SOLD! Imbibing for Introverts (by Jeff Cioletti)
As we slowly relearn human interaction, I'm pleased to announce the sale of a book that will help introverts find quiet, low-key watering holes around the world.
Imbibing for Introverts combines the social survival tactics taught in guides like The Introvert’s Way with the appreciation for thoughtful drinking found in travelogues like Chad Parkhill’s Around the World in 80 Cocktails. From Frankie’s Tiki Room in Las Vegas, to New York’s Dead Rabbit cocktail bar, to San Francisco’s Chinatown dive bar Li Po, Imbibing for Introverts helps solo drinkers confidently pull up a seat at every genre and subgenre of drinking establishment.
The book begins in readers’ most comfortable setting—their own homes—before taking them out on the town, to bars across the country and, finally, overseas. There are thirteen chapters divided by bar type, along with an introduction (“Introvert’s Manifesto”) and epilogue (“Quarantine Confessions”). Each chapter of this comical journey features drink recommendations and cocktail recipes that relate to the particular setting—fifty to sixty drink recommendations in total.
