This revised and updated edition offers 100+ insanely great cocktail recipes for every occasion, each with a fun twist. Plus, super-creative boozy bites!


Delish Ultimate Cocktails provides everything you need to make amazing drinks at home...and then some. Each of the 100+ easy and fun recipes dreamed up by the editors of Delish is an excuse to throw a party….even if it’s a party of two. These imaginative cocktail recipes will shake things up and elevate your mixology game with best-ever versions of the classics (like Flamin’ Hot Bloody Marys and Blueberry Lemonade Margaritas) plus inventive new ideas for Jell-O shots and boozy bites like Banana Pudding Shots and Pickle Bloody Mary Shooters. There are even delicious mocktails so everyone can join the fun, including Apple Cider Slushies and Cranberry Basil Sansgria.

Cocktails include:
  • Moscow Mule Punch
  • Dole Whip Margaritas
  • Brown Sugar Old-Fashioned
  • Spicy Grapefruit Side Car
  • Rosemary Gin Fizz
  • Frozen Pimms Cup
  • Strawberry Jalapeno Mint Juleps 
  • Caramel Hot Toddys
  • Negroni Jell-O Shots
  • Oreo Jell-O Shots
  • Gin and Tonic Pops and more!

The revised edition offers even more clever and Instagram- or Tik Tok-ready recipes. Inside, you'll find:
  • A color photograph for every recipe
  • Easy-to-follow recipes for every event imaginable from brunch to girls' night to summer parties and holiday gatherings
  • Recipe servings range from individual drinks to big batch punches, perfect for any sized celebration!
  • Tips on how to stock a bar cart and which glass to use for each drink

  •  Once you've tried just one of these drinks you'll want to know: Why limit happy to an hour!
    “Delish delivers a splashy assemblage of clever, mostly sweet, and Instagram-ready quaffs... The editors are especially inventive when it comes to Bloody Marys, which are accessorized with skewered mini tacos and sliders, or rimmed with crushed Cheetos, or served as shooters in hollowed-out pickle halves. Oreo shots, meanwhile, have their cream filling replaced by a mixture of vodka, gelatin, and sweetened condensed milk, while giant watermelon “shots,” molded from a halved melon, are served in the rind and are as big as a plate. There is no shortage of frozen drinks, as well as ice pops in flavors including gin and tonic, and Moscow mule. And for teetotalers, a chapter of mocktails replaces booze with puns in options like the blackberry “faux-jito” and a cranberry basil “sansgria.” A rainbow of creations for celebrating or entertaining at home pours forth in this fun collection.”
    –Publishers Weekly

    “All of your boozy dreams come true in Delish Ultimate Cocktails. Whether you're hosting an elaborate dinner party or just having a couple girlfriends over, this book has you covered for any kind of drink you can imagine!” 
    —Kristin Cavallari, author of the New York Times best sellers True Comfort and True Roots

    Delish Ultimate Cocktails is a how-to for creating the best crowd-pleasing experiences. There are cocktails, mocktails, and just drinks that make any day feel a little more special. I love this cookbook for its creativity, great flavors, and fun photography and design. My personal favorite recipes at the moment are the Best Ever Arnold Palmer and the Moscato Margarita but I can’t wait to try them all–especially the Jell-O shots for when the kids are at their grandparents’ house for the weekend!
    —Catherine Lowe, reality television star

    “This book completely captures its title, DELISH. A definite page turner! I can honestly say there’s not a cocktail in here I wouldn’t want to partake in. The recipes are easy enough for anyone to become their own Tom Cruise. And the photography will literally make you drool.” 
    —Tiffani Thiessen, actress
