About the Book:
Craft delicious, creative mixed drinks using pantry staples with this essential recipe book guaranteed to satiate any cocktail craving. We all want to be the type of host who can put together a tasty meal or a delicious appetizer for unexpected company by creatively using the odds and ends from our pantry or fridge. That same improvisational approach can be applied to home bartending with impressive (and tasty!) results. Knowing how to enlist the everyday basics cluttering up your kitchen, like condiments, jams, pickles, and sauces, means you can craft inventive, flavorful cocktails on the fly, satisfying cravings and fulfilling your guest’s requests. Pantry Cocktails is an organized, easy-to-follow guide that not only includes cocktail recipes but accompanying themed food boards (such as The Warming Hut Board inspired by New Mexico flavors), helpful tips and hacks, and useful pantry suggestions. You will learn which key bottled spirits to keep in your liquor cabinet, which fridge and cupboard staples you can repurpose, and how to use seasonal herbs from your patio or garden to create outstanding cocktails that are sure to satisfy and impress.

My Review:
This book was not for me. I am not a fan of condiments in general and making cocktails out of mustard and the like made me queasy. I loathe pickles and there were a few recipes that included those as well. There were a lot of ingredients that are not every day pantry or bar items, at least not in my house. I didn't like how the pictures were drawings of the drinks and not actual photos. I appreciate what the author is trying to do here, making drinks unique and new and my rating is based on my personal preference and not the authors work.

Thank you NetGalley, Katherine Cobbs and Tiller Press for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
