The Drunken Botanist

The Drunken Botanist

As humans, we’ve gone to great lengths to get our drink on. Seriously, it’s easy for most of us great grab a couple GnTs and make the night spin, but at some point someone had to actually come up with the idea of creating gin in the first place. The Drunken Botanist explores the roots of your favorite spirits. From the humblest beginnings (corn, sugarcane, etc) came glorious, glorious booze. This book explains the biology, chemistry, history, and mixology behind your liquor. From obscure plants to dangerous ones, it provides you with a bit of knowledge on the ingenuity of alcohol. It’s also packed with fifty drink recipes and tips from gardeners so you can serve up some ridiculousness at your next party.
