A Lighter Take on Serious Cocktails, with 100+ Recipes for Low- and No-Alcohol Drinks

Drink Lightly presents a relaxed style of drinking that goes down easy but is soundly rooted in the technical precision of craft cocktails. Award-winning bartender Natasha David's approach to low-alcohol, apéritif-style drinks goes far beyond the formulaic (bitter liqueur plus soda) and takes full advantage of an incredible and vast array of low-proof spirits, liqueurs, and wines, along with flavorful fruit and herbal infusions. The result is a collection of creative, genre-pushing drinks that surprise and delight. 

Offerings are playful and light in effect, but complex in flavor, ranging from savory and herbal to floral and aromatic, depending on your mood. Inspired by the joyful rhythms of life and gathering, recipes include delights such as the Lillet Rouge-spiked Kitty Cat Chronicles and the Wiggle Room, a vermouth and soda on a tropical getaway. The drinks are organized by refreshing Gulpable Thirst Quenchers that invigorate the soul, end-of-the-night Slow Sippers, Party Starters for a crowd, and nonalcoholic pick-me-ups. 

Served with whimsy and a wink, Drink Lightly will satisfy novices and professionals alike with its joyful spirit and lighthearted offerings.
