* DRINK BOOK OF THE MONTH! Disco Cube Cocktails, by Leslie Kirchhoff

1.DISCO CUBE COCKTAILS (Chronicle Books, 2020, 176 pages, ISBN 978-1-4521-8081-6 $18.95 USD hardbound) is by Leslie Kirchhoff, who launched Disco Cubes in Los Angeles in 2018. She creates and then photographs unique frozen works of art. Here she does craft cocktails. There are over 100 recipes here for ice creations of cubes for cocktails. Because music is such an integral part of the millennial experience she proposes seven playlists to enjoy while sipping on the drinks. She tells you how to make the different ices and how to add them to the cocktail, and illustrates it all whit a photo. Quite a different book. Preparations have their ingredients listed in both metric and avoirdupois measurements.
Audience and level of use: millennials, potential bartenders.
Some interesting or unusual recipes/facts: Indochine iced coffee; Let's Stay Together cubes; Bellini Balls; the Breeze and double mint cubes; white Negroni and rose cube; soul makossa and tangerine turmeric cubes.
The downside to this book: I guess I wanted a playlist form the 1950s rock and roll era.
The upside to this book: good use of metric measurements and dashes. Good lookin' lifestyle book.
Quality/Price Rating: 92.
