Cutting Back On Booze?

You can eliminate most, if not all, of the alcohol in the cocktail recipes I feature and write about. To find heavenly recipes for beverages that don't involve any booze at all, check out my section on Mocktails (which are alcohol-free cocktails). You'll enjoy all of the fun without sacrificing taste!

Michelle's Swizzle-Stick Tip

Most everyone knows about freezing juice to make ice that won't dilute your punch as it melts, but did you know that you can make flavoured ice cubes to add a subtle taste to your favourite beverage? Try freezing lemon juice and water for your iced tea to add a tasty zing to each sip. Or add crushed herbs, such as mint, to the water trays for a pretty... and tasty... drink addition.

Notes On A Cocktail Napkin...
I've just now completed the cover image for my new cocktail book (I'm also the graphic artist for the cover and inner images) and it's been an interesting day. At first I was so excited to be thinking about my work not only in a book, but as the cover... and then I remembered my editor talking about shiny and matte and then she mentioned it being in the catalogue and I freaked out a little bit. This is big time stuff, and it's very overwhelming. So after I calmed myself down by reading a bit of Anne Lamott's Bird By Bird I went back to the drawing board (literally). Once I get the okay, I'll give the subscribers of this newsletter a sneak peek of what's between the covers... as well as what's on 'em! Check out the BellaOnline Cocktails site regularly to find out the latest.
