9780061963308: How to Booze: Exquisite Cocktails and Unsound Advice

Offering exquisite cocktails and unsound advice, How to Booze by Jordan Kaye and Marshall Altier pairs the perfect cocktail with unfailingly entertaining advice for all of life’s most alcohol-inducing moments. Much more than just a guide to mixology, How to Booze is a hilarious and remarkably prescient, if somewhat degenerate, guide to life—or at least that part of life that would be greatly improved in the company of Johnny Walker or Jack Daniels.

Review:

“If you’re not sure how to booze, this book will lead the way. If you think that you do know how to booze, it will show you where you’ve been going wrong. A delightful read with an opinion all its own, along with style, wisdom, and lots of sarcasm.” (gaz regan, co-host of ardentspirits.com and author of The Joy of Mixology)

“[A] sharp guide to drinks for every conceivable occasion…buoyed by wit as bracing as a gin martini …Rather than devolving into sheer novelty, misogyny or mean-spiritedness, the authors deftly walk the line… between the educational and the irreverent, making for a terrifically entertaining guide to informed imbibing.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Prepare to make delicious drinks and then spurt them out your nose all over your kitchen laughing at this naughty cocktail and awkward-social-situation survival guide….[E]ncourages cocktail consumption and mischief!” (Drink Me magazine)

“[E]ntertaining….like getting a talking-to from a bartender who’s seen it all …. The drinks advice is remarkably good, from empowering explanations of cocktail fundamentals to variations on classics that are well worth trying.” (Booklist)

“[O]ne part bar guide, two parts liquor love sonnet....the book serves up classic cocktails and delightfully witty reasons to drink them.” (Associated Press)

From the Back Cover:

There is a perfect drink for every situation. So what should you drink tonight? It depends . . .

Are you stalking your ex? Try a pisco sour.

Drowning out the ticking of your biological clock? A bee's knees will do.

Spoiling for a vicious brawl with your dearest loved ones? A tipperary helps you get there.

Sinking into debauchery underneath the mistletoe at your boss's holiday party? A presbyterian, what else?

How to Booze has all the answers on what to drink when. Armed with nearly one hundred iconic recipes, useful facts on technique and ingredients, and more than enough advice to get you into trouble, you will now know just the right drink for the occasion—and how to prepare it likea professional.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 202 x 136 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Armed with cutting wit and a degenerate world view, How To Booze provides frank, humorous musings on the contemporary art of drinking and the reasons we do it. You may find yourself rendezvousing with your ex-or trying to ignore the fact that the person you are bringing back to your apartment is almost fantastically unattractive. You may be making an embarrassment of yourself at your high school reunion-or trying to impress your weirdo in-laws. Or maybe you just want that last taste before heading to an AA meeting. Whatever the situation, Altier and Kaye have the perfect cocktail for temporary self-improvement. Along with the delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes and plenty of useful information on mixing drinks, they offer amusingly accurate insights about our destructive, flawed, beautiful selves, peeling back the psychological layers to discover why we re really drinking in the first place.
