Pt. I. We explore the twin alchemical processes of fermentation and distillation, from which wine, beer, and spirits issue forth -- Pt. II. We then suffuse our creations with a wondrous assortment of nature's bounty -- Pt. III. At last we venture into the garden, where we encounter a seasonal array of botanical mixers and garnishes to be introduced to the cocktail in its final stage of preparation.
Amy Stewart explores the dizzying array of herbs, flowers, trees, fruits, and fungi that humans have, through ingenuity, inspiration, and sheer desperation, contrived to transform into alcohol over the centuries.
