An absolute must for steampunk fans and Victorian history buff.
Author Adam Selzer talks about Dickens' works and the drinks contained therein, with recipes for more than a dozen of them, almost all of which can be made from stuff that can be purchased easily even today.
Included are instructions for Dickens' own punch recipe, which you set on fire before serving. (try NOT to be the life of the party after you make that!)
Then there sherry-based drinks that are said to cure what ails you, a cold cure made from booze and fresh snow, and much more. They're the hit of every party, and a fun way to discover the great works of Charles Dickens. Selzer, author of The Smart Aleck's Guide to American History (Random House 2009), Ghosts of Chicago (Llewellyn 2013), and several published novels, talks about the books in which the drinks appear, muses about why The Pickwick Papers is sort of like Clerks, how Martin Chuzzlewit is under-rated, and more.
There are detailed instructions for recreating the drinks, with notes on whether they're any good (most of them are, but, well, some actually contain gruel).
More than 20,000 words of Victorian fun, even for novice mixologists who've never read a word of Dickens. You may want to after this! Features illustrations and an active table of contents.
