Sounded really good. After several recipes, not so impressed. The Tequila Chicken was good, once we put it in a burrito. Served as directed it was simply Tequila--the chicken kinda got lost. Same thing with the whiskey and the squash. I was looking for recipes where the spirit complimented the rest of the dish, not dishes that tasted like the spirit with different textures. We tried three or four dishes and liked one of them (and one I modified into being decent leftovers). The ones we didn't like we really didn't like.

This book offers delicious recipes for appetizers, veggies, main courses and desserts that contain a secret ingredient --- distilled liquor! In addition to traditional standards like Plum Pudding and Irish Rarebit, there are more than 80 exotic, delectable and easy recipes including Brandy Pate, Paella Aruba and Italian Rum Cake. Yum!
