Bartenders have a knack for knowing the right libation for every occasion, but when you don't want to spend $15 on a martini at a bar, what's a girl to do? Make your own! Written by a bartender (and a lawyer), How to Booze: Exquisite Cocktails and Unsound Advice ($10) is full of deliciously snarky cocktail recipes like the Your Neighborhood Librarian's Nightmare in Pink, The French 75, and The Tipperary. Each is matched to a specific occasion: The Pisco Sour is ideally suited to stalking your ex, apparently. Who knew?
