Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A good cocktail, carefully balanced and lovingly mixed, is one of life's greatest pleasures. And in "Man's Place Is Behind the Bar" the guys get a crash course in mixology with 65 recipes ranging from classic martinis and margaritas to new-fangled drinks like the Nantucket Fizz and the Ginger Shandy. There are plenty of frozen cococtions like the Frozen Irish Coffee, the Frozen Daiquiri, and the mysterious Shady Lady so be sure get that blender ready for a workout. Introductory chapters give even the most virgin cocktail shakers the info on equipment, glassware, types of liquor, garnishes and mixing techniques. Chapters are broken down by type of booze - gin, vodka, whiskey, rum, tequila, brandy, beer and wine - so you can turn quickly to your favourite libation.
