Cocktails with a Latin Twist

Last week I attended the book signing for Latin Twist: Traditional & Modern Cocktails by Vianney Rodriguez and Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack. This compilation of delicious cocktail recipes inspired by Latin American and Caribbean countries includes traditional and some modern twists to our favorite drinks. I was pleasantly surprised to see a new take on traditional cocktails from my own Heritage, Dominican Republic and from where I spent most of my life, Puerto Rico. I actually showed my mother recipes of her favorites like Morir Soñando, with added Liquor 43 and she will definitely try it out this Summer. A wonderful add on to my home bar/lounge, I'll have tons of fabulous cocktails to prepare for my Summer Soirees!

La semana pasada tuve el placer de asistir a la dirma de libros de Latin Twist: Traditional and Modern Cocktails por Vianney Rodriguez e Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack. Esta compliación de deliciosas recetas de coctéles inspirada por países latinoanericanos y caribeños incluye las recetas de tragos tradicionales y otros con un toque moderno. Fue una sorpresa grata ver recetas de mi país de herencia, la República Dominicana y de Puerto Rico, donde me crié. De hecho, se lo enseñé a mi madre y le encantó ver la receta de su favorito, Morir Soñando, con Licor 43 añadido, el cual confeccionará este verano. Por mi parte, estoy contenta de añadir el libro a mi barra en casa y ahora tener una gran variedad para confeccionar en mis fiestas de verano!
