Gift Guide 2013: The Drunken Botanist: The plants that create the world’s great drinks by Amy Stewart

November 10th, 2013

The drunken botanist : the plants that create the world’s great drinks

I love gardening and I love imbibing, so what could be better than a book on both?! Learn about all the botanicals that go into making your favorite beers, liquors and cocktails. A Wonderful Read!

From Amazon.com…

“Sake began with a grain of rice. Scotch emerged from barley, tequila from agave, rum from sugarcane, bourbon from corn. Thirsty yet? In The Drunken Botanist, Amy Stewart explores the dizzying array of herbs, flowers, trees, fruits, and fungi that humans have, through ingenuity, inspiration, and sheer desperation, contrived to transform into alcohol over the centuries. Of all the extraordinary and obscure plants that have been fermented and distilled, a few are dangerous, some are downright bizarre, and one is as ancient as dinosaurs—but each represents a unique cultural contribution to our global drinking traditions and our history. This fascinating concoction of biology, chemistry, history, etymology, and mixology—with more than fifty drink recipes and growing tips for gardeners—will make you the most popular guest at any cocktail party.”
