mojito time


I’ve been on a photoshoot this week for the next book by Kim Haasarud called 101 Mojitos and Other Muddled Drinks. The book won’t be published for a while, but she’s got a lot of other great ones out now. Here’s a little teaser — some snapshots I took during the shoot. The food styling is thanks to the amazing Brian Preston-Campbell.



It was a great shoot, and I can’t wait for the book to be published next year. The rest of this post has been edited down since I first wrote it, so I’m sorry if some of the comments don’t make sense anymore.

  1. goodness. i love bau so hard. looks pretty incredible and niman ranch pork too? cool.also… "muddled drinks". muddled is an appealing word, strangely… all those beverages look very lovely and drinkable…!

  2. dawn: i think it was more like root beer than cream sodalyndsay: i didn't try the drinks because i wanted to stay sober, but i do think these would be yummyhow to eat a cupcake: yeah, that was a watermelon cocktail… yummrs. hot cocoa: hmm, i don't know but i'll look out for that

  3. i lovvvve those baos! in fact i am actually craving those right now! i have not eaten them for such a long time for obvious reasons that they are not exactly my waist's best friend. the mojitos loook just great too! i need a drink.

  4. Over the summer my husband enjoyed concocting all kinds of mojitos, and our favorite included raspberries from our garden. When warmer weather finally shows up again, I may have to suggest a watermelon version. As we are currently buried under feet upon feet of snow, I will content myself dreaming of the pork belly steamed buns.Anyway, I found you through TasteSpotting and am writing to say that if you have any photos that aren’t accepted there, I’d love to publish them. Visit my site (below), it’s a lot of fun! I hope you will consider it.Best,CaseyEditorwww.tastestopping.com

  5. tastestopping: we definitely made some with raspberries too… thanks for visitinghelene: yeah, it was a lot of fun. thanks.beef recipes: thanks for visiting

  6. Mojitos are my absolute FAV cocktail and I am very picky about where I order one. So I'd be interested to buy the book when it's out and try some new recipes at home. If you're looking for the BEST mojito in NYC (and I have tried TONS) go to a Latin Bistro in Soho called Ideya.

  7. eliana: yeah, i've been to ideya before, and you're right about their classic mojito, but this book has some pretty amazing variations nobody has heard of before… trust me!

  8. what a great teaser! we went to a fundraiser recently and there was a fantastic celery drink. we copied that and made a mojito with it (original was citron vodka)and it worked beautifully! So wondering if this obook as something on celery..
