- Customer Reviews:
"Amy Stewart has a way of making gardening seem exciting, even a little dangerous." --The New York Times"Many boozy books have been published over the years, spilling over with fun facts about absinthe, grog and bathtub gin. What makes Stewart's book different is her infectious enthusiasm for the plants, their uses, their history, and the botanists who roamed the earth finding them. The result is intoxicating but in a fresh, happy, healthy way." --USA Today "The Drunken Botanist is a sipping book, not a quaffing book, best enjoyed in moderation...Part Ripley's Believe It or Not, part compendium on the order of 'Schott's Original Miscellany' and part botanical garden tour, albeit with a curated cocktail party at the end . . . a companionable reference and whimsical recitation of historical-botanical trivia, with a little tart debunking." --The Washington Post "Sipping an evening cocktail while flipping through this fine volume, I discovered that Ms. Stewart knew how to change a run-of-the-mill cocktail into an intriguing one." --The Wall Street Journal "A book that makes familiar drinks seem new again...Through this horticultural lens, a mixed drink becomes a cornucopia of plants." --NPR's Morning Edition
"Fascinating, well researched and instructive -- with appealing recipes too." --Rosie Schaap, New York Times
"Gardening can be an intoxicating hobby, especially if the botany is booze-related." --The Associated Press

I do not know haw Amy Stewart can pack so many unique detail in such a small book.
I saw a page on Tamarind and finally figured out what I have been drinking for years.

The book that evey bartenders should have or new bartenders should get. A lot of knowledges for professionnals.
That’s exactly the kind of book I was looking for. Discovering all your liquors and spirits by the basics.
