In the past few decades many of us have become foodies, but our new focus on flavour has been dominated by what we eat.
In "How to Drink" Victoria Moore aims to redress the balance, by explaining how to drink well at all times of day, on all occasions, and across every season.
Here are recipes for mint juleps in the spring, sloe gin in the autumn, hot buttered rum in the winter; and year round showstoppers, including the world's best G&T.
Moore imparts invaluable advice on creating a drinks store cupboard, the best brands of spirits, how to make perfect ice, and how glass shape affects taste. "How to Drink" is unique among drinks books - neither a garish cocktail guide, nor an intimidating wine book.
It's a hugely readable and beautiful handbook, that aims to inform, entertain, and, crucially, to ensure you are never without the perfect drink for each occasion.
