From teapots and strainers to espresso makers and hand-held blenders, author Liana Krissoff offers a review of the myriad machines and accessories available and describes the best methods and ingredients for making hot drinks. In each chapter, she presents a tempting array of recipes both classic and exotic, such as Orange-Scented Hot Chocolate, Green Tea “Cappuccino,” Lychee Black Tea with Cherry Wine, and Café Brûlot with Cinnamon Cream. The last chapter offers all manner of “spirited” hot drinks, with special tips on serving them to a crowd. Along the way are recipes for flavored whipped creams, sweeteners, and butters, as well as toothsome treats to serve with hot drinks, including Peppermint-Stuffed Marshmallows, Persimmon Tea Cake, and Spiced Candied Nuts.
