Slow Drinks teaches home cooks, industry pros, homebrewers, and foragers how to transform botanical ingredients – whether foraged or purchased from the store – into incredibly unique beverages and cocktails.
Organised by season, Slow Drinks demonstrates how to make drinks that tell a story of botany, history, culture, and terroir, while honouring beverage traditions both old and new. Each season will highlight eight new ingredients with recipes that build on a basics chapter and teach readers how to interchangeably use master recipes to make their own meads, country wines, beers, sodas, tinctures, shrubs, and more.
Beautifully photographed by the author’s wife, Katie Childs, and illustrated by Molly Reader, Slow Drinks will be the definitive botanist’s guide to mixology that can live in your basket on a foraging trip, or on the coffee table as a conversation piece.
This book is for bartenders, do-it-yourselfers, foodies, homesteaders, homebrewers, food activists, and anyone looking to dive into the world of botanical drink making.
