The Last Minute Cocktail

The Mila, inspired by Sam’s mysterious partner in his adventures, this cocktail is a delicious blend of smoky, sweet and spicy.
The Sam Capra Cooler

One of the elements of the Sam Capra novels is that Sam’s adventures take him around the world. So here you’ll see interesting tidbits of action from around the globe, or stories/news relating to the kind of world Sam inhabits.
Sam has a way of getting out of all sorts of predicaments, thanks to his CIA training. His hobby of parkour (also known as freerunning or l’art du displacement) means he doesn’t run from danger, but rather when he runs, it’s dangerous.
Check out this video, a showreel from Parkour Generations, one of the world’s premier parkour studios. This shows work their parkour team has done for commercials, film, school programs to help kids stay fit, and more. One of Britain’s top parkour runners and one of Parkour Generations’ principals, Dan Edwardes, kindly helped Jeff with his parkour research in London. Sam Capra would tell you this kind of activity takes a lot of training and strength. So don’t go jumping out of your chair and try this at home.
