When life hands you nothing but lemons, just slice, squeeze into a pitcher, add gin or vodka, stir and serve.

Life's highs and lows for working adults provide a hilarious subtext to the creative cocktails that take center stage in Dee Brun's Libations of Life .

Chapters such as " It's Not Me, It's You," " The Dating/Relationship Pool... and Its Lack of Lifeguards," " Trim the Back Fat" and " Trolling Cocktails" deliver a hefty portion of humor along with great cocktail ideas.

Whether it`s advice on how to chill during a breakup or, more importantly, how to whip up a He Called Me by His Ex's Name on the Rocks (with a splash of uncomfortable silence) , this book has all the answers (in this case, the recipe for the deliciously fresh Plenty of Fish in the Sea Sling) .

With great cocktail recipes to enjoy no matter what the current status of the relationship, Libations of Life will have its readers shaking, mixing or stirring like a pro. Among the other cocktails featured: The I Need More Space Daiquiri The Please Don't Stalk Me Caesar, with a Slice of Restraining Order The I`m Going to Leave Him Martini, with a Slice of Dignity The I`m Emotionally Unavailable Manhattan The Maybe Next Time Mojito, with a Wedge of Hope The He Must Have Lost My Number on the Rocks.
