Summary

Summary

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.


Author Notes

When he's not mixing cocktails, Duane Swierczynski indulges plenty of other vices. He's written several crime thrillers, including Expiration Date  and Severance Package, most of which have been optioned for TV or film. He's also written for Marvel Comics and collaborated with CSI creator Anthony E. Zuiker on a series of best-selling "digi-novel" thrillers including  Level 26: Dark Origins and Dark Prophecy. His most recent novel is  Fun & Games, the first in a trilogy of thrillers. He and his family live in Philadelphia. Visit him at www.duaneswierczynski.com or follow him on Twitter, @swierczy.
