Day-Drinking-50-Cocktails-for-a-Mellow-Buzz

Growing up with European parents, Kat Odell was exposed to alcohol at an age without the traditionally American gateway of the 21st birthday. Odell pulls from that same upbringing and an extensive list of alcohols to create a book that is appropriately titled Day Drinking: 50 Cocktails for a Mellow Buzz. If you’re in the mood for consumption but you don’t want to get hammered you can refer to the recipes in this 200+ page tome to help you create day drinks that are easy on the alcohol but not on the buzz. Written by the founding editor of the popular Eater Drinks column, Kat Odell, Day Drinking is divided into a number of easy to follow chapters filled with alcoholic recipes that are delicious and light on the booze. Cocktail Basics. Summer Lovin’. But First, a Cocktail. Warm me up. Grouplove. Wildcard Cocktails. Buzz-free Beverages. If you want to host a great party without the terrible aftermath, this is a great book for your home bar.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
