Atomic Bodyslams to Whiskey Zippers: Cocktails for the 21st Century (Paperback)

This is not your father's bar guide! Adam Rocke, who has poured with the best of them while tending bar in hip Hollywood clubs, gives you instead a formulary of more than 1,000 mixed drinks that will qualify you as an instant cocktail guru. Even better, this manual will enable you, as host, to fulfill virtually any drink order, no matter how weird, arcane, or outrageous, in less time than it takes to say "Gorgon's Last Dance" (see p. 115). Beginning with the "Usual Suspects, " traditional favorites we've imbibed since our 21st birthday, and going on to concoctions guaranteed to render those little gray cells comatose, you will find here every imaginable combination of spirits, liqueurs, brandies, aperitifs, and alcoholic beverages known to man, woman, and intergalactic bar hopper. Included too are tasty, low-toxicity party drinks; exotic island drinks served in quart-size hurricane goblets, hot mug drinks to warm up cold bodies (and minds); drinks for the designated driver that only look alcoholic; and author-tested remedies for that morning-after malaise we wistfully call a hangover. Whether you're a party hound, an incurable experimenter, or simply a host who dreads hearing your next guest politely ask for a Zombie, Pink Flamingo, Knuckle-Buster, Tango in Bolivia, or any other cocktail you never heard of (let alone thought you'd ever have to make), this little manual will not let you down. And if you hate to unravel wordy recipes, try one of Adam Rocke's concise directions: "Pour over ice, stir. Cherry garnish." That was a long one!
