Item Description...
Divided into nine categorized sections, a wide-ranging collection of drink recipes makes recommendations for pairing the most appropriate beverage with a given occasion, includes coverage of both classic and trendy drinks, and includes whimsical commentary. Original.

Publishers Description
Two hundred tantalizing drink recipes made more delectable by witty commentary and fanciful illustrations.

To the uninitiated, a drink is just a drink. But connoisseurs know that what you sip is a statement and knowing one's poison is essential to making the right one. With style and sophistication, The Cocktail acquaints readers with the various personalities at the bar: gin bats its eyes behind a bookworm's glasses, whiskey scowls at passersby from the curb, and rum does a tipsy salsa with the bartender.

Featuring 200 concoctions with character, The Cocktail also shows readers the savoir faire of pairing drinks with occasions- mixing up a Rum Runner for an afternoon spent in bare feet and hammocks, or shaking up a 42 Flying Mules for a supercharged late night of raw emotion.

From Manhattans to Mojitos, Tibetan Mules to Southern Shags, The Cocktail covers drinks the world over from classics to trendy eyebrow-raisers. This charming book is divided into nine sections according to liquor-each introduced with a whimsically written profile:

- Champagne: The flirty, giddy staple, tottering around on heels, but not without substance and body- champagne is the leggy blonde who also boasts a degree in neuroscience.
- Gin: If gin had a wardrobe, it would be full of pleated skirts and ruffled shirts, lots of tweed and brooches.
- Tequila: Pin a red rose in your hair and dust on some bronzer-time to be saucy and brazen because, after all, the tequila made you do it. . . .
- Vodka: As racy as a Bond girl, as alluring as a fifties Hollywood starlet, and as compelling as a KGB agent dabbling in a little Russian roulette.

Throughout, Kat Macleod's collages personify cocktails as alluring women with devil-may-care airs-you'll want to cozy up to the bar with all of them. Both mischievous and elegant, this is a book to lift anyone's spirits.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
lovely illustrations, difficult recipes  Nov 13, 2008
I admit I bought this book because the illustrations were so lovely, but will probably use a few of the drink recipes. The book is better for someone who has some experience in mixology because the recipes involve things like infusions as well as hard-to-find ingredients. I'm happy with the pictures, but others might be frustrated by the lack of in-depth directions.
Pretty predictable stuff  Jan 11, 2007
This is a beautifully produced book with lovely illustrations, but it contained almost no drinks I wanted to try (among the new options) and very predictable traditional recipes for others. I have several books of this type and it is the only one which is essentially of no added value.
