Truly, this magical book will forever alter the way you interact with the natural world that is all around you." Marisa McClellan, Food in Jars

HASH(0xa579e8d0) out of 5 stars beautiful book about well-made drinks with herbal and foraged ingredients March 11 2016
By Autumn - Published on
Format: Paperback
What I appreciated most about Wild Drinks and Cocktails is that it’s a book about well-made drinks with high-quality ingredients that is still super accessible, ie: not snobby at all! Emily does a great job of talking about potentially lesser-known ingredients, like hawthorn berries, and conveying what they are and why they’re worth knowing. The first recipe that I made from the book was the Hawthorn Cordial and I ended up experimenting with it in a number of gin-based cocktails. So good!

HASH(0xa579e7f8) out of 5 stars I am so excited! My copy of Wild Drinks ... Oct. 19 2015
By mobi - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am so excited! My copy of Wild Drinks & Cocktails was just delivered to my doorstep and I am paging through it, astonished by the variety of recipes, the stunning photographs, and the friendly, clear and encouraging instructions. This book, written with warmth, insight, and interesting facts, will be a companion for many seasons to come. From Dandelion and Chicory Chai to Pomegranate Molasses Switchel to Mulled Wine laced with pink pepper and fennel seeds -- each recipe celebrates a connection to the natural world and serves as an invitation to open one's senses. These are more than recipes -- these are maps to restoring a sense of wonder and finding creative ways to nurture one's self and others.

By Lori Grace - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bought this book after a webinar I saw with Emily and I'm absolute loving the variety of drinks! As an Herbalist of many years, I am amazed at the different combinations of goodness she incorporates! I especially love the syrups and the Grapefruit and Sage Kefir Water! Yum! Got my Ginger Bug going and can't wait to use it to make healthy fizzy drinks for me and my grand kids! Thank you Emily for writing this book!

HASH(0xa601bf3c) out of 5 stars So much fun! April 26 2016
By Elizabeth - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was on my wishlist, and I got it for my birthday. Have made several switchels and syrups. I love that I can make tasty drinks that are just as good without the alcohol! I am buying this for my mom for Mother's Day because it is just so much fun.

Great diversity of drinks from the very healthy to cocktails. Easy to follow directions and very helpful tips throughout the book. I have several fermentation books and this is the one I always turn to when making fermented drinks.
