Canada’s first name in bartending is back, this time with the definitive guide to the wildly popular martini. In the same handy format as his bestselling Mulligan’s Bar Guide—now with over 200,000 copies sold in Canada—the author showcases over 1,000 martini recipes, including more than a few Canadian mixes, such as the Tim-Tini (inspired by an iconic coffee chain and served with a cream-filled Timbit on the side) and the Poutini (to be sipped alongside an order of Poutine). The guide is also loaded with fun and funky history, lore, trivia and martini musings from the famous and the infamous. And Mulligan includes helpful tips, whether for drinking responsibly or avoiding a hangover; he even offers calorie counts and flavour guides on favourite liqueurs. The result is an expert mix for the perfect hostess gift, stocking stuffer or indispensable martini party guide.
