KIM HAASARUD - 101 SHOTS

Both classic and sophisticated shot recipes like you've never seen before. Forget what you think you know about shots from your college years. In 101 Shots, cocktail aficionado Kim Haasarud elevates the lowly shot to heights never seen before in this collection of recipes just as she’s done with her other books including 101 Martinis and 101 Margaritas. For example, the Peach Fuzz Shooter, the Mini Bananas Foster, and the Archangel are made with fresh fruit purees. There are more traditional recipes as well, such as the Belfast Bomber made with Baileys and Irish whiskey dropped into a glass of Guinness, not to mention spicy offerings like the Yellow Sun Sangrita made with smoked paprika and Tabasco, and even savory ones like the Caprese Shooter made with tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper—and vodka, of course. What’s perhaps best about shot recipes is that there is almost no occasion when they’re not fun to serve and enjoy, from the Johnny Appleseed, a perfect drink for fall made with fresh cider, to the Red, White, and Blue, a layered concoction ideal for Independence Day parties. With gelée shot recipes, too, this may be the last party cocktail book you’ll ever need.

ABOUT KIM: Kim Haasarud is a James Beard-honored mixologist, author, and beverage consultant. She conceives her signature cocktails much as Alice Waters would create a specialty dish, taking inspiration from market-fresh, high quality ingredients. "Cocktails, like food, should be culinary experiences," says Haasarud. "It is about combining ingredients to create a sensation on the palate and entice all the senses with a combination of flavors, textures, aromas, and garnishes."

You won't find the standard Cosmopolitan or mix-based Margarita on Haasarud's ever-changing bar card. Instead, depending on the occasion or the season, she might shake up Martini infusing teas with fresh muddled fruits, or concoct a Margarita with ripe kumquats or a combination of kiwis and fresh herbs.

JIM KOPP - VP SALES & MARKETING, TRUETT-HURST – PAPERBOY WINE 

Paper Boy is a wine that breaks rules.  Breaks barriers.  Breaks the way we enjoy wine, even where we experience it.  From mountaintops to impromptu pool parties. Heck, even the final frontier – space.  It’s the first 100% fully recyclable wine that is 80% lighter than glass and made with ultra-green packaging. Paper Boy is a quality wine that comes to us by way Truett-Hurst and VML Winery.  Cool and responsible all at once, Paper Boy is truly the evolved way to wine.
