Book: Tarot of Cocktails
Author: Katy Siebel
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
Inspired by classic Tarot decks, Tarot of Cocktails lends a mystical twist to 45 delicious drink recipes. Hand-drawn illustrations based on classic Tarot cards transform key elements into their cocktail related counterparts. Swords become vanilla beans, suns become citrus wheels, and so for. Readers will find stiff sippers, boozy floats, and light summery refreshers with fun names such as Blood & Smoke, The Herbalist, The Straw Man, Princess of Moscow, The White Elephant, and The Black Night. An introduction also includes home bartending basics and tips & tricks guaranteed to enchant guests.
I liked that the book started off with a little backstory of tarot, brief information into different spirits and liqueurs, and how to start off with home bartending.
I loved the hand-drawn diagrams of the different tools of bartending, helps a lot to understand what is being talked about.
I also loved the illustrations accompanying each cocktail recipe, these correlate with the main ingredients and the name given to the cocktail. The photographs of the cocktail are beautiful.
I also the uniqueness of the cocktails. I mean, cocktails with egg white, milk, and tea, is simply crazy.
Oh, there is a mocktail recipe too, FYI, if you wish for a non-alcoholic beverage.
I would love to have the hardcover of this book on my shelf.
It is so visually pleasing.
