Description

A Man's Place is Behind the Bar

Is his idea of a mixed drink adding enough fruit punch to the cheap-o whiskey he just bought to cover up the taste? Does he know when to shake or stirand why? Tucker Shaw gives guys a crash course in mixology with 65 recipes ranging from classic martinis and margaritas to newfangled drinks like the Nantucket Fizz and the Ginger Shandy. Virgin cocktail shakers will learn about equipment, glassware, types of liquor, garnishes, and mixing techniques. Recipe chapters (organized by type of booze) are fun and creative, yet are simple enough to use even after a few taste tests. This book includes drinks for every occasion, ensuring that his next attempt at entertaining won't begin and end with a bottle-opener.

Evolve. Buy this book. Seriously. Wow people (and by people I mean girls (and by girls, I mean even the taken girls (and by taken girls, I mean even the cool older girls))).

Wow other people (and by people, I mean the guests at your boss's summer house). Get invited to great parties. Get invited back. It's that simple.
