    "The Bloody Mary : A Connoisseur's Guide to the World's Most Complex Cocktail"
    3/5,
    One of the perfect beverages on the planet is in fact, the Bloody Mary. Served with, horseradish, fresh lime Worcestershire, Tabasco, ice, celery and tomato juice, its not really a drink but a meal. Lunch in a tumbler.


    The Bloody Mary book takes you through the ritual that is the Bloody Mary: what to build it with and what to eat with it. Which tomato juice is the best, will V8 or Clamato juice work? Should one add wasabi or fennel? Why? Why not? If you dont like horseradish or vodka, there are recipes for sake and soy sauce. Are you a big fan of Aquavite? Okay, there is a recipe for that too and a whole host of different styles of Bloody Mary. Build simple, gourmet or sublime cocktails with this book, Christopher OHara answers all questions in depth with humor and insight.


    A great gift for party host, shower gift, and bachelor / bachelorett pad must! Wonderful addition to the library of the avid Brunch enthusiast. Find out the secret to Sirio Maccionis Bloody Mary and what Harrys has to do with its history. Respect this book for the hangover cures information alone: how to avoid one by partaking responsibly and what to do if you didnt. You will become thirsty just by leafing though it with its sharp photos, fonts and layouts.


    Not just a beautiful cocktail book, but one though diminutive in size, holds its own on your coffee table.
