Format: Hardcover
This book is a must have for every kitchen, and especially for those who love to socialise. The `Cucumber martini' was the perfect antidote to a scorching summers day, and tips for improvements on the old classics, like the G&T, made all the difference. I found the style informative without being pretentious, with basic general information about spirits, and necessary nuggets such as how to choose the right wine or recognise whether it has past its peak. Unusual information, such as how to make ice cubes in a hurry, was useful, and it answers some of life's most confusing questions such as what is the difference between the various types of tea are. I loved the easy to use summary at the end, and the scattered recipes for accompaniments throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I don't care if it's middle class (see review below)! I've really enjoyed this book and have made a bunch of the drinks already. The 'Baby Joe' is a genuine classic - I've made it for three groups of friends already and it's been a real show stopper. The tips on how to make the perfect coffee or G&T are simple but have made a massive difference - I know that sounds ridiculous but it's true. I thoroughly recommend this one - will be my book gift for the year I think!

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book as the author has a very engaging writing style and there are genuinely funny passages in it. It is much more than a list of recipes.

Having said that, the recipes I have tried so far have been a success, and like another reviewer my coffee habits have been drastically improved!

Like Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries, this is very much a personal view -- and all the better for it. Victoria Moore's evident enthusiasm for her subject, and her mouthwatering descriptions, meant that while I was reading the book I kept having to dash into the kitchen for a fresh mint tea... and then a crisp glass of wine... and then a gin and tonic. The recipes I've tried so far - both for drinks and for nibbley things to serve with them - have been great, and the drink she refers to as her favourite (the "Campari and blood-orange thing") is fast becoming one of my favourites too. I really recommend this book -- a great gift for others, or for you!

Whatever you really enjoy drinking, whether it is tea, coffee, wines, spirits, etc., you will find this book a great companion. Drinking from the right cup, bowl or glass can make a world of difference to the occasion. Mixing the perfect gin & tonic, late night whisky drinking, aperitifs (you might even start drinking some of the wonderful sherries that are available) tea-pots and brewing tea, the right coffee mug for you, and bowls of hot cocoa on chilly mornings. Take this book to bed with you and read Victoria Moore's way of drinking. You will have pleasant dreams and then start to reorganise your drinks cupboard.

I got this book as a gift from a friend and I'm loving the 'Summer' section at the moment - the recipes - cucumber martini, raspberry hound - are all very doable and taste so good! I'm not that fond of recipe books that try to tell more story than recipe but Moore gets the balance just right - her anecdotes show (through her own example) the occassions and foods that go with each drink. She's also changed my coffee-making habits forever! A fun and genuinely useful read.

I didn't envisage (even as a wine and spirits enthusiast), finding a book of this type unputdownable, if such a word exists, but I enjoyed every morsel of How To Drink. Victoria Moore's style of writing is engaging and languid; the content is both broad and peppered with pearls of wisdom. I have everything I need at my fingertips in this one book to be able to mix the ultimate Bloody Mary, to be able to comprehend the ageing process in sherry production and so much more.

I would commend this to anyone who has an interest in all things drink-related. I anticipate my copy becoming pretty dog-eared, pretty quickly.

A great book to dip in to for inspiration and, for one who enjoys a drink but may not be the most discerning drinker, like me, it is a useful source of tips, opinions and basic does and don'ts that draw your attention even to the choices involved in making a basic cup of tea, making a habitual act all the more meaningful and pleasurable. I particularly loved the chapter on stocking up, with its decisive list of basic bottles to have in the drinks cupboard which evoked warm social gatherings kindled by beautifully mixed drinks and erased the last remaining bit of puritanism in me. A promise of many liquid pleasures.
