Go Ahead, Make My Drink review

Go Ahead, Make My Drink
60 Recipes Inspired By the Best of Film and Television
Hardcover
Written by Anthony Marinese
Illustrated by Horacio Cassinelli
Publisher: Insight Editions
Publication Date: October 18, 2016
Cover Price: $19.99

I’m constantly scouring the Internet for movie- and TV-themed drink inspirations, which is why Go Ahead, Make My Drink: 60 Recipes Inspired By the Best of Film and Television by Anthony Marinese was a book I was 100 percent interested in checking out.

This 144-page full-color hardcover recipe book from Insight Editions was even cooler than I expected, mainly because a lot of the properties they selected are ones I’m into — Star Trek, Star Wars and the like — but it’s also illustrated! Each drink has its recipe with instructions, accompanied by explanatory text on its inspiration, a photograph of the prepared item, and an adorable full-color illustration by Horacio Cassinelli either of the drink alone or of the beverage with something from the film/TV show, such as a character or prop.

So, next time you’re in the mood to watch the show, you can make yourself a themed cocktail to enjoy with it, thanks to the folks at A Beautiful Mess, who’ve created the Breaking Bad Blue Crystal Cocktail complete with Heisenberg’s signature “blue meth.”
