Book Description

The Margarita. It’s the drink that puts the "happy" in happy hour. A beguiling elixir of tequila, citrus, and sweetness that’s guaranteed to go down easy—and put a smile on your face.

The Classic Margarita—perhaps named after Margarita Sames, or maybe Margarete, a descendent of Ponce de Leon, but do we really care?—is a delectable blend of tequila, simple syrup, Cointreau, and lime and lemon juices. But as cocktail designer extraordinaire Kim Haasarud proves in this fantastic little guide, the Classic is just the starting point for margarita bliss. Open the book, and you’ll discover 101 heavenly margarita recipes—one for every season, every mood, and every occasion.

All your favorite margarita variations are here. You can chill out with a frozen Strawberry Margarita. Get romantic with an exotic Passionfruit Margarita. Or "berry" yourself in the fruity delights of a delicious Raspberry Margarita. But Haasarud also gives you lots of new and exciting margarita choices. You can take a cocktail party to new heights with the sophisticated Sake Margarita. Tame fiery foods with the refreshing Sweet Ginger Margarita. Or finish off a meal with a divine Hazelnut Margarita or an espresso-infused Margarita du Café.

So invite some friends, get out your shaker, and ready the glasses. With a little help from this book, you’ll be in Margaritaville in no time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun with these recipes 4 July 2015

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great recipe ideas for different Margaritas - have had fun with a few now. The classic Margarita recipe gave me the authentic taste I was looking for. Much better than searching the weird ideas that come up on line. Also bought classic Margarita glasses which add to the authenticity.

5.0 out of 5 stars love this book! 14 April 2006
By darron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I have a few different bar books because I love to throw parties. When we have a party, we put all our different liquors, mixers and garnishes on a table in the middle of the room. Then we make lots of coasters that have different drink recipes on them and let people make their own drinks. Not only does it make it easier for us the hosts, it encourages people at the party to talk to each other and compare drinks. This margarita book is perfect for that. We are having a party in two weeks and it may very well be a Margarita party with this book being the basis. The photography is gorgeous and I want to scan the images to make the coasters. Also, there are so many different colors of margaritas; if your party has a color theme, it is easy to pick out appropriate recipes. On top of that, the book is only $10.00. What a deal. I am happy to add it to my collection and with it's pretty cover, it will be facing outward on my bookshelf. And I highly recommend the Midori Margarita!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Variety of Recipes 6 Jun. 2006
By May Yeung Greco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is an amazing compilation of margarita recipes. Who knew there could be so many delicious and mouthwatering recipes for margaritas. I've always been a classic margarita gal, but this summer I'll definitely be serving the pink lemonade or lemon meringue margarita at a Sunday brunch with good girlfriends. Cheers!

I have never in my life bought a recipe book without an index or table of contents until this one. The drinks are not even in alphabetical order! I did not notice this when I first bought this book and browsed the different margarita recipes. However, when I decided days later to look up the recipe for a raspberry margarita I noticed the book did not have an index, a table of contents and was not in alphabetical order. What insanity! I had to hunt for the recipe. Unless you are into trying unusual concoctions like Avocado-Cilantro or Cherimoya or Blood Orange Margaritas, I recommend that you skip this book. I bought The Bartender's Black Book [$12.95 for 8th edition on Amazon] and am very pleased with it. It has over a dozen different popular Margarita recipes along with many other drink recipes and helpful drink making instructions/tips. It has a total of over 2,700 drink recipes AND the drink recipes are in alphabetical order.
