Dessert & Booze Hack by Peggy Wang

I picked this book because of the cover: Gummy Bears in a Clear Popsicle. When this book showed up, upon first flip through, I was very happy with what I saw: Easy Thin Mints, No Bake Ice Cream Sandwich Cake, No Bake Reese’s Cheesecake, Kit-Kat Brownies, Gummy Bear Popsicles, Grilled S’mores Sandwiches, and Drunken Gummy Bears.

And that’s just 7 of the recipes that initially caught my eye. This book was become quite popular among our friends. I haven’t tried any of them but I plan on having a tasting party. This is a fun and easy cookbook.

I recommend this book. It’s fun just to look through. It looks semi-childish, but has adult-geared recipes.

Blogging for Books Review: The Art of Whiskey by Noah Rothbaum

Art of American Whiskey

This book is not what I expected. When I picked it out, I failed to read the subtitle: A Visual History of the Nation’s Most Storied Spirit, through 100 Iconic Labels.

It literally was an art book about whiskey labels. There are a few cocktail recipes.

You can tell from the writing that the author is very passionate about the subject matter.

Just because this book was not what I expected doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it. I do recommend this book for those who like to read about the history of alcohol. It would make a nice coffee table book where the artwork can be pursued at leisure.
