The cocktail section is great as well, all three cocktails I have tried have been wonderful and balanced, compared to the few I have tried from online recipes. The books information about the processes and varieties of mezcal is invaluable for a learning consumer of the drink. The brands available list is a very helpful tool for helping you to find the next bottle you might purchase!
McEvoy deftly blends information about all aspects of the Mexican liquor from its history and production to its current availability and the future effects of its rising popularity. Most importantly he imparts all this detail in a spirit of fun and adventure conveyed with lively turns of phrase, my favorite being, “as approachable as your mother on Thanksgiving”.
Not only does McEvoy introduce the reader to a captivating spirit he imbues the book with his own infectious enthusiasm. The result is you feel like you can become an expert yourself. The author hopes that by imparting his wisdom “your palate will sharpen. And if it doesn’t, just make it up—your friends will never know.”
This book is at once a serious endeavor to chronicle an under-known story and at the same time a delicious, fun read in of itself.
