In an era of overly elaborate boozy concoctions, Cocktails for Drinkers is an essential guide to getting back to the basics. This clever little book compiles over one hundred refreshingly simple drink recipes that can be made at the kitchen counter — no pretentious tinctures, syrups or infusions needed. Organized by liquor type, you’ll find page after page of instructions for whipping up classic drinks, from the Manhattan to the Moscow mule to the margarita. Along with the occasional (and optional) garnish, each mixture requires a maximum of just three ingredients, all of which can be found in the average refrigerator or home bar. Each spirit and cocktail recipe is accompanied by a laid-back, witty description and interspersed with vintage-inspired illustrations and quotes on booze from famous figures and fictional characters. The go-to guide for those who want to skip right to drinking, Cocktails for Drinkers is a must-have for any anti-mixologist.
