The illustrations in this guide are a welcome departure from shallow depth-of-field closeups of misty glassware, with a good deal of humor. But the recipes are nothing special, given the wealth of material in print.

I saw this book, and decided to treat myself for an early father's day gift.
Glad I did so.
Unlike other cocktail books (and I do own a few...), the book is peppered with interesting and funny tidbits regarding the cocktails. So far, the biggest winner was the local liquor store... I mix cocktails for me and friends, and found enough recipes that cater to men and women, so no one is left out.

This is a fantastic book for both the novice and the experienced cocktail drinkers. Filled with witty illustrations on every page, this book is not only fun to look at, but hilarious to read. With recipes from the "Mint Julep" to "How to Make a Blue Blazer without setting your house on fire," there is a cocktail in here for everyone. I now have a nice long list of new drinks to try out. The recipes are easy to read (and there's a helpful index of where to locate them) and there are great stories with tidbits of information throughout. I was more than pleased with my purchase, and plan on purchasing another copy of this book as a gift in the near future.
