Drink Like a Geek Reviews


"It has been a great year for pop-up bars that pay homage to science fiction with themed menus and crazy decor, 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
