NATIONAL BESTSELLER • Freezer door cocktails are perfectly crafted and always ready when you are—in this "genius" (Forbes) collection of 75 drinks made directly inside the liquor bottle to store on the freezer door.

There is a time and place for meticulous home mixology. But more often, what we really want is a shortcut to our favorite cocktail that’s at the ready any time we want it. Pour. Sip. Simple!

You build these drinks in batches right in the liquor bottle, then keep them on call in the freezer for whenever the mood strikes. That means a perfectly chilled Negroni or sweet and minty Mojito is always on hand, whether you’re unwinding after a long day or hosting a few friends.

This creative collection of 75 ready-to-pour cocktails shows how to make freezer door versions of your favorites, from Margaritas and Manhattans to Cosmopolitans, Espresso Martinis, and beyond. Strong enough to stay liquid at freezer temperatures, these recipes include: 
  • Moscow Mule
  • Coconut-Lime Daiquiri Colada
  • Mai Tai
  • Chocolate Negroni
  • The Last Word
  • Mexican Old Fashioned
  • Paper Plane
Plus, every batch recipe includes an additional single-serving cocktail you can make with the liquor you have left over—so you can double the fun.

  • "This clever collection will appeal to anyone who wants the convenience of a cocktail in a can without sacrificing flavor."
    Publishers Weekly
  • “A range of original and rejiggered classics, formulated to hold in the cold but never freeze…. A bottle of water frozen for four hours is an icicle; a bottled cocktail treated the same is a perfect drink.”
    Washington Post
  • “Whether you’re a casual cocktail maker or one with plenty of experience shaking, stirring and straining, you’ll appreciate food and drink writer J.M Hirsch’s genius collection Freezer Door Cocktails.”
