Críticas:

"A center of brewing and distilling, colonial Philadelphia was the wettest town in the colonies. With punch and Madeira its cultural midwife, along with some of the finest wine cellars in the nation, we still wonder at the glories of rye whisky for which the city was justly famous. Steven Grasse has indeed brought alive the story of our drinking past in a colorful narrative for anyone who enjoys culinary history with glass in hand." --Dr. William Woys Weaver "food historian and author of Sauerkraut Yankees " "Colonial Spirits reminds us all that if it wasn't for the poisonous water, we wouldn't have booze." --Warren Bobrow "The Cocktail Whisperer and author of Apothecary Cocktails " "Mix up your own tankard of Cock Ale or Rattle Skull and settle in for Steven Grasse's slightly soused tale of America's colonial boozing traditions." --Joe Sixpack "Beer Reporter " "Steven Grasse is the mad genius of historical spirits!" --Andrea Wulf "historian and author of The Invention of Nature, Founding Gardeners, and Chasing Venus " "Hooch, firewater, bone-loosener, giggle juice, lunatic soup. No matter what you call it or to what capacity you indulge, this is the ideal read for anyone with an affinity for the drink and a thirst for its bottomless history." --Dave Lombardo "Slayer " "Colonial Spirits is a drunken romp through an era that shares an affinity with the farm-to-table culture that is just now hitting the drinking world. Steven Grasse's insatiable curiosity with regard to history is matched only by the creativity which he applies to reinterpreting heritage recipes." --Colin Spoelman "co-founder of Kings County Distillery and co-author of Dead Distillers " "From temperance tonics to stiffer stuff, Steven Grasse takes readers on a wild romp through America's early drinking traditions and updates them for modern bars and kitchens. Let's raise our tankards to life, liberty, and the pursuit of getting well and truly oiled." --Matthew Rowley "Author of Lost Recipes of Prohibition " A center of brewing and distilling, colonial Philadelphia was the wettest town in the colonies.

Reseña del editor:

In Colonial Spirits, Steven Grasse presents a historical manifesto on drinking, including 50 colonial era-inspired cocktail recipes. The book features a rousing timeline of colonial imbibing and a cultural overview of a dizzying number of drinks: beer, rum and punch, temperance drinks, liqueurs and cordials, medicinal beverages, cider, wine, whiskey, and bourbon-all peppered with liquored-up adages from the founding fathers. There is also great guidance on DIY distilling and techniques for home brewing. Imbibe your way through each chapter, with recipes like the Philadelphia Fish House Punch (a crowd pleaser!) and Snakebites (drink alone!). Hot beer cocktails and rattle skulls have never been so completely irresistible.
