Adorable book on magical cocktails. I would absolutely make these delectable cocktails and I love the write up on what they mean and what they do for you.

This book is cool that it gives you the different meanings of the moon cycles, the different ingredients and flavors! Now I will say there is some prep to your alcohol prior to moving into the actual recipes and some of them require some very specific flavors. This book is great for someone who really loves specialty cocktails and doesn't mind the extra effort to make it fantastic. The pictures are beautiful! I tried the Pumpkin Spice Lunar Latte as it was the easiest with what I had on hand and it was really yummy!

More than a grimoire of lunar libations, Hadas takes mixology to the next level. Readers will delight in crafting and concocting potions to align with the phases of the moon, but each are clever in their accessibility and, of course, deliciousness. Filled with information on monthly moons, horoscopes, crystals, edible elements, setting intentions, and why each factor into what one will be creating, here. Hadas also helps to build reader's bars with recipes for bitters, syrups, and infusions. Even the garnishes and serving suggestions are playful nods to the stars and the moon. Check out "More Moon Magic" following each recipe for deeper ritual connections. Gorgeously laid out, 'Moon, Magic, Mixology' is a must-have for those wanting to incorporate celestial practices, however, this will find a solid place in every cocktail collection because these standout recipes are universal

I love learning new ways of infusing magic for family, friends, and myself. This book takes potion making to a whole new level where people can imbibe and infuse themselves in magic all through the simple act of drinking a cocktail. It walks you through how the moon and alcohol can work together and other ways of infusing your potions/drinks with your intentions and pure natural magic. You'll need to prepare in advance as you may need to use the power if the moon in it's cycle to prepare some ingredients beforehand, but magic is all about setting intentions, harnessing the power of nature, the moon here, and setting intentions.

Enjoy your own magic or share it with friends and family. Either way, you'll find recipes and methods you will want to incorporate into your own practices and make for a very merry meet.

This book really does perfectly look after your moon magic and mixology needs. With cocktails for every phase of the moon and astrological occasion, this book is your one stop shop.

The author tells you how to further boost each cocktail with accompanying crystals.

The book also provides detail on what each ingredient does and represents. And if you’re looking for something specific, the reference section at the end makes finding it easy.

Now off to try making the cocktails.

ARC review:

This was an interesting read. Lots of information on the moon, moon cycles, uses of the ingredients. Very sharp photos of all of the drinks. Love the details in this one. It is both classy and educational. Cheers to the moon!

Ever since a certain movie and midnight margaritas, cocktails held a special place in my heart in connection to witchcraft. I just never had the chance to incorporate them into my path, mainly because I didn't know where to start.
Moon, Magic, Mixology by Julia Halina Hades, is more than just a book about cocktails or the moon. It interweaves these topics in an ingenious way that I loved reading about, even though I didn't even want to make myself a drink in the near future.
She guides us not only through the moon phases, but also through the seasons and there are many delicious recipes included in this book.
If you enjoy a drink with your witchcraft, I highly recommend getting this book!

What a magical book. I am always intrigued by ingredient or method specific cookbooks and this ticked all the boxes. Crafting infusions with care to make curated cocktails or mocktails is something I very much appreciate! All of the information provided was fascinating and to-the-point in the best way. I adored this and will definitely recommend it to many!

Part bartender's handbook, part guide to modern astrology, part witchcraft practical -- this is not one to miss! This book has a huge wealth of information to provide, not just for those practicing the craft, but for anyone looking to add a new twist to their celebrations (or cozy drinks with friends, either works). I absolutely love this book, and it will be one to keep on my bookshelf at home for years to come.

This ebook ARC was sent to me in exchange for an honest review. I loved that the book not only contained recipes, but also took the time to explain different moon phases and had drinks related to different zodiac signs. The drinks listed in this drink were delicious, gorgeous, and they were perfect for our Halloween Party. The drinks listed in this book would be perfect for any event, especially if those attending were moon/ zodiac lovers like myself. The book will be a perfect addition to a coffee table or kitchen for décor and reference. I will definitely be buying a physical copy of this book for myself and as a gift for a few friends. I highly recommend this book.

I was thrilled when I saw that Julia Halina Hadas was coming out with another book of magical libations. As with the first, this one takes the complication and the fear out of making your own cocktails at home. Full of more delicious and unique cocktails for the witchy crowd, this one puts an emphasis on the various cycles of the moon throughout the year. Ranging from drinks for every full moon, new moon, and more. Again, I find myself prepping some variety of syrup to make myself a delicious drink, which was conjured up from the magnificent mind of Julia Halina Hadas. I can't wait to add a physical copy of this to my library.

Thank you to Netgalley, Adams Media, and Julia Halina Hadas for providing me with an eARC of this book, however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

This book offers a comprehensive look at how the moon and its various phases influences so many aspects of our lives. It explores all of the phases of the moon, including supermoons, eclipses, and blue moons, to name a few.

There are a variety of drink recipes offered, linked to different moons throughout the year, as well as recipes for making the different ingredients to create these beverages. Some of them are simple to make, while others are a bit more involved, with ingredients that aren't as easily found in my pantry. But overall, the instructions are easy to follow.

The drinks themselves sound delicious and look beautiful. I've bookmarked quite a few of the drinks, and will definitely be making them as soon as I can. I would have liked for there to be more pictures of the drinks, especially since the ones that are pictured are absolutely beautiful, and I tend to like to know what it should look like, so I know that I've made it correctly. There's a comprehensive index at the back, sorted by ingredients, what moon phase and traits they're linked to, and a list of sources that the author used. Overall, this is intriguing blend of witchcraft and common ingredients, combined to create delicious beverages that anyone can enjoy - especially since many of the drinks also include non-alcoholic substitutions.

Super cool. Way more information than I was expecting. I assumed this would be a fun book on seasonal drinks and I was so wrong. Lots of moon information and how it is throughout the year. Also information on different crystals and edible elements. That’s all before you get to the first drink. Not your typical drink book. They are not only beautiful, they sound so good. I can’t wait to try a bunch of them.

It is a nice little addition to those wanting to add something like this into their practice or workings with the moon or add to a celebration. Some moon introductory information and then drinks divided into the seasons - which is cool.
