Santa's little helpers have nothing on these cookbooks.
Put together the perfect party this holiday season with the help of America’s Test Kitchen.
How to Cocktail
Start your party on the right foot with our first-ever cocktail book. How to Cocktail includes essential, canonical classics; twists on old favorites; and brand-new test kitchen creations. The recipes are organized by technique (including stirring, shaking, muddling, blending, and more), with plenty of recipe-step photos to light the way. For those who love a great DIY project, we also offer up superior homemade versions of vermouths, liqueurs, bitters, flavored syrups, and garnishes.
All-Time Best Appetizers
Invite Cook’s Illustrated to the party with a perfectly curated selection of our favorite appetizer recipes for a spread that hits all the high points, from dippable options to snacks to food you’ll want to munch by the handful to elegant two-bite treats. All-Time Best Appetizers also includes detailed make-ahead instructions for many recipes so you can avoid day-of stress.
The America's Test Kitchen Menu Cookbook
A cookbook full of easy-to-follow strategies for successfully creating more than 50 complete menus with all the logistical nightmares solved—before they even happen. Each menu includes a balance of “day-before” and “day-of” recipes to make the most efficient use of your time and to ensure that you’ll enjoy the prep (almost!) as much as the parties.
