To celebrate the last two hours of the Pistols of the Warlords launch, I have Shanghai’d my father into coming down to join me in a 2-hour livestream tonight! From 7pm to 9pm Pacific (10pm to midnight Eastern) we will be snacking on good Chinese food, talking about guns, and trying out some of the cocktails from the book.

If you have already backed the Kickstarter, you can check the backer-only update there to download the complete cocktail sheets. The cocktails are taken from a 1930s Shanghai nightclub, four originals and four modern reimagining. If you haven’t backed the Kickstarter, there are a couple of the recipes below that Dad and I will be trying out…

You may recall that my Dad wrote a small book on Arisakas many years ago, which is still a great introduction to collecting that field:
