Lame name! Excellent drinks!
Everything about this book of 101 cocktail recipes is on point, except for the title. Rachel Federman has done her homework and produced a set of recipes that will surely impress your friends. I love the pocket-size of it, so I can take it to the liquor store or to the bar. These aren't stuffy drinks. These are caramel martinis and chocolate-covered strawberries and london fogs. Variations on ...

Surviving Terminal Cancer: Clinical Trials, Drug Cocktails, and Other Treatments Your Oncologist Won't Tell ...

An important book for scientists and lay people
Dr. Ben Williams is an excellent writer who provides a rare opportunity for readers to learn about his "terminal" cancer through a scientist's eyes. In short, he has already survived and thrived over 15 years after he received a diagnosis of a disease that was supposed to lead to a rapid trip to the undertaker. In part one, he shares a very personal view of his own round-trip to Hades. His wry ...
The Craft of the Cocktail: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Master Bartender, with 500 Recipes
Clarkson Potter, 2010
Professional Bartender highly recommends
I'm a bartender in Key West, Florida. Unlike many bartenders I know, bartending is NOT something I am doing until I figure out what I want to do with my life...bartending is my chosen career. And when I grow up, I want to be Dale Degroff. I have carried this book into work every night for the past 6 1/2 years. Its tattered, stained and the binder is falling apart, yet I would not part ...
How to Instantly Connect with Anyone: 96 All-New Little Tricks for Big Success in Relationships
I have read another Lwil Lowndes book--Undercover Sex Signals--and really liked it. With this one, I wanted something that would help me connect better with women. The book delievered. It's not necessarily about getting over your shyness--though that was a concern for me--it's about having that confidence to see a connection when one happens. Great good that I am using in conjunction with How to ...
Wine Tasting Notebook
Steve De Long
De Long Company
I researched several wine tasting note 'book's and after reading reviews and seeing how this was laid out and it's size I chose this one. It's really great. I've been tasting and drinking wine for over 20yrs and it just never occurred to me to keep tasting notes. Now I wish I had notes on all of the ones I've had over the years because it's fun, it helps tune your palate and helps you keep ...

Taking Cocktails to New Heights
The San Francisco restaurant Absinthe is revered for its bartenders, and here we get a sneak peak into the way their minds work. It's a book that includes some philosophy, a lot of recipes, and even more opinions on things that really make a difference. Like ice, or glassware. We have a few cocktail books we swear by, including Dale DeGroff's classic Craft of the Cocktail. While there are some ...
Good Spirits: Recipes, Revelations, Refreshments, and Romance, Shaken and Served with a Twist
Photographs by Melissa Punch
Harvard Common Press
The next best thing to your own personal bartender
What makes this book so challenging to review is that author A.J. Rathbun expertly mixes recipes with wit and enough trivia to keep you entertained, educated and inspired through more than 450 pages of libations. This is more than a recipe book. Rathbun's guide is the next best thing to having your own personal bartender. I've carried this book around since last December; packing it to my ...
A Brazil Nut, an Earl, a Barrister, and Chaos Theory
When chaos theory is mentioned in the popular press, it is close to inevitable that the example given starts with the flapping of a butterfly's wings in the Amazon basin. In this case, the chaos ensues when Uncle Fred, the fifth Earl of Ickenham, borrows a catapult (which would be called a slingshot here in the US) from the young cousin of a member of the Drones Club, at which Uncle Fred is ...

P. G. Wodehouse
Penguin Books Ltd
Why did I wait 20 years to return to Wodehouse
The Wodehouse world is a world free of suffering - a kind of return to the garden of eden. Perhaps this is why, dying that I am, I have found the books so invigorating - the books are a great tonic - a true pain killer. Anyway, in this Blandings novel, impersonation is very important with Lord Ickenham coming to Blandings at Emswoth's request but hacing to pretend to be the London Brain surgeon ...

This is a must have classic tome on ...

Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails : From the Alamagoozlum Cocktail to the Zombie
What a cocktail guide should be
The only reviewer who gave this book less than five stars (and only three at that!) has completely missed the point. If you have numerous cocktail guides in your collection, this one will probably be the smallest and you can bet that it will be also be the one you pull out most often. From the anecdotes to the delightful photographs of vintage spirits and antique bar tools, this book is as ...
Beachbum Berry's Grog Log
The ONLY Tiki Recipe book you'll ever need
Joe Bob Briggs from UPI called this "the best bartender's guide for tropical and rum drinks ever published". That, my friends, is an understatement. Forget those fancy and useless trendy tiki books that have to be gussied up with Shag illustrations and glossy printing, if you've already bought those: use 'em as coasters for the wonderfully entertaining and informative "Grog Log". From a pair who ...
Shaken Not Stirred: A Celebration of the Martini
Anistatia R. Miller
Jared M. Brown
Shake shake shake, shake shake shake...
...shake your 'tini? I was pleased to receive this book recently as a gift and couldn't wait to peel back the front cover and begin seeing what it had in stock for me. The book was a perfect companion as I'd just gotten a set of 4 martini glasses and a shaker/strainer and was eager to put them to good use. But since my nose was too buried in this concise little text, I didn't have any need for ...
The Little Black Book of Cocktails: The Essential Guide to New & Old Classics (Little Black Books)
Peter Pauper Press, 2003
Cutest Little Book!
This little book is so great for gifts and to keep on hand for a party! The best part is that there are several ways to look up drinks so it's easy if you only have certain things on hand. For example you can look it up just by the alcohol you have. Really useful book in a cute little package!
