Part drink recipe book, part she-larious drunken memoir, the coffee table book contains Jeza's own classy (The Dietrich) and, uh, not-so-classy (MAI Cock is TAI-ed Back) cocktail recipes along with the favorite drinks and messy memories of some of the world’s most famous drag queens, among them, Sherry Vine, Latrice Royale, Barbie Breakout and Rupaul's Drag Race contestant,Yara Sofia.
Other queens featured include a #1 Billboard artist, reality show winners and contestants, social media sensations, rising pop stars, and a bevy of other bevvy lovers from over a dozen countries on six continents. New York’s own Lady Bunny wrote the book’s hilarious introduction.
