Let me begin with this: this is a beautiful reference. Absolutely gorgeous. This is the kind of book that you should pick up if you want something unique and eye catching.
I asked to read this book because I honestly don’t know a lot about Absinthe, the one time I had it I did not like it because it had a black licorice taste to it. But, for cocktail fans, its something to at least be aware of. And it is a very, very old drink.
I didn’t try to make my own Absinthe, but I loved learning the history of it, how it has been involved in the recent revival, and just how it is made. Absinthe is a unique alcohol that has been around since the dark ages, believed to have mystical properties.
This was a great read, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested.
Note: I did receive a copy in exchange for an honest review.
