Note to Self: Atomic Bodyslams to Whiskey Zippers

Atomic Bodyslams to Whiskey Zippers: Cocktails for the 21st Century By: Adam Rocke
Non-fiction, food/cooking, 190 pages
Book Count: 28

This is a rather poorly researched book. It lists ales as a type of lager, arranges drinks by how powerful he thinks it is (although not by alcohol amounts), doesn't know why some drinks are shaken and some stirred, has a recipe for soda being "Very similar to COLA, without the color or sugar," has other ones that have the wrong alcohol in it (and in well known ones that everyone agrees on the ingredients to) and has useless hangover cures listed as "Sure-Fire Hangover Remedies". There are a number of easy, good looking recipes in here, but without knowing their names it is hard to find and there are also a number of ones that even he says are gross in the book itself. I am glad that the 50 cents that I spent on the book also went to help my local library, after reading this.
