Let me start this review with this. I don’t drink. If it’s harder than Mountain Dew, it’s not for me. So why am I reviewing this book? I loved and reviewed, THE GEEKY CHEF COOKBOOK. Being a sci-fi geek from far back, I couldn’t not check out, THE GEEKY BARDTENDER DRINKS. And just like the cookbook, this was so much fun!

Author Cassandra Reeder knows her sci-fi, fantasy, and other fun genres. Between the TV shows, movies, books, and games the author mentions is chapters like Special Effects, Magical Elixirs, Sci-Fi Spirits, and Literary Libations, just to name a few, she covers a drink for every self-professed geek that likes to imbibe in cocktails and ale. She even has Nonalcoholic drinks for teetotalers like me!

To wet your geeky whistle, you’ll find drinks such as, The Elder Scrolls: White-Gold Tower, World of Warcraft: Moonglow, The Legend of Zelda: Chateau Romani, The Lord of the Rings: Miruvor, Battlestar Galactica: Ambrosia, Star Wars: Tatooine Sunset, Doctor Who: Sonic Screwdriver, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Black Frost Beer, Harry Potter: Butterbeer, Discworld: Scumble and Fluff, 1984: Victory Gin, Fallout: Dirty Wastelander, Archer: Peppermint Patty, The Simpsons: Flanders’ Planter Punch, Futurama: Slurm, Hook: Poe-Poe, and many, many more!

I had so much fun with THE GEEKY BARDTENDER DRINKS. Several of my favorite sci-fi showed are represented which made me smile. And with recipes for simple syrups, and instructions on things like rimming a glass, I can make even my soda and tea not only taste great, but look amazing. Think about what those of you who drink can do. The stellar full color photos for just about every drink mentioned, will give you an idea of how amazing they will look!

THE GEEKY BARTENDER DRINKS, for fans and non-fans of the genres mentioned, will love this book and make you a shooting star in your universe.
