Cocktails are back! That's the word in every fashionable watering place on the planet, from the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden (home of the Absolut Wonder), to the Indigo Bar in Mumbai, India (where they serve a Bailey's Infused Strawberry and Hazelnut Lassi). Here, for today's new cocktail fans, as well as the sophisticates who never stopped drinking them, is the ultimate guide to cocktails and the far-flung places where they were invented. The 80 authentic recipes are introduced by a colorful history of cocktails and interspersed with fascinating anecdotes about their origins, their creators, and the legendary bars where they're served. And there's even a thirst-quenching selection of non-alcoholic "mocktails."
