About the Author

Sam Slaughter is a Spirits Editor for the men's lifestyle magazine The Manual. He loves playing with puppies and a good glass of bourbon.


"Nostalgia manifests in untold ways when we order at the bar or stock our liquor cabinets at home. There's the "I drink it because it's my father's drink" or, of course, "I won't ever touch it because it was the first thing I got drunk on." So many more sentiments hinge upon the past. Sam Slaughter, food and drink editor at The Manual, has tapped into an altogether new--and refreshing--angle." (Cool Hunting)
"Now that '90s kids are all of the age to appreciate a good cocktail, what better way to celebrate the start of summer than by raising a glass to nostalgia?" (Parade)
"Sam Slaughter's 90s-themed cocktail book Are You Afraid of the Dark Rum? is full of delicious drinks, nostalgia, and just the right amount of corny humor." (Foreword Reviews)
"A cocktail book based on '90s pop culture, Slaughter's oeuvre is an homage to the shows, songs, games, and more that he grew up with." (Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Manual Podcast)
"An entertaining page-turner with enough puns to make any dad proud, it's easy to get lost in the memories and forget you're supposed to be doing something--like making cocktails --with Are You Afraid of the Dark Rum?" (Greenville Journal)
"[Sam Slaughter] has cleverly used wit and cultural lore to offer up adult versions of favorite '90s childhood drinks plus some original craft cocktails inspired by the Nirvana decade." (Monsters & Critics)
"It's rare to find a cocktail recipe that doesn't feel either bland or hoity-toity. This book is fun! And there are more '90s puns here than flannels at the first Lollapalooza!" (Books, Bites, & A Bit of My Life)
