Mix drinks like a pro with this indispensible collection of 150 of the world's finest cocktails, all of which can be made from the comfort of your own mixing lab: your kitchen. Dan Jones shares recipes for classic tipples such as the Margarita and Martini to the more modern Thank God it's Friday and Morning After, in a format close to all men's hearts - the manual. Starting with 'Basic Tools', Dan covers the fundamental kit required to make your moonshine - the shaker, glassware, bottle opener, spirits and mixers, manly patience and know-how. He then moves on to signature drinks, social occasions, quirky ingredients and designer ice - no element of the cocktail goes unturned. With a stylish vintage design and illustrations throughout, Mixers Manual is witty and informative, set to become a classic.
