As a cocktail enthusiast and home bartender, I'm always looking for good books on the subject which, sadly, are in short supply. The subtitle is a bit of a turn off and this book suffers from the author's whimsical, pleased with herself tone and approach. She seems to treat cocktails as if they're cute. That said, it's handsomely packaged and illustrated and there are a handful of good recipes.
