The Power of Positive Drinking

How to drink without the downsides. Twelve simple lessons on how to drink well and drink healthy. Enjoy alcohol without the hangovers or weight-gain with THE POWER OF POSITIVE DRINKING.

‘It's always too early to quit.’
Norman Vincent Peale, author, The Power of Positive Thinking

‘Frankly I couldn’t agree more, Norman. I’ve been barking for a large one since noon.’
Cleo Rocos, author, The Power of Positive Drinking

THE POWER OF POSITIVE DRINKING isn’t a guide on how to get drunk. It is a guide to how to drink well and thoroughly enjoy yourself.

Drinking has a bad reputation in some quarters. But that’s largely because we don’t drink properly, as we have not yet been initiated in the art of drinking well. Most of us know plenty about healthy eating, but next to nothing about healthy drinking.

This is Cleo Rocos’ master class on how to imbibe successfully, on how to reach that delicious level of intoxication where you and your fellow drinkers blossom into the favourite version of yourselves and stay there. From Rocos we learn how to ensure that every drinking occasion snowballs into a glorious and triumphant event.

Inside these pages lie the secrets of alcohol. The finest hints and tips on stylish drinking gleaned from seasoned and successful drinkers around the globe; failsafe recipes for some of the world’s greatest snifters - martini recipes, margarita recipes, mojitos and cosmopolitans - along with a few of Cleo’s own specialities, guaranteed to avoid that awful hangover.

Cleo’s 12 lessons on spirits and other alcoholic tipples includes: Vloddy Marvellous Things about Vodka; No Hangover Cocktails; Skinny Low-Calorie Cocktails; Champagne; Wine; How to Win with Gin; Tuck into Tequila; Avoid Getting Frisky on Whisky; Rum; What to Absolutely Avoid; Essential Hangover Tips; Prehab:The Rehab-Prevention Rules.

Enjoy this book responsibly.

About the Author

Cleo Rocos

Cleo Rocos lives in London with her parrot, Max. She has enjoyed a glass or two and had a headstand contest with Jack Nicholson, gone brothel busting with Alan Carr, smuggled Princess Diana into drag bars and high-kicked to show tunes with Gore Vidal. ‘It’s all been glorious fun, but none of these gleeful events would have taken place if we hadn’t got a drop of the proper stuff inside us.'
