Some of the period recipes sound repulsive, others sound actually pretty good. Gets a little repetitive in places and could use some pictures I doubt I'll ever make any of these, but it was fun to read. Aug 18, Jenna Lyday rated it really liked it. What I was hoping was to find drink recipes that were made a. So far, it seems to be shaping up to be just that with a dash of humor for spice.
Almost all of the recipes maintain the level of humor established with the almond milk, and while it's not exactly a history, per se, there are a lot of interesting little historical tidbits about daily life sprinkled throughout. And martha Washington was apparently a damn fine mixologist.
Feb 07, Jyllian Martini rated it it was amazing. A recipe book that makes you think and chuckle--yes anything by Alton Brown. A recipe book that might make you gag just a bit milk punches? I appreciate the authenticity of the recipes --being someone who had a few degrees in English Lit, but I also appreciate the modern alternatives.

May 08, Symmonz rated it it was amazing. Most entertaining recipe book of all time I ended up reading this cover to cover just out of sheer entertainment. I actually laughed out loud so many times I lost count. Almost each page has something either humorous or deprecating about the drink. The author freely admits that several of these recipes - while period correct - are disgusting and should be skipped. It's worth getting just to have an amusing evening. Jan 26, Maya rated it it was amazing Shelves: The authors have a tongue in cheek sarcasm that is much appreciated, especially with the curdled milk punches and egg drinks.
A lot of the Victorian versions sound disgusting, plus they are in massive quantities so the addition of modern versions after some of them is greatly appreciated. The idea of reading a cocktail book instead of only using it as a lookup reference might seem odd. Read it anyway - cover to cover.
Jul 13, Kelley rated it it was amazing Shelves: I can honestly say that never has a cookbook had me laughing so hard. I ended up reading some of the recipes to friends friends so I could share the laughter. I think my favorite is The Loyal Legion Punch. May 28, Brianna rated it really liked it.

Aug 29, Damona rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a hilarious book.
I don't drink, but I thought that the recipes in here were great and hilarious. Some of those Victorians, man I recommend this book if you like anything having to do with the Victorian Era or Steampunk. Aug 23, Toni rated it liked it. Interesting ideas, most of them anyway. I'll post when we test some. Feb 05, Kristina Jean Lareau rated it it was amazing Shelves: Such a fun read and so informative.
I downloaded it for the Kindle App on my laptop and it was a great format. I think I will purchase a physical copy.
