Care for a cocktail? Perhaps the traditional Manhattan, or maybe you're more of a Sex and the City girl with a Cosmo in hand? If you're on the carb-watching kick, try a Moscow Mule, made with vodka and diet ginger ale. There are some little-known drinks here, too, like the Russian Huntress, guaranteed to bring out the wild woman in all who imbibe. And, because we care, we've included some non-alcoholic libations as well.

But what's a cocktail recipe without a party? Shake It Up serves up party ideas for town and country, weekend brunches, bridal showers, sophisticated city evenings, and casual Friday night Evite events. (Note: High-Heeled Manners says it's okay to use email for invites, as long as it's for a Friday night. Besides, remember etiquette rules, like every other kind, are made to be broken once in a while.)

Shake It Up is garnished with bartending tips, party-goers guides, and conversation-starting trivia. For instance, learn how the French get a whole pear inside their brandy bottles and meet the monk who invented, by accident it's said, champagne. And, as a little P.S., Oprah Winfrey credits Julia Roberts with making the best margaritas in the business!

The Editors of Conari Press have produced the bestselling Random Acts of Kindness series, with over 1 million copies sold.
