Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Christmas present You know how you are always looking for that perfect present book. The one that's funny, informative and re -readable (is that a word?), well this is the book. I caught myself laughing out loud on the bus while reading parts of this book and now I know how to make the perfect Mojito. A whole bunch of friends are getting this book for Christmas and it's great to have around just for those people you forgot to get a present for and they show up with one of those lovely things just to make you feel bad. Well give them this book, as long as they aren't alcoholics, that is.
