Less Drunk.You deserve a great cocktail—and you dont have to over-indulge to get it! Shims—serious, low-alcohol cocktails—are where everyone can come together, whether it’s for the one drink of the evening or when this is but the first of many.This book is your invitation to a world of delicious, sophisticated drinks which provide all their pleasures without walloping you over the head with booze.

Celebrate two centuries of the cocktail with 53 recipes for every taste, from the sunny cheerfulness of a Bens Good Humor to slow sippers like the Bitter Giuseppe. Cheers!Lavishly illustrated with 79 vibrant photos by Kelly Puleio.Why have one delightful cocktail when you can have two or three?

This book, as elegant as it is useful, adds a golden arrow to the serious drink-mixers quiver. Armed with it, I look forward to shimming everyone in sight. - David Wondrich, Esquire magazine columnist and author of Imbibe! and Punch (advance praise)Every cocktail should be delicious, but not every drink needs to deliver a wallop.

With The Art of the Shim, Dinah Sanders is performing a public service: these well-considered bibulous gems all weigh in on the featherweight end of the alcohol spectrum, so a drinker can sample through a few without fear of a knockout punch. Such delicious and dialed-in drinks should be a part of every bartender’s repertoire, and on the evening itinerary of every cocktail enthusiast’s night on the town.

- Paul Clarke, contributing editor, Imbibe magazine (advance praise)Somewhere between a mocktail and a cocktail lies the shim, as defined by Dinah Sanders. These less-boozy drinks provide enough oomph to have a good time but enough level-headed alcohol consumption to help the fun last all night. Insightful and entertaining, The Art of the Shim is an informative addition to anyone’s cocktail book collection.

- Natalie Bovis, The Liquid Muse, author of Preggatinis, The Bubbly Bride, and Edible Cocktails (advance praise)Absolutely fantastic! - Erik Lorincz, head bartender, American Bar, Savoy Hotel, London (advance praise)The Art of the Shim is cheeky without being legally culpable for cheek.

Dinah Sanders plays it all above board. The promise is low alcohol cocktails and she delivers without resorting to any of the imminently-available low-cal chemistry that tends to turn such book premises into muck. She uses thoroughly classic ingredients of which any cocktailian barkeep would approve. With them, she conjures really, really lovely quaffs that satisfy while maintaining their signature virtue.

I mean, how cheeky is that? To top it off, she calls her book Shim, defines it, it all holds together and you’re left with a sense that its right...that everything is just right and was always thus. Such unprovable cheek is terribly annoying, and awfully good.

- Ted Haigh, author of Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails and curator of The Museum of the American Cocktail (advance praise)
