Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


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 problem—some 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.
