“Victoria Moore applies charm to what is often a rather boring subject (unless you partake at the same time you read) drinking. You won’t find an ounce of boring here as she takes you through the whole gamut. The focus, is of course, alcohol related drinks which she presents seasonally. As you read, you’ll be enticed to try drinks you may never heard of before (new ones for me included Kir and Eaux-de-vie) and view old stand-bys with new appeal.” ––Project Foodie http://www.projectfoodie.com/spotlights/cookbooks/reading-for-the-foodie.html
“Unlike your typical recipe book, “How to Drink” by Victoria Moore, offers readers a guide to make what we drink taste better - from choosing the rights foods to go with your drink to selecting the right drink for the occasion or season. It’s also unusual because it’s not laden with glossy photographs, each image perfect down to its exacting garnish. Instead you have to - gasp! - use your mind to imagine the loveliness of a cucumber martini on the first warm summer day (which we frankly think looks better than any picture in a book). Moore, who lives in London and writes for the Guardian about wine, ensures no drink lover commit a beverage faux pas.” ––The San Luis Obispo Tribune http://www.sanluisobispo.com/books/story/1014142.html
“Victoria Moore’s How to Drink is not a beginner’s bar book. She is a Brit with a continental flair for libation lore. She offers little treatises on Pimms’ Cups, fresh juice, and a how-to on tea, coffee, and cocktails. I enjoyed it immensely. Ms. Moore also offers recipes for snacks and dishes to accompanies her favourite beverages. This is a great book for bon vivants!” ––DolceDolce http://www.dolcedolce.com/?cat=211
“The book is arranged by season with suggestions for everything from breakfast smoothies to after-dinner drinks. Her food selections and recipes complement the drink rather than vice versa. It is filled with useful, fun and sometimes funny advice.” ––Pittsburgh Post-Gazette http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09344/1019679-389.stm
“In the past few decades, many of us have become sophisticated about food, but we have not given the same attention to what we drink. In How to Drink, Victoria Moore aims to redress the balance, by showing how to drink well throughout the seasons and at all times of day. She explains how to make the most delicious coffee and juices; how to choose wine that complements your food; and how to make cocktails for every occasion — whether to serve a garden barbecue, as a cold weather aperitif, or just to unwind with at the end of the day. … How to Drink is a hugely readable, browseable and authoritative handbook, whose aim is to inform, entertain and crucially, make sure you can find the right drink at the right time.” ––The Gastronomer’s Bookshelf http://www.thegastronomersbookshelf.com/4762_new-release-how-to-drink
