Instead of another boring martini book or the umpteenth swinging Rat Pack cocktail tome, here's the world's first practical guide to booze. Simply flip to the occasion and we'll give you the libation, complete with recipes, secrets, and tips. You're getting married tomorrow? Drink this. Got a new job? Cheers, and drink this. Getting divorced? Drink this, and make it a double. Need to lose weight? Want to impress your co-workers? Trying to freshen your breath? Don't worry. Alcohol aficionado Duane Swierczynski will give you the recipes and rationale behind every mixed drink imaginable...and then some. Chock-full of Margaritas, White Russians, Gin Rickeys, Harvey Wallbangers, Cosmopolitans, Hot Toddys, Jungle Juice, Eggnog, and 143 other favourites, The Perfect Drink for Every Occasion is comprehensive enough to be the only bar book you'll ever need.
