The Drunken Botanist The Plants that Create the World's Great Drinks review Æ 103 review Þ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ó Amy Stewart read & download The Drunken Botanist The Plants that Create the World's Great Drinks Red because girls poisoned by ergot had seizures that made townspeople think they d been bewitched Then there's the tale of the thirty year court battle that took place over the trademarking of Angostura bitters which may or may not actually contain bark from the Angostura treeWith a delightful two color vintage style interior over fifty drink recipes growing tips for gardeners and advice that carries Stewart's trademark wit this is the perfect gift for gardeners and cocktail aficionados alik. BrilliantI loved this book While the format is something like an encyclopedia I read it cover to cover and was sad when i reached the end the entries were that informative and well written that it was engaging than some novels I ve read recentlyI knew some of the background info but a lot was new to me And fascinating As a species we are clearly keen on fermenting anything that might be fermentableThe suggestions of ways to explore like with teuilas and liueurs were really interesting and our bar storage is going to be increasing The drink recipes included worked really well based on those I triedNow I got this as an ARC from LibraryThing so the indices weren t functional and the printing was gray scale rather than the 2 color promised in the real version Based on this though I ve ordered the real version because I think it ll be worth it I ve also ordered a couple of the author s other booksIt really is that goodIf you are interested in the history of booze or in cocktails or spirits in general I HIGHLY recommend this book It is not only really informative it s a great read
