Show synopsis Drink is a unique introduction to alcoholic drinks, using straight-talking language to guide the reader around the myriad styles and tastes of wines, beers and spirits. For each beer and spirit style - from lager to wheat beer, from gin to whisky - and for every major grape variety, the book explains what the drink tastes like and what choices are available in terms of style and age. There is also a listing of every key country that produces the drink, detailing style and quality. The book also features unique family trees for red wines, white wines, sparkling wines, sweet and fortified wines, lagers, beers, fruit 'n' veg based spirits and grain based spirits. Each tree guides the reader around the options for that drink, showing which variants are similar in style and flavour. Drink culminates with invaluable advice on how best to enjoy drink in everyday circumstances - whether you're matching drink with food or planning a party - and there are recipes for contemporary cocktails.
