Join Anderson's Bookshop for a virtual cocktail event with J.M. Hirsch, the editorial director of Milk Street!  He'll talk about the book and mix up some drinks - live! - and you can follow along from the comfort of your own home.  Revolutionize the way you drink at home with simple recipes and common ingredients -- no obscure liquors or fussy techniques needed 

Register here and you will receive the Zoom link in your confirmation email.

Anderson's realizes that this is a challenging time for many people.  We are offering a variety of ticket options so that you can choose what is the best fit for you right now.  Every book ticket will include a signed (bookplate) copy of the book, and all donations will go towards supporting our independent small business and our employees.

Please note that we can only ship to US addresses! Please choose the ticket that includes shipping if you would like your book mailed to you.

More about the book:
Are you done with generic gin and tonics, mediocre Manhattans and basic martinis? You can use pantry staples and basic liquors to produce more than 200 game-changing craft cocktails worthy of a seat at the bar.

Many cocktail books call for hard-to-find ingredients and complicated techniques that can frustrate home cocktail makers. Shake Strain Done shows a better way:
  • If you can shake, strain, stir and turn on a blender, you can make great cocktails.
  • No tedious secondary recipes hidden between the lines.
  • No mysteries. You'll know what each drink will taste like before you pick up a bottle.
  • No fancy equipment needed. A shaker, strainer and spoon are as exotic as it gets.
  • The ingredients are mostly pantry and bar staples--things you already have on hand.
Every drink is rated by its characteristics -- Warm, Refreshing, Sweet, Sour, Bitter, Fruity, Herbal, Creamy, Spicy, Strong and Smoky -- to help expand your horizons and find more drinks to love.

These are drinks with the sophistication of a high-end speakeasy, minus the fuss, like:
  • The Sazerac 2.0 - a spice cabinet update that takes the classic back to its origins
  • A new White Russian that lightens the load with coconut water instead of cream
  • A grownup Singapore Sling that's fruity without tasting like fruit punch
  • A Scorched Margarita that uses the broiler to char those lemons and limes
  • A feisty new Gin and Tonic in which black pepper is the star ingredient
  • And plenty of originals, like the Pooh Bear. Butter, honey and bourbon? Yes, please! And Mistakes Were Made, for tiki time
