About the book:

From baby tees to slip dresses, from Bel-Air to And Just Like That, from Madonna to The Notorious B.I.G, the ‘90s are back, baby! Believe it or not, Gen Z is old enough to drink—and millennials are old enough to long for their past… is there any better way to celebrate than to infuse some pop culture nostalgia into our cocktails? Saved by the Bellini (April 25, 2023) by celebrated mixologist John deBary, includes 65+ recipes, all accompanied by spunky, funky pop-art illustrations that tip to everyone’s favorite memories of the best decade ever, like the ubiquitous “Got Milk?” ads, Seinfeld's witty sarcasm that took the world by storm, and Christina Aguilera's epic #1 hit, Genie in a Bottle.
