This cookbook has a copyright of 2006. I have no idea where I got this book . I have never cooked from this before.
This is a cute little book, that, in case you haven't already guessed, just has alcohol shots. The start of the book has a few bartender tips (like how to layer drinks) and a page on choosing the "right shot for the job" (Obliterators can pack a wallop!). The other chapters are divided by alcohol...Cordials, Vodka and Gin, Whiskey, Tequila, Rum, Holidays and Summer Haze (shots that would work for Christmas or Valentines Day), and One More for the Road (not sure why they call them that).
It's a fun book with awesome drink titles...Grapes of Bath (gin and purple grape juice), Armadillo Tracks (white tequila and rye whiskey), Sacrelicious (Bacardi Limon, Midori, Rose's lime juice). Though not every shot has a photo, the ones they show are pretty cool...the layered drinks are amazing (The Candy Cane for Christmas which is layers of Grenadine, Vodka and Green creme de menthe is beautiful).
Nothing looks hard to make. A well stocked bar would have most of the ingredients, but there will be some alcohol that you might not use for more than these shots...I say then you figure out how to use the leftover alcohol in cooking :)
This would be a great book if you usually have themed parties and wanted a cute little shot to go with your theme. Parents going on a cruise? Serve them an Alaskan Oil Slick (Blue Curacoa, Peppermint Shnapps and Jagermeister layered in a shot glass) at their going away party. It would also be a great book if you were young and a partier and wanted to impress your friends and get really drunk with cool looking (and sounding ) shots! Or like me, every once in a while, you just want to drink something fun.
