“Who it’s for: The home bartender that can’t decide on what to drink. This book has a little bit of everything, and with eye-catching photos, you’ll want it all.”

“Everything you need to know about throwing a successful cocktail party is in this new book.”
—Los Angeles Times

“I haven’t been able to put it down. Is it odd to read a recipe book as if it were a novel?”
—San Diego Magazine

“Individuality is part of this book's charm, much like its ode to an underappreciated ingredient, Dubonnet. But the greater success of The New Cocktail Hour is its ability to be many things to a variety of readers and still stand out from the pile of cocktail copycats as both useful and different.”
—The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Sized to fit on a shelf in your bar, the book has a slightly snarky, humorous tone that makes it an easy read. And the fascinating bits of history will make great cocktail party fodder. … This new volume is a suitable gift for a recent college grad with a taste for craft cocktails.”
—The Virginian-Pilot

“These sibling cocktail enthusiasts have compiled a big book of pretty drinks. The photography is downright mouth-watering and the text layout is also quite easy on the eyes. The cocktails are well organized by category and presented with historical reference, with easy to follow instructions and even food pairings.”
—The Alcohol
