¡Hola Tequila! Ninety Creative Cocktails & Inspired ShootersUser Review - Book Verdict
Whether they love it or hate, most people have strong feelings about tequila. There's more to it than just shots or margaritas, though, and interested imbibers might find this title an excellent way to expand their acquaintance with the blue-agave based liquor. Graham does provide a number of variations on the ever-popular margarita, as well as a round-up of possible origins for that drink. She also describes the various classes of tequila; what's necessary to keep a bar fully stocked for preparing tequila-based drinks; handy tips and techniques for making and mixing cocktails; and a nice variety of recipes from a tequini (a variation on a martini) to a cilantro-cucumber smash. The book concludes with a brief overview of the distillation process. VERDICT Informative and educational on the topic of tequila production, with notes on relevant cultural and historical information, this title will also be of great practical use to the person who'd really prefer to focus on sampling the spirit—it includes plenty of drink recipes, too.
