Some ten thousand years ago, our ancestors all over the globe discovered the cheering, soothing, and socializing pleasures of alcohol. They stopped wandering in isolated groups and settled down in communities to raise crops of fruits and grains, ferment them, and throw parties. Civilization was born. Barbara Holland shows us what's been happening since, from London's "Gin Lane" to the jungles of Africa to the chocolate martinis of Manhattan. Highlights include recipes both delicious and disgusting, hangover cures, and instructions for how to make your own backyard distillery. Charming and engaging, this is a delicious celebration of pleasures fermented and distilled, by one of America's notable wits.
