I purchased the book for my wife, as she is the one who makes the various liquors, drinks, etc. in our home. We read the book together and each of us found several selections we wanted to try. I was especially happy with the Mead recipe which seemed to be very similar to the one my landlord made when I was living in England years and years ago. If its close, it will be well worth the price.

Format: Kindle Edition
A different, quirky book that could with a bit of effort give you some totally new taste sensations.

Essentially this is a book about making your own drinks - whether alcoholic or non-alcoholic, from ingredients that you might find in your kitchen, your garden or whilst on a walk in the countryside. Just browsing through this book shows drinks being made from ingredients you had not considered could be the basis of a libation. Making a grain wine from maize or corn, a beer from nettles or a cordial from rhubarb, this book will keep you occupied and intrigued for many hours, even if you never intend to make something. Of course, it is better if you DO make something...

The author gives a great overview and introduction to the techniques and methodologies involved in home drink production before it is on to the 140+ recipes on offer. The recipes themselves are concisely written but contain sufficient information to get to the point. There are not so many illustrations in this book which is a bit of a shame as they could help draw you in to try things you hadn't considered could be "tasty" (after all, we "drink" and "eat" with our eyes!). The content however does come to the fore and delivers this with aplomb.

It is pleasing to see that the author has resisted the temptation to evangelise and nag. Any positive comments about the benefits of making your own drinks are almost embarrassingly hidden away, as if it was something to be shameful about. One senses the author's enthusiasm and focus on the subject. This is a great little book. All you need to do is find one drink, possibly something that takes you by surprise, to have a lifelong favourite. The odds of finding more than one favourite with this book is very high though. Definitely a title to consider adding to your bookshelf.

Great book! Simple enough to tackle the fear of beginning a new hobby and one where nobody I know can offer direction. I also love that it offers both European and US measuring units and includes such a wide (and in some cases delightfully strange) list of recipes.
