Autor: Vincent Pollard

Its been a century since the prohibition sent Americans scurrying to speakeasies. And decades since the movie industry turned mobsters into celebrities. Now the two worlds collide in this highly original pocket-sized collection that creates signature cocktails for gangsters of every stripe. Theres the »Al Capone«, a mixture of rye and Campari thats as charming and dangerous as its namesake. The »Bonnie Parker« adds Chicory Pecan Bitters to the whiskey Bonnie enjoyed when she wasnt lobbing bottles out the window of her getaway car. Theres even the Stephanie St Clair, a cocktail with Caribbean rum thats as smooth as she was. Famous characters from much-loved recent tv series including The Sopranos, Peaky Blinders, and Boardwalk Empire are seen alongside iconic roles from classic films such as The Godfather, Goodfellas, Scarface, and Millers Crossing. Each is illustrated by acclaimed comic book artist Shawn McManus. Whether youre a budding mixologist or gearing up to watch The Godfather, this handy book provides the perfect blend of slick recipes and popular culture.
