A Man's Place is Behind the Bar
Artist/Designer: Tucker Shaw
A Man's Place is Behind the Bar -- Is his idea of a mixed drink adding enough fruit punch to the cheap-o whiskey he just bought to cover up the taste? Does he know when to shake or stir—and why?
Shaw gives guys a crash course in mixology with 65 recipes ranging from
classic martinis and margaritas to newfangled drinks like the Nantucket
Fizz and the Ginger Shandy. Virgin cocktail shakers will learn about
equipment, glassware, types of liquor, garnishes, and mixing
techniques. Recipe chapters (organized by type of booze) are fun and
creative, yet are simple enough to use even after a few taste tests.
This book includes drinks for every occasion, ensuring that his next
attempt at entertaining won't begin and end with a bottle-opener.
Tucker Shaw is currently the dining critic for the Denver Post. He is the author of Gentlemen, Start Your Ovens.
