Sake began with a grain of rice. Scotch emerged from barley, tequila from agave, rum from sugarcane, bourbon from corn. 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.

Before , American bar-tenders tended to understand various types of drinks rather than memorize their recipes. Today, bar-tenders tend to memorize recipes for drinks. This is not mixology. Once a bar-tender of yore understood how to make a delicious Brandy Cocktail, their Whiskey Cocktail, Rum Cocktail and Gin Cocktail would also be good. The same went for punches, sours, daisies, roses, toddies, slings, cobblers, cups, fixes, juleps, flips, etc. The rediscovery of the power of traditional, American mixology is due.
Love the drinks and humor. Only wish that it had more drinks in it. Overall a great find and highly recommended to those that want to know more about general drinks and spirits. Cute book full of good recipes. Also makes for interesting reading. I'm giving it to my husband for Christmas. This is a gift for valentines day My husband is a lousy bartender, so decided to help him out. Nice little Bar book!
Husband likes it very much. Ordered it to have near our new bar.

The Little Black Book of Cocktails: The Essential Guide to New & Old Classics by Virginia Reynolds
There is an alcohol index, but not an additional "stuff" index, so you can get a list of drinks you can make with gin, but there is no list of drinks that contain basil or mint, for example. May 13, Debbie Gilpin rated it it was amazing. Will come in very handy when I finally get round to starting mixology - also very useful for a recent University Challenge picture round!
