Praise For Are You Afraid of the Dark Rum?: and Other Cocktails for '90s Kids

“Now that ‘90s kids are all of the age to appreciate a good cocktail, what better way to celebrate the start of summer than by raising a glass to nostalgia?” (Parade)

"Nostalgia manifests in untold ways when we order at the bar or stock our liquor cabinets at home. There's the "I drink it because it's my father's drink" or, of course, "I won't ever touch it because it was the first thing I got drunk on." So many more sentiments hinge upon the past. Sam Slaughter, food and drink editor at The Manual, has tapped into an altogether new—and refreshing—angle.” (Cool Hunting)
