Mardee Haidin Regan, author of The Bartender s Best Friend, and Gary Regan, author of The Bartender s Bible If this fun, breezy book doesn t get your party started, you should consider investing in a new set of friends. David Wondrich, cocktail columnist for Esquire The next time you re looking to have some fun, turn to Party Drinks! for inspiration. From the classic Martini to a sexy Singapore Sling, Party Drinks! has the recipe to jump start any party! Colin Cowie, author of Dinner After Dark It s so nice to get back to the classic recipes for today s cocktails. Too many cocktails have been brutalized by know-it-all bartenders who think waving a bottle of vermouth over a glass of gin makes it a Martini not! The Martini recipe in this book passed the father-in-law test and my father-in-law is the most discriminating cocktail drinker I know. That says it all.
