Shakespeare, Not Stirred
Shakespeare, Not Stirred: Cocktails for Your Everyday Dramas | Caroline Bicks, Michelle Ephraim
4 posts | 15 to read
In Shakespeare, Not Stirred, two professors mix equal parts booze and Bard to help you through your everyday dramas. Its like having Shakespeare right there in your living room, downing a great drink and putting your crappy day in perspective. So get out your cocktail shaker and lend him your ears. Each original cocktail and hors doeuvre recipe connects Shakespeares characters to lifes daily predicaments: Drown your sorrows after a workplace betrayal with Othellos Green-Eyed Monster Distract yourself from domestic drama with Kates Shrew-driver or Cleopatras Flings in a Blanket Recapture your youth with Pucks Magic Shrooms Mark a romantic occasion with Beatrice and Benedicks Much Ado About Frothing Featuring classic images from the Folger Shakespeare Library (hilariously doctored to feature some hard-partying Shakespearean protagonists) and Mini-Bards you can raid for extra context and commentary, Shakespeare, Not Stirred is a completely intoxicating experience. From the Hardcover edition.

Here are the Shakespeare Quote-sters (coasters) that @TheLudicReader sent in my #JolabokaflodSwap. Aren‘t they the best??

I‘m going to bellow “Have we NO WINE here?” at my husband and tell him I‘m just quoting Shakespeare. 😉

Thanks so much again, Christie! 😘😘

#TBRtemptation post! After-dinner drinks time 😎👌🏻. How can any of you resist this book? Look at it, just look at it! The cocktail recipes in this book sound so good, and you can't go wrong with two doctors who know what they're talking about 😂. @BookBabe & I will be acquiring this in due time. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

Zelma No one will be able to compete with your home bar after all of these cocktail books! 😆🍸 6y

For #day5 of the #augustphotochallenge. Mixing drinks counts as a sport, right? It's the only sport I've ever been good at. So, here's a book I found yesterday at Atticus Used Books and Teahouse in Park City. #booksandsports

TheSpinecrackersBookClub Oh how I adore this title. 7y
katedensen @MrBook See you added this to your #tbr list...apparently, it's published by the imprint at Random Penguin at which my cousin/bestie is an assistant editor. (Sidebar: I've been pestering her to join Litsy for a month.) She said she'd grab me a copy, but I'd be happy to ask her for an extra or two. 7y
MrBook Thank you, @katedfisher 😁!!! You're awesome 😊👍🏻! 7y
