Staff Reviews


This is such a cool book, I love it! Flipping through the drinks in this book, it's hard to decide what to make first. My favorite part is the variety of non-alcoholic drinks from refreshing lemonades and spritzers to satisfying flavored coffees and shakes. These handcrafted beverages are taken to a new level in this beautifully photographed collection of recipes.

Description


Over 100 recipes for soft and hard drinks--including natural sodas, fruit nectars, tisanes, shrubs, kombucha, bitters, liqueurs, wines, infused liquors, party punches, and more--from the author of Handmade Gatherings.

From homemade root beer to hard cider, fresh-squeezed ginger lemonade to handcrafted Irish cream, do-it-yourself beverages are gaining interest and intrigue across the culinary spectrum. Professional mixologists and amateur home cooks alike are looking for beverages to inspire and satisfy, sourced from a variety of natural and seasonal ingredients. Quench offers the solution, covering the entire beverage range with hot, cold, fermented, infused, and cured offerings. There's something here for every palate, occasion, and need. Quench promises to help you pour a glass of whatever it is you're thirsting for.
