Drink is a rip-roaring, entertaining journey through the wonderful world of drink how to choose it (tough) and how to use it (not so tough). The text is an irresistible primer to alcohol, using straight-talking language to guide readers through the many styles of wines, beers, and spirits. The book explores every popular drink from Bud Lite to German lagers, from inexpensive spirits to aged Cognac, from White Zinfandel to the best Cabernet Sauvignons explaining what styles are available, where they are produced, and what they taste like. Unique flavor trees guide readers between similar tasting red wines, white wines, sparkling wines, sweet and fortified wines, lagers, beers and spirits. And wine style charts show at-a-glance where the key styles of wine are produced, what grapes they include, and whether they offer value for money. There are cocktail recipes for those who like to mix it, food pairing suggestions for those who like to match it, and party ideas for those who just want to make the most of it. Whether yearning to learn about drink or just looking for at-a-glance facts to help cut through the mire of the supermarket shelves, Drink will prove an invaluable guide.Actually, dona#39;t chill the bottle as hard as you would do for the event itself, as it might dumb down many of the winea#39;s important ...
