This fancy book is for anyone who has a love for cocktails or is a fan of the hit show Vanderpump Rules. Included is insider stories from the show about the author’s lives as well as beautiful pictures of each cocktail you can make for any occasion in your life.
Bravo's hit show Vanderpump Rules, which Vogue recently called "America's perfect reality show," is a spin-off of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The show is centered around the crazy, booze-fueled lives of the staff at Lisa Vanderpump's wildly popular SUR restaurant in West Hollywood. Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval, two of the show’s stars, fell in love on the show and have stuck together through it all. They've been talking about writing a cocktail book on the show for a few seasons, and now they're finally delivering the goods with this book that has drinks for every situation. It features a mix of classy cocktails for fancy special occasions and trashier recipes for those times when you just have a few random ingredients in your kitchen and want to keep the buzz going. Shots and recovery recipes are also included, so your pregame and morning after will be covered too. Woven throughout are brand-new photos and behind-the-scenes stories crafted with the help of Bravo insider and co-author Danny Pellegrino, making this a true must-have for fans of the show.
Even if you never make a single cocktail from this book, it would be worth it. The photos are stunning, the excerpts are funny and insightful, and it looks fantastic on a bookshelf, bar cart, or coffee table. - Amazon Reviewer This book is beautiful and the cocktails all sounds amazing. I would say this is a must have for people who love to make fun drinks for parties/events. - Amazon Reviewer The recipes are a must have for any cocktail party connoisseur, but it also looks great as coffee table book decor! - Amazon Reviewer This is one of the best cocktail books that I have ever bought. It puts a nice twist on all the old fashioned drinks that we love and some new ideas. I definitely say this is worth the money. - Goodreads Reviewer
