Cocktail guru J. K. O'Hanlon (known as "Thirsty Jane") guides would-be entertainers through an entire year of in-home happy hours, all of which are easy on both the hostess and the pocketbook. Jane's no-nonsense but always-classy approach from her earlier recipes is now applied to both drink and food. Each of the 12 chapters delivers a simple game plan for a happy hour: three easy-to-mix cocktails, ideally suited for the season; three appetizers guaranteed to not burden or become leftovers; and a tried-and-true entertaining tip to liven up the party and help the hostess enjoy it more. The book explains how to plan, prepare, and produce the perfect happy hour, with none of the usual stress and all of the memories.


"We dub Thirsty Jane the 'Cocktail Queen!' For your next happy hour, pour the bubbly and don't forget the BBQ."  —Karen Adler and Judith Fertig ("The BBQ Queens"), authors, The Gardener and the Grill
