Description

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, March 2013: Peppered with fascinating facts and well-chosen anecdotes, Amy Stewart’s
brisk tour of the origin of spirits acquaints the curious cocktail fan with every conceivable ingredient. Starting with
the classics (from agave to wheat), she touches on obscure sources--including a tree that dates to the dinosaur
age--before delving into the herbs, spices, flowers, trees, fruits, and nuts that give the world’s greatest drinks
distinctive flavors. Along the way, you’ll enjoy sidebars on bugs in booze and inspired drink recipes with backstories
that make lively cocktail party conversation. Like Wicked Plants, this delightfully informative, handsome volume isn’t
intended as a complete reference or DIY guide, but it will demystify and heighten your appreciation of every
intoxicating plant you imbibe. --Mari Malcolm
