Boat Drinks Book : A Different Tipple in Every Port (Paperback) (Fiona Sims)
about this item
A boozy book for boaters, The Boat Drinks Book serves up an expert look at the drinking culture in key sailing spots around the world, cherry-picking the highlights. The book is split into five regions: Atlantic, Mediterranean, Baltic, Pacific, and Caribbean. Author Fiona Sims is on a mission to encourage us to explore each region through its food and drink, getting to the heart of each place by seeking out specialist merchants and hanging out in legendary bars. In doing so she uncovers distilleries, breweries and wineries all within a short taxi ride of the harbor and shows us how to make the most of traditional markets.
As well as giving us the insider knowledge on fabulous locations worldwide, The Boat Drinks Book gets in on the making too. Cocktail and drink recipes inspire us to whip up something delicious--using local liqueurs, wines, spirits and produce--to sip on deck at the end of a long day's cruising or exploring. There's even a scattering of recipes for ultimate boat nibbles, inspired by each region, from easy tapenade to tapas.
So whether you're a seasoned sailor or an armchair aperitif enthusiast, grab a copy of The Boat Drinks Book and let expert food and wine writer Fiona Sims quench your thirst. Your mission: to discover and enjoy.
