“I wrote this book for the Redheads,” says Hagar, in a press release. “I have been working and studying the art of making and drinking cocktails for decades now and have finally pulled together all of my favorites, my knowledge on how to do it, and what you need to throw the best parties with the best cocktails. I guarantee this is the only cocktail book you will ever need.”

The book is co-authored by James Beard Award-winning cookbook author James O. Fraioli, and includes a forward by celebrity chef Guy Fieri. A longtime friend and business partner of Hagar, Fieri writes, “One of the greatest things about Sammy is how he loves to share all of these experiences with his friends, family, and fans, and this book is a perfect example of that.”

Many of the book’s recipes are based around Hagar and Fieri’s tequila brand, Santo, as well as Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum with Rick Springfield. For the most authentic Red Rocker-inspired cocktails, be sure to pick up a bottle (or two) of Santo when you order Sammy Hagar’s Cocktail Hits.

Hagar has already received praise for his recipes, with big-name endorsements from the likes of chefs Emeril Lagasse and Michael Mina, Patrón Spirits founder John Paul Dejoria, and Campari Group Chairman Luca Garavoglia. “I’ve spent many nights with Sambo in Cabo, Vegas, his house, my house. . . .The guy knows how to shake it up in more ways than one!” writes country singer Toby Keith, in a review.

Though he’s has been spending time behind the bar, Hagar still makes time for the stage too: this summer, the rocker is going on tour with his band The Circle, which counts Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham, and guitarist Vic Johnson as members. The so-called Crazy Times tour kicks off June 10th — head here to purchase tickets.
