I'm enjoying reading this fun little book and am amazed at the author's knowledge not only of the history of these Church saints, but his bar must be very large indeed to have explored all the recipes in this book! If you know someone who enjoys learning more about the saint of the day or enjoys toasting with flair, you should introduce them to this great book! I have thoroughly enjoyed it!
This beautiful hardcover book includes beer and wine recommendations and dozens of cocktail recipes for Advent through Candlemas. Pick and choose among drink suggestions made according to the calendar, the twelve days of Christmas, the Golden Nights, and more. With each entry, learn more about the saints, the liturgical calendar, and Church history. Makes a lovely gift!
