"Matt and Jenny are some of the most conscientious and diligent people I know, and that shines through in this collection of drink recipes. It can be challenging work to find healthful yet flavorful substitutes in a medium as calorically rich and high in sugar as cocktails, but Matt has done just that in a way that is interesting, intelligent, and deeply approachable." —Jordan David Smith, head bartender, Atomix
