This book not only is good as a reference for drink recipes, but also gives insight on liquor history. Well written.

A gentle looking gray she-cat padded in, her deep cobalt eyes twinkling under the tiny sliver of moon high up in the sky. Her soft wet nose twitched as she settled down and stared around shyly. "H-Hello. I'm Rainwolf, and I was wondering if I could join as your clan's Medicine Cat?" She stopped short but carried on a moment later. "I've very skilled and I know how to heal to the best of my ability." There was a gentle aura about her that was warm and sweet, something a queen would usually have.

BlueSong stepped in gently, Her soft blue gaze falling to StrikeStar. "Greetings." The softspoken Fea murmured, Her aura one of gentleness. "I'm BlueSong; I'd like to join."
