Author Casie Vogel, lover of all things carbonated, shares her expertise to help you live your best seltzer life. “Nothing sounds sweeter than the crack of that slim aluminum can. Spring, summer, whatever time of year, it’s hard seltzer season,” she said. At 4 to 6 percent alcohol content, it’s an easy beverage to imbibe anytime of day. “But sometimes you have to take it up a notch…or several,” she said. “What’s the right ratio? What actually tastes like a cocktail, doesn’t skimp, but also doesn’t immediately send you to blackout town? That’s where my help comes in. The recipes are dangerously delicious and designed to get the party going, whether it’s a Friday night pregame or your next big party—or if it’s just been a tough day (girl, you do you). Pick up this book and let’s get bubbly.” The recipes are organized into four different chapters—Boozy Brunch, Summer Slushies, Classy Classics, and Pregame & Party—based on the potential party or day-drinking situation you’ve found yourself in. With the exception of a few single-serving cocktails and the batch “party” cocktails, most of the recipes call for one 12-ounce can of hard seltzer and serve two. The Hard Seltzer Cocktail Book offers everything you need to add a little snap, sparkle, and pop to your favorite cocktails.
