Praise For Dry: Delicious Handcrafted Cocktails and Other Clever Concoctions—Seasonal, Refreshing, Alcohol-Free

“An excellent choice for home mixologists.”—Library Journal

“You’re going to enjoy these recipes all year long.”—Atlanta Journal Constitution

“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
