Wet your whistle: free giveaway!
************************This contest is now closed*********************
Memorial Day is just around the corner. Do you have any plans for the long weekend? This giveaway might just be the inspiration you need to host a fun get-together. I’m giving away a free copy of The Field Guide to Cocktails, by Rob Chirico.
Cocktails have made a real comeback in the past few years. This gem of a book includes over 293 of the classic recipes, plus dozens more variations to play around with, as the mood strikes you.
It will also teach you how to stock a great bar, use the correct cocktail glasses, the best seasons to enjoy each recipe, even the history and traditions of each drink. (All of the great stories actually make this book decent bedtime reading, too.) I love all of the color photos to see if we’ve made the drink correctly!
If you are the lucky person who wins this giveaway, the book will be delivered to your home in time for you to break it in over the Memorial Day weekend. The great size of this book will make it easy to take with you to the liquor store to make sure you haven’t missed anything on your list.
Try a brand new cocktail or make a big batch of a favorite mix for your friends and family!
To Enter: Leave a comment that begins with “I’LL DRINK TO THAT!” and tell me what your favorite cocktail is and when you discovered it’s delicious-ness. Only one entry per email address will be allowed, so that everyone gets a fair chance of winning.
