Summary of the Book:

The author and the illustrator behind the best-selling Necronomnomnom have summoned another glorious grimoire—this time featuring cursed cocktails. These boozy and punny recipes pay homage to Lovecraftian horror themes and monsters with titles such as the King in Jell-O, Pink FlaMi-Go, and Sunken Island Iced Tea. Further libations include the Hell Residente, Moscow Ghoul, the Root Beer of All Evil, and the Bloodbath Beyond. The book provides “Virgin Sacrifices” for the coachman designated to drive everyone back from the séance, or for anyone not wanting to imbibe the devil’s water.

There are 75 delicious and malicious recipes, each gorgeously illustrated, mercilessly tested, and hilariously written. Recipes appear in the form of cryptic rhymes and arcane rituals but are always easy (and fun) to follow. Bibulous and ridiculous, Lovecraft Cocktails will bring delight and fright for Halloween, the holidays, and beyond.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I had fun just looking through the drink names. Then it came to the way to create them and it was like reading a spell book. It added to the experience. The Illustrations add to the creation of the drinks. The book on a whole made me want to go back and read some of the Lovecraft tales that inspired these drinks. I love the name and I am sure there was of fun that went into thinking them up. I am going to have to look into more like this.

My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
