The Cocktail: 200 Fabulous Drinks
Two hundred tantalizing drink recipes made more delectable by witty commentary and fanciful illustrations.
To the uninitiated, a drink is just a drink. But connoisseurs know that what you sip is a statement and knowing one's poison is essential to making the right one. With style and sophistication, The Cocktail acquaints readers with the various personalities at the bar: gin bats its eyes behind a bookworm's glasses, whiskey scowls at passersby from the curb, and rum does a tipsy salsa with the bartender.
Featuring 200 concoctions with character, The Cocktail also shows readers the savoir faire of pairing drinks with occasions- mixing up a Rum Runner for an afternoon spent in bare feet and hammocks, or shaking up a 42 Flying Mules for a supercharged late night of raw emotion.
From Manhattans to Mojitos, Tibetan Mules to Southern Shags, The Cocktail covers drinks the world over from classics to trendy eyebrow-raisers
