Book Review
The Mixology of Astrology
Cosmic Cocktail Recipes for Every Sign

by Aliza Kelly Faragher
Publisher- Adams Media

The
first ten pages of the book are about astrology and mixologist terms,
in defining types of glassware used in serving refreshments.

From
there Ms. Faragher breaks each chapter down into the astrology signs.
Each sign has a page dedicated to explaining some of the
characteristics of each symbol. Then each sign is paired with 16
different drink recipes. Each recipe gives a bit of an explanation
why each goes with that sign, the recipe, serving size, and
directions on mixing ins for serving suggestions (kind of glass and
garnish) included.

There
are 192 (yes that number is correct) recipes, 16 different rings for
12 different zodiac signs. Not a single recipe is repeated.

So,
to see how good this book was I invited some friends over. I
assigned different things for them to bring based on their zodiac
sign. Being a Pisces, I gathered Raspberry vodka and some berries
for “Love Potion #Nine.” My husband, the Scorpio went for hard
cider and lager for a drink called “Snake Bite” (said to be so
potent it is outlawed in the United Kingdom.) A Libra we know brought
Gin and Champagne for “French 75”, her husband a Gemini brought
Absinthe, Gin, and Grenadine for a “Monkey Gland.”

Now,
I decided I needed to do this Mixology of Astrology in two different
ways. This first time was the small gathering at my place. So, next
I decided to go with my husband to an “Open MIC Night” at a local
bar where we knew some of our friends hung out, they are regulars
there.

I
asked some of them what their sign was and let them look at a list of
drink names for their astrological sign. This experiment ended up
becoming a lot of fun; people were enjoying changing their pace from
their usual drink.

For
the most part, the drinks that Ms. Faragher listed in each sign, was
pretty much spot on for the person with that astrological sign. Most
of the people that agreed to my experiment said they had never
thought about trying a mixed drink different than what they always
drink. Only three people that I asked to try this stated, they would
stick to their beers.

This
book would be great for small get-togethers, or at a
Bachelorette\Bachelor party. While the cover of this book is pink
and looks a bit feminine, it has some drinks that our fellas would
like.
