Delicious alcoholic and soft drinks to make at home The taste and flavours of freshly made drinks cannot be beaten. Farm shops and delis now stock craft-made, authentic products that retain the integrity of the ingredients they are made with. Artisan Drinks celebrates the pleasure to be had from making your own drinks ... a pursuit that gets under your skin, encouraging you to create more and more, and one that equips you with new skills and a wealth of expertise. Lindy Wildsmith takes a wholesome approach to sourcing natural ingredients for infusing, macerating, pressing, brewing and fermenting your own drinks, both with and without alcohol, and enthuses on the pleasures of the outdoors and of becoming intimate with the seasons and the plants, fruits and flowers that grow around you. Lindy starts by covering the subjects of sourcing and safety, storing and keeping ... elements of which are featured throughout the book. She then divides the book by style of drink, covering everything from cordials and sparkling drinks to wines, liqueurs, cocktails, and tisanes and teas. Artisan Drinks is packed with useful tips on how to conserve drinks to enjoy with friends and family, or on giving them as gifts with the satisfaction of knowing you made them yourself.
