A Spirited Look at Drinks in Pop Culture
"...celebrates drinking lore across a wide range of comic book and video game universes..." ─WineMag.com
#1 New Release in Alcoholic Drinks & Beer
Sci-fi and fantasy worlds are full of characters who know that sometimes magic happens at the bar. In addition to being a mixed drinks and alcoholic drinks book, Drink Like a Geek is a look at iconic drinks and the roles they play in our pop culture─our favorite movies, shows, books, and comics. It’s also a toast to the geeks, nerds, and gamers who keep this pop culture alive.
Flights of fantasy. Drink Like a Geek is a fan encyclopedia and cocktail book. Because we strongly encourage audience participation, dozens of recipes for otherworldly cocktails, brews, and booze are included.
A great 21st birthday idea. If you’re looking for nerd gifts, Drink Like a Geek raises the bar. Homebrewers and mixology geeks who are fans of superheroes, wizards, or intergalactic adventure will also enjoy this book’s celebration of real-world bar-arcades, geeky Tiki culture, and the surprising connections between space and modern booze.
In Drink Like a Geek, you’ll find entertainment and drinks for fans who love:
Cosplay and conventions
You'll love this book if you enjoy pun-filled cocktail recipe books and cookbooks like Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist; Gone with the Gin: Cocktails with a Hollywood Twist; The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book: Real Recipes for Joke Burgers; Heroes’ Feast (Dungeons & Dragons); The Geeky Bartender Drinks; or The Geeky Chef Drinks.
"It has been a great year for pop-up bars that pay homage to science fiction with themed menus and crazy décor, and this book feels like a visit to one of those bars. It dives deep into “Star Wars” prequels, “Doctor Who” (the blue-hued Gin & Tardis) and superhero culture (a Midori-spiked Hulk Smash), so a very specific audience will love this book." -Liquor.com
“Listen, I like James Bond. And I like Star Wars. But I love drinking. And when this book made it clear that I could fully combine a series of films with a series of drinks, I ascended straight to heaven. Not only is Cioletti’s book informative and inventive, but wildly entertaining as well. Of course, I’m drunk on an Ewok ‘Bright Tree Swizzle,’ but there you go.” ―Matt Gourley, actor, comedian, & co-host of the James Bonding and Superego podcasts
“Jeff is a geek, but he's no snob. Like a friend who lends favorite comic books or tips you off to a great IPA, this book opens up a new worlds and shares your passion for their minute details. Drink Like a Geek revels in nerd culture while remembering that the best parts of being in the club are the people―and drinks―there with you.” ―Kate Bernot, managing editor, The Takeout (TheTakeout.com)
“A geek's geek and a drinker's drinker, Jeff Cioletti authoritatively puts a whole spectrum of geek-loved media together with peppy, name-checked cocktails. Wonderfully unique! Get Boilermakers with good old Greedo, and see who shoots first. Drink Romulan Ale with Doc McCoy, Tardis-blue gin with The Doctor, and a corrected Vesper with Bond; James Bond. Then argue about them; that's what Geeks do.” ―Lew Bryson, author of Tasting Whiskey and Whiskey Master Class; senior drinks writer at The Daily Beast
“You know that line about booze and knowledge? I'm convinced Tyrion Lannister stole it from Jeff Cioletti. The author of this book has an unabashed love and appreciation for inventive drinks and all forms of geekery. The two have more in common than you might think, and, as both step in from the fringes, Cioletti is here to get you deeper into your favorite genre and glass.” ―John Holl, author of Drink Beer, Think Beer: Getting to the Bottom of Every Pint and co-host of Steal This Beer, a podcast
“Drink Like a Geek is a blast! To all the besotted, sci-fi loving, gaming, twenty-s
