I guess the best I can say is that it is decently written and easy to read, probably well researched. But as far as entertainment value, not so much.
And as far as usable recipes, well I spent more time thinking how gross all those fermented milk drinks had to be. LOL I admit there were several that I might try If you have a slight interest in the Victorian era drinks, then sure. I'll keep it on my bookshelf if Well, it's definitely a niche market. I'll keep it on my bookshelf if I decide to concoct one of these.

This book was great value and is a must for any would be Victorian bar tenders out there or Steam Punk fans who want to delve a little deeper into that world. This book was my style. A drinking book centered with a steampunk theme, and this book had some allegedly legit Victorian booze recipes along with more modern day versions of them.

I have not made any of the recipes in this book and really don't plan to , but I pretty much read it cover to cover because it's so laugh out loud funny in a lot of sections with many historical themed jokes - don't see that very often!

The recipes are quite revealing in that Victorians appear to a have used alcohol to sterilize their proteins and dairies while also getting their vitamin C, and b these genteel ladies gathering for some afternoon punch either had some pretty high tolerance levels or got pretty wasted each night.
Witty writing. Some of the period recipes sound repulsive, others sound actually pretty good. Gets a little repetitive in places and could use some pictures I doubt I'll ever make any of these, but it was fun to read. Aug 18, Jenna Lyday rated it really liked it. What I was hoping was to find drink recipes that were made a. So far, it seems to be shaping up to be just that with a dash of humor for spice. Almost all of the recipes maintain the level of humor established with the almond milk, and while it's not exactly a history, per se, there are a lot of interesting little historical tidbits about daily life sprinkled throughout.
And martha Washington was apparently a damn fine mixologist. Feb 07, Jyllian Martini rated it it was amazing. A recipe book that makes you think and chuckle--yes anything by Alton Brown.
A recipe book that might make you gag just a bit milk punches? I appreciate the authenticity of the recipes --being someone who had a few degrees in English Lit, but I also appreciate the modern alternatives. Dec 21, Gail rated it really liked it Shelves: steampunk , feed-yourself.
