Cocktail Recipes from Ardent Spirits

Gary and Mardee Regan are self-confessed "spirits and cocktail freaks" who take their liquor very seriously. And after checking out their wealth of magazine articles and books to their names, as well as their Ardent Spirits website, I'd have to agree with them. After browsing the recipes on their site, many of which are reader-submitted, I found that many of them included too many ingredients for my personal taste and level of laziness, but they all looked tasty and worth a try.
