Shaken Not Stirred® celebrates the Martini—the quintessential cocktail, the crowning jewel of civilized decadence. Historians and mixologists Anistatia Miller and Jared Brown revise their lists of classic Martini recipes and update their roster of modern Martinis— from the Espresso Martini to the Fresh Fruit Martini, from Cosmos to MarTEAnis—to suit current taste.
