Great info on ingredients & how to mix cocktails.
REALLY wish I had read the section on "Dealing with Drunks" before I met my husband-

I love this guide! The writing is sharp and often hilarious, and it's packed to the brim with all kinds of useful information about liquid happiness. I'm really impressed that this book is both funny and fast-paced yet also the most practical of how-to guides. One of my favorite features is the "100 cocktail recipe flashcards" sections -- my next summer shindig will be BOMB! Thanks Ladies!

This book is awesome. A fast, fun read, it's also packed with more useful info than you can shake a (swizzle) stick at. Insider tips from a bartending pro, cool illustrations to guide you through (ever wanted to know how to make citrus twist garnishes- you will now) and a crash course for anyone looking to switch careers or supplement their current one. As someone who wasn't looking to get into bartending but rather be able to mix a fab cocktail at home for myself or a crowd, This Girl Walks Into A Bar nails it. The Home Mixology section lists all sorts of ingredients to play with to create your own signature cocktail. Cocktail Party 101 is a step by step, level by level primer on how to mix for a crowd with everything from supply lists to drink and food suggestions. With three levels to work through I have no doubt I'll be a bartend at home pro in no time. I think this would be a great hostess gift too, instead of the usual bottle of wine (but maybe with a bottle of tequila!).

I have been looking for a reader-friendly guide to mixing drinks at home. In the past I have served my guests good wines and easy Gin-and-Tonics because I was afraid to mix drinks and fail, so I never ventured into the happy realm of providing choices of cocktails. This Girls Walks Into a Bar, page by page, is giving me confidence to relax, mix, enjoy, serve! I love the flash cards, the personal experiences, and the top sense of humor. A terrific book!! Thank You, Amazon.com!

Love this book! I've never seen anything quite like it. I have several cocktail books with recipes, but this one is all that plus fun reading about how to set up a bar and mix drinks, either professionally or socially. It's well written, with a clever, entertaining style. Great idea for a gift - pair it with a couple martini glasses and a shaker, cute beverage napkins, etc.

One can learn a great deal from this book about mixing drinks, but the book is also witty and shrewd about women dealing with men in certain social situations. A good read as well as practical. Highly recommended. Charles Smith, Tucson, AZ

Smart and savvy, This Girl Walks Into a Bar de-mystifies the art of making a drink while it entertains with stories and tips backed by experience. A fun read, I'd recommend it to anyone considering bartending and will certainly use it as a reference next time I entertain guests. Its clear organization and great illustrations of tools, techniques, and barware - along with removable cocktail flashcards - make it a unique and useful book for home gatherings and anyone considering a new or supplemental job. A valued addition to my "cookbook" library, and a practical gift for friends at a reasonable price.
