A Best Book of 2018: -The New York Times -Food & Wine -Food Network Grab a light drink and a bite, and enjoy cocktail hour, the French way For the French, the fleeting interlude between a long workday and the evening meal to come is not meant to be hectic or crazed. Instead, that time is a much needed chance to pause, take a breath, and reset with light drinks and snacks. Whether it's a quick affair before dashing out the door to your favorite Parisian bistro or a lead-up to a more lavish party, Aperitif is about kicking off the night, rousing the appetite, and doing so with the carefree spirit of connection and conviviality. Aperitif celebrates that easygoing lifestyle with simple yet stylish recipes for both classic and modern French aperitif-style cocktails, along with French-inspired bites and hors d'oeuvres. Keeping true to the aperitif tradition, you'll find cocktail recipes that use lighter, low-alcohol spirits, fortified wines, and bitter liqueurs. The impressive drinks have influences from both Old World and New, but are always low fuss and served barely embellished-an easy feat to pull off for the relaxed host at home. Aperitif also offers recipes for equally breezy bites, such as Radishes with Poppy Butter, Gougeres, Ratatouille Dip, and Buckwheat-Sel Gris Crackers. For evenings that are all about ease and approachability without sacrificing style or flavor, Aperitif makes drinking and entertaining at home as effortless, fun, and effervescent as the offerings themselves.
