In need of a very stiff drink? If you can hang in there, you’ll soon be able to chase the Oxford Companion to Beer with Dave Wondrich’s Oxford Companion to Spirits and Cocktails. While the inimitable author of Imbibe! and Punch! will not get an exclamation point for the title of his next book, Publishers Marketplace reports it will have “1,000 to 1,200 detailed A-Z entries on all aspects of distilled spirits and cocktails around the world.” You’re going to need a bigger bookshelf.
