During the holiday season, and all year round, whenever we go out to a party or meet friends for drinks many of us feel we have to miss out or blow our diets. Not so, according to Dr. Douglas J. Markham the author of Beyond Atkins and now Low-Carb Cocktails.
In his latest effort to help us control our diets, Markham offers not only a number of excellent recipes for beverages which will fit a low-carb regimen but much more. This handy little pocket sized book begins with the Principles of the Low-Carb Lifestyle and goes on to Understanding the Types of Alcohol, The Physical Effects and even The Responsible Use of Alcohol. This combined with Responsible Hosting and Bartending Tips, a section with information on Stocking your Low-Carb Cocktail Bar and even Low-Carb Cocktails Nutritional Facts make this a must have for every bar (even if you aren’t on a low-carb diet).
Whether you are looking for a hot or cold alcoholic beverage or even a nonalcoholic drink, you will find a low-carb version of it here. With your drinks you can also enjoy the sections on Protein-rich Low-Carb Snacks, Snacks Requiring No Recipes, Dips and Dippers and even Hors d’Oeuvres. The ideas and suggestions make sense for everyone at your party, most won’t even know they are low-carb.
