Delish is the fastest growing food website on the internet, with more than 40 million monthly views and videos that have been viewed billions of times. Every week Delish makes hundreds of stories, videos and recipes that are some of the most engaged with content on the Internet. The Delish motto is, "Come for the food, stay for the fun."
“Delish delivers a splashy assemblage of clever, mostly sweet, and Instagram-ready quaffs... The editors are especially inventive when it comes to Bloody Marys, which are accessorized with skewered mini tacos and sliders, or rimmed with crushed Cheetos, or served as shooters in hollowed-out pickle halves. Oreo shots, meanwhile, have their cream filling replaced by a mixture of vodka, gelatin, and sweetened condensed milk, while giant watermelon “shots,” molded from a halved melon, are served in the rind and are as big as a plate. There is no shortage of frozen drinks, as well as ice pops in flavors including gin and tonic, and Moscow mule. And for teetotalers, a chapter of mocktails replaces booze with puns in options like the blackberry “faux-jito” and a cranberry basil “sansgria.” A rainbow of creations for celebrating or entertaining at home pours forth in this fun collection.”
“All of your boozy dreams come true in Delish Ultimate Cocktails. Whether you're hosting an elaborate dinner party or just having a couple girlfriends over, this book has you covered for any kind of drink you can imagine!”

Delish Ultimate Cocktails is a how-to for creating the best crowd-pleasing experiences. There are cocktails, mocktails, and just drinks that make any day feel a little more special. I love this cookbook for its creativity, great flavors, and fun photography and design. My personal favorite recipes at the moment are the Best Ever Arnold Palmer and the Moscato Margarita but I can’t wait to try them all–especially the Jell-O shots for when the kids are at their grandparents’ house for the weekend!
—Catherine Lowe, reality television star
“This book completely captures its title, DELISH. A definite page turner! I can honestly say there’s not a cocktail in here I wouldn’t want to partake in. The recipes are easy enough for anyone to become their own Tom Cruise. And the photography will literally make you drool.”
—Tiffani Thiessen, actress
