About the cookbook

The award-winning food bloggers from Muy Bueno and Sweet Life have teamed up to create this exciting collection of Latin cocktails. Yvette and Vianney are known for their flavorful Latin/Mexican recipes with easy-to-find ingredients. The Latin-inspired drinks on their blogs have been so popular that they’ve decided to devote a whole book to them! From Latin America and Spain, these cocktails are the perfect party primer and resource for the busy modern host. Latin Twist delves into the history of each country’s liquors, followed by traditional cocktails and original recipes. Go beyond mojitos and sangria to discover a luscious Passion Fruit Caipirinha from Brazil, or a fruity Borgoña from Colombia. Just one sip and you’ll be transported to the tropical destination of your dreams.

Whether you are preparing for a Latin-inspired fiesta or entertaining a few friends, these tantalizing concoctions can be prepared without hard-to-find tools or ingredients. With its gorgeous full color photos, Latin Twist is a unique gift for the adventurous mixologist, or the party planner who has it all. Each recipe is accompanied by a full-color photo. See the Latin Twist book trailer here.


Between the Margaritas, Andean Sunrise, Piscos Sours, and Caipirinhas, this book is packed with everything you could ever want to drink. Yvette and Vianney break down the Latin cocktail scene like never before! So until the next time you jet off on a fabulous Latin adventure, why not shake up a few cocktails and bring the vacation to your own kitchen?”

If you’re looking for hot-weather cocktails, Latin Twist by Vianney Rodriguez and Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack has some great takes on traditional and modern drinks. The book celebrates the signature cocktails of 18 Latin American countries plus Spain, exploring the history and native ingredients. There are also wonderful modern takes on tradition, like this berry version of the classic Cuban mojito.”

“Less a mixology or bartenders book, Latin Twist is meant for those who appreciate a well done cocktail with a story chaser. Each recipe is easy to make. The ingredients are available at your local supermarket or farmers market. There are even recipes that can be made ahead of time in bulk so the host/ess can put down the cocktail shaker and enjoy the guests. Like fine wine, these cocktails speak for themselves with a minimal amount of fussing. Think Argentina to Venezula sipping perfection.”

“By the looks of it, one would think the Tequila Sunrise would be a complicated recipe, but in reality it’s only three ingredients. I took this recipe straight from Latin Twist, where I admired it on my computer screen well before I tasted it in my ice cube chilled glass.”
