About this item

What do you drink, and why do you drink it? Though virtually everyone can answer the first question, Jason Wilson's BOOZEHOUND--a fascinating exploration of spirits, from production to ingestion-may surprise you with some intriguing thoughts about the second. Wilson considers everything from the complexity of flavors (herbs, nuts, flowers), to the appearances of alcohol in literature, to the impact of personal experience, especially the adolescent variety. With drink recipes whose names alone (Widow's Kiss, Restraining Order, Paloma, Aviation) will pique your curiosity. In short, Wilson makes alcohol both interesting and fun, even before you drink any of it.
