Victoria Moore

How to Drink

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. 4.0 out of 5 based on 1 reviews

Reviews

The Daily Mail

Jane Shilling

[Both Moore and her book] are clever, trenchant, knowledgeable, imaginative, opinionated to the point of bossiness, with a palate of restless, not to say surreal, sensitivity... If Moore were a beverage, one would note her astringent top notes, vibrant colour and complex finish.
