The 55 spritz recipes in Spritz Fever! are in the cocktail style of the decade. Seeing as most spritzes are low(ish) in ABV (well, certainly lower than wine anyway), they’re the ideal companion for any day drinking event. Plus, as most Instagram feeds can attest, spritzes aren’t just a drink… They’re a lifestyle. These bubbly wonders speak to a careless Italian summer, spent reclining by the beach in fine and flowing linen.
What can be so easy to forget is that spritzes are so much more than just Aperol and bubbles. In this book, you’ll learn about the classic European liqueurs, like Cynar, Campari, Luxardo Bitter, Meletti, and more. Moreover, you’ll discover the nuances between prosecco, cava and champagne can create different textures as the bubbles in each effervesce uniquely. Plus, read up on how citrus garnishes must be matched appropriately to each drink’s flavour profile, and, of course, colour. Above all, follow the perfect ratio of liqueur-to-bubbles changes for each recipe. Spritz Fever! explains all of this, alongside its dreamy illustrations.
It’s time you get to the very essence of effervescence. Your next party guests will love all the cocktail recipes you glean from Spritz Fever!, and just in time for summer!

Going back to basics, small breweries are using meticulous craftsmanship to create beers with rich taste. These beers represent a new authenticity and way of life. For some, beer has always been a treat for body and soul. Now, beer is establishing itself as the drink of choice among a hipper, cultured audience. "Brew it yourself" is more than a trend; its the credo of a new creative scene that has developed around beer and is questing for its lost taste. What began over 30 years ago with hobby brewers in the United States has today become an international movement with beer-loving adherents from Europe to South Africa. Small enterprises worldwide are combining fresh ideas with traditional methods to create outstanding craft beers. Their inspired experimentation has resulted in a growing range of products that are rekindling passion for the golden goodness. No matter how they are brewed or whether they feature special flavors or new production methods, these beers are all made for maximum drinking enjoyment for those with discerning tastes. Their packaging design is as characteristic as the beers themselves and includes striking labels or bottles with unusual shapes or colors. Barley & Hops gives beer connoisseurs a behind-the-kettles look at their favorite beverage from its historical origins and regional distinctions to current developments. The book includes portraits of those who are united in their passion for craft beer, the brewing process, and creating something unique.
