    • Price: $35.00

    An appreciation and celebration of one of the most popular liquors in the world, including ratings of more than 100 brands.

In addition, there are recipes for tequila-based cocktails and for dishes using tequila, as well as professional ratings of more than a hundred brands. The lively text is enhanced by Michael Calderwood's beautiful photography and the specially commissioned artwork.

Like Proust's madeleine, there are certain drinks that can take you back to a perfect time of pure pleasure. Cocktails A Go-Go sends you on that trip, with more than one hundred recipes for favorite drinks from the past along with the stories behind their invention, and nostalgic visuals that evoke the era. With the recent revival of cocktail culture at home gatherings, bars, and restaurants, drinkers have developed an ever-expanding and more demanding palate. Cocktails A Go-Go rediscovers a slew of long-lost concoctions to quench the unending thirst for the hot new drink. While several books have tapped into this craze, none offers this combination of historical information, practical real drink recipes, and kitschy images. Filled with fun TV and film stills, posters, and vintage advertisements, the book hits the Generation X nostalgia nerve that is rooted in a past of tiki-mania, pu pu platters, disco music, and lounge lizards. It also serves as an entertaining sourcebook, with tips throughout for planning theme cocktail parties complete with music, food, and decor suggestions.

A bartender is the manager of moods, the master of mixology.

    Certain scenarios are played out over and over again in bars everywhere. The questions are basically the same; only the details vary: What's in a true Singapore Sling? How long has the Martini been around? What's the difference between a Fix and a Fizz? A reference book is as necessary to a bartender as ice.
