Shakespeare, Not Stirred is a cocktail book that brings a Shakespeare-inspired twist to life’s everyday highs and lows. The thirty-four original drinks and twenty-eight hors d’oeuvres recipes each highlight a particular Shakespearean character or theme through which the authors riff on a specific everyday problemsome comic, some tragic, but all of them Shakespearean to the core.
Feeling paranoid about your power-hungry colleagues? Whip up Julius Caesar’s Et Tu, Brut” Champagne Cocktail and you’ll forget about getting stabbed in the back.
Stressed out by your unambitious husband? Our Lady Macbeth’s G-Spot guarantees some happy me time.”
Each drink is matched with hors d’oeuvres, dubbed Savory Matters,” that follow the same formula, such as Falstaff’s Paunch Sliders and Macbeth’s Crushed Nuts.
