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.
