A review from Gay List Daily Staff, National Edition, December 6, 2013
We must be seriously dehydrated.
Because we’re always thirsty. Not for water, but vodka sodas. Or just a simple pineapple-agave-basil margarita shaken in a fresh coconut served flaming for elegant notes of roasted chestnut.
That’s why we love Happy Hour. So many new drinks to explore, always at a discount.
But nothing is less expensive than creating the Happy Hour experience at home. And in 12 Happy Hours, the latest book from J.K. O’Hanlon (of 3 Ingredient Cocktails fame), the author guides us through a year’s worth of DIY cocktail parties based on seasonal ingredients and holidays.
For each month, she presents a trio of appetizer recipes, as well as three easy-to-mix cocktails that will thrill every guest. Or just yourself if it’s a Happy Hour of One kind of day.
There are also tips on entertaining so that the party can be stress-free for everyone.
We’ll drink to that!
Then again, we’ll drink to just about anything.
12 Happy Hours by J.K. O’Hanlon, $5.99 (Kindle), $10.31 (Paperback)
