The Drunken Botanist: the Plants that Create the World’s Great Drinks. --- by Amy Stewart. The title says it all: this book is about the plants that produce the alcoholic beverages that we drink and some that we don’t even know about. The reading is easy, the style is clear. No dense, difficult to understand prose here. All the major players are covered: the grape and the hop; the rye and the wheat; sorghum and rice; and so are the end products: ale and lager; wine and cider; gin and bourbon. And more. Thoughtfully, Stewart included a few recipes: there’s Kir and Lavender Martini; Black Gold and Ciao Bella; the Aviation and Mint Julep. You can zoom through this little tome real fast, presumably even faster and more enjoyably with some liquid refreshment at hand. Cheers!
