ACKNOWLEDGMENTSIt may seem strange to thank your parents first andforemost in a cocktail book, but I have to thankmine—Billy and Estelle Parker. Because I was an onlychild, I always got to tag along with my dad andmom on business trips around the country. Theseoften occurred in swanky restaurants in the heydayof disco—the 1970s. While the food was delicious,the business conversations were dull for a kid. Theflashing lights and glittery bottles of the adjoiningbars, on the other hand, fascinated me, and I fell inlove with bars and mixing at an early age. Later inlife, when I realized I needed a trade to fall back onin case journalism failed, my dad sent me to bartending school. So thanks, Mom and Dad.I’d also like to thank the numerous friends andcolleagues who sent me ideas for drinks for this collection. In no particular order: Lucy Tallon, cocktailgoddess extraordinaire of London and Africa;Stephanie Owen, vintage cocktail archivist;Stephanie Caruthers, creator of the most uniquecocktail thus far in the twenty-first century; AlexHeard, long-time editor who knows a good Southerncocktail; and Wanda Stone and Kathy Williams,keepers of the cookbooks.A special thanks to the person who keeps me ontrack for all projects, my agent, Erin Reel—Los Angeles superbabe and visionary who listens carefullyand makes wise decisions about the future anddirection of my work.Most of all to Wonder twin Glen Hooks who wentbeyond the call of duty to help with this book. Asalways, he offered unwavering support, silly laughter(especially when I was drowning in thousands ofcocktail recipes at an ungodly hour of the night),keen insight, sage advice, and the desperatelyneeded push (with plenty of Starbucks coffee) tomake sure this book was born.

INTRODUCTION—Set-upso argument: cocktails are sexy and sophisticated. They sparkle with mysterious possibilities. Imagine a night in a neon-lit club. Ahandsome man spots a gorgeous woman. He sends adrink over. She wonders: who is this good-looking manwho just bought me a Cosmopolitan? He wonders: if Ibuy her two, will she go back to my place? After three,will she still be standing?Endless seduction lingers in a cocktail glassregardless of season or setting. The beauty of a coldclear martini, a glass of perfect red sangria, or asparkling vintage concoction transformed into atwenty-first century incarnation is liquid anticipation. For some, the thrill is in the warmth that comeswith downing one of these potables. For others, it’sall in the shake, stir, or blend.When I was four, I toddled into a bar adjoined toa restaurant owned by my parents’ friend. Instantly,I was hooked, not by the darkness of the joint or thelocal television celebs who frequented the place, butN

I n t ro d u c t i o n1by the jewels behind the bar. The bottles of amberand emerald, sapphire and ruby hypnotized me. Ihad never seen anything more beautiful.The fascination continued through my teens.Whenever I dined out, a Shirley Temple was a must.My dad preferred scotch and water; my motherstraight water. Curiosity about how liquor tasted wasnever my game; the life of a barfly was hardlyappealing. No, I wanted to mix. Let me behind thebar and I’d whip up a concoction to rival any.Eventually bartending school beckoned as awacky adventure I longed to have, and I mixed to myheart’s content. Mixology is certainly a handy tradeto have at parties to win friends and influence people. And practice does, indeed, make perfect.It’s impossible to learn all the drinks in the world.Literally thousands exist and more are created everyday along with new liqueurs—some even appear toglow in the dark. Certainly, in the early part of thetwentieth century, a mixer would have better lucklearning all the cocktails than he or she would today.Mixologists often named cocktails after the hotel orbar that birthed them or for the patron who desiredthem. Cocktails such as the Daiquiri and the Mojitobecame famous in other countries and found theirway to popularity in the United States. In today’sfast-paced world of starlets and playboys jettingaround the globe, the international cocktail is nolonger so easy to define.But a good drink is. Whether it’s a Bloody Marybefore noon, a non-alcoholic Safe Sex on the Beachafter a sweaty workout, or a Garza’s nightcap at bedtime, a well-made drink can be exhilarating, like, well,sex. And, depending on the category, just as complicated. Take tropical drinks, which are built with various kinds of rum and juices to get that island feel. Butthe classic drinks, the ones that have stayed throughthe decades from Sinatra to Sting, often only have twoingredients, but they are no less for it.

In the end, drinking—like wardrobes and lovers—comes down to personal taste. You can wear themost popular fashions, but that isn’t nearly as muchfun as finding your own style or yes, your own cocktail. That’s where this book comes in. Use it to trysomething new and unexpected. Maybe, after ahealthy amount of sampling, you’ll find that youreally do like the same kind of martinis your friends,or even your dear old dad, like. Or you may simply behappy to stick with the frozen daiquiri you loved incollege. With a little courage and experimentation,though, you might just find your drink of choice issomething else entirely.So explore the liquor store. Buy something exotic.Begin mixing. Expect a whole new world of adventure to open up. And remember this toast: may yourenemies be lethargic and your lovers energetic.Publisher’s Note: This book and the recipes contained herein are intended for those of a legal drinking age. Please drink responsibly and ensure you andyour guests have a designated driver when consuming alcoholic beverages.21000 BEST BARTENDER’S RECIPES
