and Romance, Shaken and Served with a Twist

by A. J. Rathbun

In Good Spirits, mixologist and poet A.J. Rathbun presents 450 cocktail recipes featuring a variety of spirits, mixers, and garnishes.

For those who appreciate the art and craft of the cocktail, Good Spirits is the authoritative collection of libations that's as lively as a great party. Rathbun's style, wit, and unabashed enthusiasm for his subject will encourage even casual drinkers to give his creative recipes a try.

Some recipes are scaled up to serve a crowd; others are meant for intimate gatherings of two or designed for a single serving. All are surrounded by tangy insights, juicy information on liquors and liqueurs, exuberant bar talk and party chatter, and enough home entertaining ideas to keep anyone's calendar full throughout the year.
