Product description

Product Description

One of the world's most popular cocktails originated from flea repellent and malaria medication. This short but thoroughly-researched history of the Gin & Tonic begins in 1630 in Peru and ends in today's America, with detours along the way to include the invention of artificial carbonation, the discovery of the color mauve, the launching of cats from airplanes, the history of ice cubes, the problem with summer papal conclaves, the work history of Ginger Rogers' great-great-great grandfather, and much more.

There are no recipes and no tasting notes, just a good time tale of one of the world's most popular and delicious cocktails in 10,000 high-quality words and 35 low-quality illustrations.

Tonic Water AKA G&T WTF is written and illustrated by cocktail journalist Camper English of Alcademics.com. His work has appeared in publications including Saveur, Details, Popular Science, the San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times Magazine, Fine Cooking, Wine & Spirits, and many more. Camper is working on an epic-length book on the same topic, but that won't appear in print for several years. Your purchase helps support Camper's research.

5.0 out of 5 stars Equal parts cocktails, science and humor. 23 April 2017

I am a geek who loves science and medicine, a good cocktail and a refreshing glass of water. Even better if all these things can be shared with a witty friend. This is exactly what Camper delivers in this book. Obscure facts, interesting historical anecdotes and inspiring ideas. The only thing he did not include is the doctor who built bat roosts in downtown San Antonio Texas to rid the city of mosquitos and a malaria epidemic. Otherwise, this little text is packed with info about Gin and Tonic and sweetened with a genial delivery.

A great outline of a book I am looking forward to reading in the future. Now time to make a G&T.
