The Drunken Botanist is a cocktail book that takes things one step further, looking into not only the recipes for the liquid component of each drink but also its root substances.
Hitting the midpoint between mixology and botany, The Drunken Botanist breaks down the details of over 150 plants, flowers, trees, fruits, and fungi to explain exactly how they’ve all been turned into alcohol (or other substances) over the years. If ever you’ve picked up a plant or leaf and wondered “what would happen if I consumed this?” then The Drunken Botanist is for you.
Along with 50 drinks recipes, you’ll get growing tips, funny anecdotes and gorgeous, vintage style pages. It’s as much a joy to read as it is to admire.
