A comedic book at heart, this is perhaps my favorite cocktail guide. These recipes are full of as much wry wit as rye whiskey, as much dry humor as dry vermouth. McCartney—author of such impulse-buy classics as The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place and The Little Book of Sloth Philosophy—has crafted the perfect counterpoint to all those fussily pretentious mixology books brimming with elaborate, ornate cocktails you’ll never make. Grab some white wine (serving size: one bottle) and start drinking like a normal again! ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau
