From the Publisher
The Oxford Dictionary defines cocktail as any combination of diverse elements, especailly potent ones. Mondo Cocktail is as much about the potent elements of literature, history, sociology and business as it is about gin, scotch, vodka and rum. This is a unique, fun and informative narrative history of the cocktail.
