Buchbeschreibung zu „Drink“


• A piece of toast was dropped into wine in ancient Rome to toast someone for good health?

• The word ‘bridal’ originated from ‘bride ale’, a special alcohol brewed for a marriage feast?

• Rum was so important in New England that a contract wasn’t considered sealed until a glass had been drunk?

'Drink' contains everything you have ever wanted to know about alcohol, from how to make absinthe to the cultural history of zythos (beer), and is packed with fascinating and curious facts about life’s ‘second greatest pleasure’ (according to essayist Samuel Johnson).

Bottoms up!
