The authors of Atomic Cocktails strike again, this time with a feminine twist. Highballs High Heels combines '50s cocktail party nostalgia with career girl independence. Order up a Bikinitini when you're feeling sassy, get naughty with a cool Gin and Sin, or a Shirley Temple's Evil Twin, for those times when you just want to be left alone. And for girls with "inner" spirit, there's an entire chapter devoted to nonalcoholic drinks. In addition to the 50 fabulous swizzle-stick sensations and an essential essay on women and the art of drinking with style, this guide is also bursting with hip party-planning ideas for cocktail soires, dinners, and summer bashes, including a how-to section for setting up a swanky bar at home. Highballs High Heels is perfect for any woman longing to release her hidden grrrlll.
