Giveaway: Mix, Shake, Stir: Cocktails for the Home Bar by Danny Meyer

Summer is coming...who doesn't love to have friends and family over for cookouts and parties? Here's just the book to complete your summer get-togethers!

The bartenders at Danny Meyer's wildly popular restaurants are known for their creative concoctions. Guests at Union Square Café or Gramercy Tavern expect not only the finest cuisine but also Meyer's special brand of hospitality that often begins with a Venetian Spritz or a Cranberry Daiquiri. In MIX SHAKE STIR, Meyer offers all the tips and tools needed to become a masterful mixologist and supplements the cocktail recipes with gourmet takes on bar snacks. There are over 100 recipes of bar classics, signature favorites, and original, refreshing libations--from the Modern's elegant mojito made with champagne and rose water to Tabla's Pomegranate Gimlet. Shaken or stirred, straight up or on the rocks, these cocktails make this collection an invaluable resource for elegant entertaining.

I have three copies of Mix, Shake, Stir to give away. If you would like to enter, just leave me a comment here. Be sure to leave an email address where I can contact you if you win! Three extra entries to anyone who becomes a follower (or follows already), blogs about this contest or tweets it on Twitter (please leave me a separate comment if you do any of these). Enter until midnight eastern time on May 15. I will randomly draw three winners and notify them via email. Winners must have a US or Canada mailing address (no PO Boxes). Good luck!

About Me

My photo
New Hampshire, United States
Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
