Review: The Geeky Chef Drinks
The moment The Geeky Chef Drinks by Cassandra Reeder landed in my inbox, I knew that it was going to be a fun recipe book to explore. These concoctions are perfect while you read, watch, or play your favourite geeky series. Reeder gives not only some amazing ideas to create the drinks featured in our coveted worlds, she has also provided many cool ideas on how to add amazing special effects to them.
Perfect for a Party
If you are a fan of any cult series, you will most likely find a drink for it inside The Geeky Chef Drinks. Potterheads, Whovians, and Trekkies are very well represented in this book of simple to follow recipes. If you are hosting a theme party or a bookish event, this is one book to explore. The ingredients are fairly easy to source and depending on your budget, there are multiple alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to create. Special effects, such as mist and fire, are also uncovered, so if you are interested in kicking things up a notch, you will find it here!
Ideas for Stocking a Bar
Collecting the tools and ingredients to make most of these recipes isn’t very difficult, however there is an initial cost to purchasing some of them. Personally, I don’t have much in the way of a well-stocked bar, but this book has inspired me to start working on it. I did create the Chateau Romani from The Legend of Zelda. It is a really yummy drink that combines ingredients, including ice cream and Irish cream. I absolutely loved this drink inspired by the vintage milk that Link drinks in Majora’s Mask.
The Geeky Chef Drinks is a staple that should be in your collection if you are a huge fan of any book, TV, or game series. It really is a jam-packed recipe book that has just about every fandom imaginable. I look forward to mixing up some more of these interesting beverages.
