I love, love, love Denise Gee’s books. This is the second one I’ve shared, the first being Southern Cocktails. Her books are always my go-to source when I’m planning a summer party and want to serve a special party drink to surprise my friends.
In the BNOTP Library: Porch Parties: Cocktail Recipes and Easy Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining
Author: Denise Gee
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- This book is all about summer parties, especially porch parties. The main focus of the book is eye-pleasing and delicious recipes for every kind of party drink you can imagine, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
- I love Denise Gee’s books because when you read them, it’s as if you’re chatting with a good friend. She mixes in wonderful little stories throughout her books and I love those as much as the recipes. In addition to the delightful stories, Denise also gives us tidbits of history/information, like explaining the difference between all the various kinds of orange liqueurs like Triple Sec, Curacao, Cointreau and Grand Marnier.
- Love the Party Planning Checklist on pages 18 & 19. It’s a great list for getting ready for your next party, be it on the porch or not. This is definitely a book I pull out whenever I’m planning a summer party and I need a special party drink to spoil my friends.
