“An excellent choice for home mixologists.”—Library Journal
“One of the things many people miss when they stop drinking alcohol is the ritual that goes along with popping a cork, pouring a glass of wine, or building a cocktail. Dry offers many opportunities for an adventurous cook to create new rituals, as well as quick fixes for the impatient teetotaler who just wants a drink — and wants it now.”—The Santa Fe New Mexican
“You’re going to enjoy these recipes all year long.”—Atlanta Journal Constitution
“Surprising takes such as the Beetroot Virgin Mary add new life to a familiar favorite while new combinations like the Blood Orange and Sage Margarita make your mouth water in anticipation.”—Paste Magazine
“There’s an alcohol-free drinks revolution happening, and Dry is an intelligent—and accessible—guide. For too long non-drinkers have had to settle for overly sweet and overly simple ‘mocktails.’ There is nothing ‘mock’ about the drinks in this book.”—John deBary, bar expert and author
“Drinking together is important—not because of the ‘drinking’ part, but because of the ‘together’ part. Now folks who are avoiding booze can enjoy the party, too!”—Maggie Hoffman, author of The One-Bottle Cocktail: More than 80 Recipes with Fresh Ingredients and a Single Spirit
