Shakespeare, Not Stirred: cocktails for your everyday dramas
A gift book to savour.
Let the Bard into your lounge and have him whip up some sharp cocktails and soothing snacks for the comedy or tragedy in your life. From ‘Get Thee to a Winery: girls’ night out’ to ‘Exit, Pursued by a Beer: drowning your sorrows’, this stage-sensitive, merrily blended book brings a Shakespearean swirl to life’s everyday highs and lows. Readers who downed Tequila Mockingbird and felt the force of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars will thrill to its intoxicating mix of literary nerdery and cheeky wordplay.
Caroline Bicks and Michelle Ephraim are eminent English professors and eminent merry punsters. While poking a little fond fun at the man who gave them their careers, they dish up a delightful high-low mash of food, drink, and drama. Shakespeare, Not Stirred pops all the corks. Remember, with Falstaff: ‘thin drink doth so over-cool their blood…’
`A boozy, Bardy delight.' * Metro * 'Shakespeare, Not Stirred is the perfect gift for that friend of yours who fancies himself a lofty intellectual but actually, when you get right down to it, just loves to drink.' -- Rachel Dratch 'After guzzling every libation in Shakespeare, Not Stirred I became the most eloquent and witty drunk in my town, and so can you!' -- Gary Shteyngart, author of Little Failure and Super Sad True Love Story 'I love a good cocktail and have loved Shakespeare since high school and I'm always wanting to try new things (in the case of cocktails) and trying to remember the plot twists (in the case of Shakespeare).Reading Shakespeare, not Stirred gave me both - wonderful new cocktails to try and an amazing refresher English lit class by two women who happen to be English professors and incredibly funny.I'm now thinking of starting a regular book club/cocktail party to go through all the plays ... and drinks.' -- Rosalind Wiseman, author of 'Queen Bees and Wannabes', the basis for the film 'Mean Girls' 'Shakespeare famously wrote, "Better a tipsy witty fool than a foolish tipless wit"... or something like that.
