Product description

Review

"A thoroughly useful and enjoyable compendium of drinking lore and knowledge, with an ample dose of much-needed cynicism, too often lacking in books of this type."
--Philip Greene, co-founder of The Museum of the American Cocktail and author of To Have and Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion

"There is, as yet, no perfect user's guide for life. But for the many moments in our lifetimes when a decent drink is required--whether it's a crisp pilsner on a summer afternoon, a glass of champagne on a special day, or a dry martini when the clock strikes five--Adam McDowell's Drinks: A User's Guide has you covered."
--Paul Clarke, executive editor of Imbibe magazine, and author of The Cocktail Chronicles

"If you don't know how to drink, this book is for you. If you do know how to drink, this book is also for you, since everyone is sure to be charmed by Adam McDowell's sage and friendly advice about what to order, in any setting. After years of tweaking his philosophy of drink, McDowell has finally shared his accumulated knowledge in this invaluable resource. Not since Kingsley Amis has reading about drinking been this much fun."
--Christine Sismondo, author of America Walks Into a Bar
