Bunny and Coco drink. A lot. In the course of their imbibing, they have published two magazines exploring the culture of the cocktail. Here, compiled for the first times, are six years of their work: secret histories of mixed drinks, pagan origins of drinking customs, and both the best and the worst cocktails ever made -- with recipes!

There is more to drinking alcohol than just pouring some spirits, tipping a cup, and rolling under a table. Intoxicating liquids have been with us as long as there has been civilization, and when you have that many people consuming that many drinks, things are bound to get a bit ... blotto.
Bunny and Coco Ultramod are the founders of two online magazines about the history and the culture of the cocktail: "Daily Lush" and "The Bottle Gang." They have spent the past six years digging into the subject, in museums, libraries, and bars -- lots of bars. Here, for the first time, is their collected writings.
Discover the pagan origins of popular drinking rituals. Learn about some of history's greatest drinkers, and some of the worst. Enjoy the best cocktails ever made -- Bunny and Coco will give you the recipes. And sit back as they tell you about the worst concoctions ever made from fermented liquids. Finally, take a tour with them through the greatest city a drinker could hope to visit, New Orleans, and later slip beneath the bar at New York's 21 Club to see the trap doors and booby traps left from when the club was a speakeasy.
