Hello Fellow Readers (Drinkers)
So when I picked this up I did not know what was in store for me, so I did not expect over 100 pages of recipes! I thought the process of making liquors was just add vodka and fruit but it's much more than that which Morad explains. I love that Morad gives you a small (and reasonable) list of equipment you would need. Also, the tip of using dried fruits was something I have never even thought of as I've only ever used fresh fruit when I've made drinks in the past. 
The book is filled with colorful and bright photos so you can compare to what you make. I love the recipes in this book. The ones I was was most interested were the Mixed Liquors (the Citrus Celebration and Cinnamon Coconut Honey Immediately caught my eye)and the Veggie and Herbal Liquors (I want to make the Indian Rose Liquor and the Beet liquor). I can't wait to try my hand at these drinks!
Overall, a very interesting and inventive way to broaden your liquor horizons
