Description
From European favorites like Mastichato Chios, which reportedly saved 2,000 Greeks from a massacre at the hands of vengeful Turks, to drinks of legend like Amarula, invented by African elephants; from classic cocktail ingredients like Midori (the bright green Japanese melon drink launched at the wrap party for Saturday Night Fever at Studio 54) to student stalwart Jägermeister, dreamt up by a confidant of Herman Goering and hugely popular among senior Nazis, here are the stories behind the word's most extraordinary drinks. The country-by-country guide to the more distinctive libations of the world includes easy-to-follow recipes for creating your own, as well as dozens of cocktail recipes.

"For those whose enjoyment of food and drink is enhanced by savoring the history of what they eat and drink, Joseph Piercy's Slippery Tipples: A Guide to Weird and Wonderful Spirits & Liqueurs will be a delightful edition to their library."—Bloomsbury Review
