Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Perhaps a gardener would understand that Warren Bobrow wants to help with your aches and pains. After all as a gar-tender, the methods of healing go back to the earliest times through bitters, tonics, elixirs and teas. All come from the garden. And the alcohol? Well, that may be the most active ingredient of all! Apothecary Cocktails attempts to discover the association between the healing plants in the garden to the cocktail bars of the present.
Even if you aren’t hurting somewhere on your body, just a look through this beautifully written and photographed book is bound to make you feel better." — Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, Founder, Beekman 1802
