Cooking With Cocktails Cookbook Signing

Happy Saturday to you my friend. Let the BBQs, road trips & cocktailing begin!

I have very exciting news for you today. I am PUMPED UP more than good ole’ Arnie.

I’m going to be *LIVE* in the flesh, signing books, cracking jokes, and generally making an ass of myself this coming Saturday, July 15th and I want to personally invite YOU to swing by and get your copy of Cooking With Cocktails signed!

Cooking With Cocktails Cookbook Signing Invitation - She Eats, Kristy Gardner

That’s right my friends. Our very first Cooking With Cocktails Cookbook Signing party!

And don’t worry. If you don’t have a copy yet and want to help me re-stock my bar, you can grab one (or several) there. With the large glossy photos on each recipe, they make delicious gifts for anyone who likes booze, food, or food cooked IN booze.

So please come by. Shake my hand. Hang out with me so I don’t feel loser-lonely.

And get there early so you don’t miss out on the free homemade raspberry vodka brownies I’ll be bringing.

That’s right. Come early and I’ll feed you. Aren’t those just the best kinds of friends? I couldn’t think of a better excuse to hit the pavement and walk, jog, sprint, cycle, hitch, road-trip, bus or fly to the Indigo Chapters flagship location in Vancouver  if I tried!

I’m not saying meeting me is going to change your life or anything, but…. It’ll probably change your life.

What do you think? Can I count on you? Will you be there? Please shoot me an email to let me know if I can expect you.

I wanna see ya!

Bottoms up and I hope you’re having a happy weekend full of friends, food and frolicking!


About the book:

A cookbook that gives the phrase “happy hour” a whole new meaning!

Julia Child famously commented, “I enjoy cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food . . . ” Kristy Gardner has taken this idea to the next level in Cooking with Cocktails.

Gardner believes that the best memories are made over good food and good drinks – and why could be better than bringing them together? That’s why every recipe, in this slightly tipsy adventure of a cookbook, is made with wine, beer or spirits. Try them all, from hearty entrees to bar snacks, including:

  • Maple Bacon Bourbon Manhattans with Bacon Salt
  • Strawberry Chambord Whipped Stilton Cheese Toasts
  • Red Wine Chorizo with Blistered Cherry Tomatoes & Fresh Herbs
  • One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila, Ceviche!
  • JD Mac & Peas
  • Margherita “Margarita” Pizza
  • Chocolate-Porter Marinated Lamb Pops with Pea, Mint & Feta “Salad”
  • Lager-Simmered Chicken Thighs
  • Stout Blue Cheese Bison Burgers
  • 3 Way Boozy Ice Cream: Gin & Tonic, Chocolate Mint Julep, Pralines Rum & Caramel
  • Bourbon Soaked Cherries

With her gorgeous photography, imaginative recipes, and signature sense of humour, Gardner offers a cookbook that turns every meal into a toast to good cheer. Salud!
