Shakespeare, Not Stirred
Cocktails for Your Everyday Dramas
Caroline Bicks, Michelle Ephraim
In Shakespeare, Not Stirred, two professors mix equal parts booze and Bard to help you through your everyday dramas. It’s 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 d’oeuvre recipe connects Shakespeare’s characters to life’s daily predicaments:
• Drown your sorrows after a workplace betrayal with Othello’s Green-Eyed Monster
• Distract yourself from domestic drama with Kate’s Shrew-driver or Cleopatra’s Flings in a Blanket
• Recapture your youth with Puck’s Magic ’Shrooms
• Mark a romantic occasion with Beatrice and Benedick’s 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.
