have in your mini bar, to the proper way of mixing a drink, and even breaks it down by liquor. This book is idiot proof, as it has diagrams, measurements and full instructions! This book is so amazing that it even includes the calories each drink contains... perfect for the holiday season of overindulging!
