The Southern Belle and the Karma Sip Tra. The Alabama Slammer and the Autumn Thunder. The Couture Fizz and the Vanilla Kiss. These are not just drinks, but statements of intent, says hard-sipping rock journalist Jane Rocca. Collected here are original recipes from bartenders at leading bars around the world that link together a spirit for every soundtrack. Learn about the warm companionship of vodka, the old-school primness of gin, and the tropical abandon of rum. Drink in the geisha chic of sake, and discover why whisky and its white trash cousin bourbon are no longer just a guy’s best friend. With 80 illustrated cocktails you’ll be throwing the best cocktail rocking parties in town. From indie to rock, soul, country, and even the cheesy strains of karaoke, this fun and fashionable compendium distills the personality of each music genre into the perfect accompanying cocktails.
