8 CARLIN, JOSEPH M. Cocktails: A Global History.
Reaktion Books, London: 2012. Edible Series. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Gimlet, negroni, manhattan, Long Island ice tea, flirtini, hurricane, screwdriver—cocktails have come a long way from their first incarnation in the seventeenth century, when rum punch was everyone's go-to drink. Originally made of five ingredients, including a spirit, sugar, and spices, "cocktail" now refers to any drink made of liquor and a mixer. In this book, Joseph M. Carlin uncovers how many of our favorite cocktails were invented and describes how this most American of alcoholic beverages—but most international of drinks—came to influence society around the world. Traveling back to the nineteenth century, Carlin explains that, though England and the American colonies were enjoying rum punch years earlier, the true cocktail was born in America in 1806. Soon after mechanically harvested ice became widely available, Americans were sipping martinis and mint juleps in bars, saloons, and taprooms, and it didn't take long for these tasty concoctions to spill over into all corners of the globe. The result, Carlin reveals, was the birth of a number of cocktail spinoffs—cocktail parties, cocktail dresses, cocktail wieners, cocktail napkins, and the Molotov cocktail, to name just a few. Featuring many tempting recipes, Cocktail: A Global History is a book to peruse with a mimosa in the morning and a martini at night. 40 color plates, 20 halftones | 4 3/4 x 7 3/4. "Even if you've never had the urge to slurp a double daiquiri, a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, or a Bloody Mary, the preferred tipple of John Jacob Astor . . . Cocktails is a fun, fascinating read that goes down easy." --Village Voice

16 DOYLE, BRIAN WITH LINE DRAWINGS BY MARY MILLER DOYLE. The Grail: A Year Ambling & Shambling Through An Oregon Vineyard In Pursuit Of The Best Pinot Noir Wine In The Whole Wild World.
Oregon State University Press, Corvallis: 2006. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
From the red clay hills of Dundee, Oregon, come increasingly world-renowned pinot noir wines. After being startled and delighted by one winery's elixir, and the shaggy humor of the father and son who made it, Brian Doyle set out to spend a year in one Willamette Valley vineyard, chronicling the creative and chaotic labor as the winemakers chase after the perfect pinot noir. A self-described "wine doofus," Doyle follows closely at the elbow of Jesse Lange, son of Lange Winery founder Don Lange, peppering the young winemaker with questions about the growing of grapes and making of wine. With dry wit and otherworldly patience, Jesse Lange offers his interlocutor a primer on pinot, describing how acres of tiny black grapes are turned into complex and superb wines. Doyle is absorbed in the real work of winemaking, "the sheer labor of it, the creativity, the dust, the bugs, the machinery, the botany, the chemistry, the wild nuttiness of trying to make a great wine." He records the rhythms and cycles of winemaking: the fallow times, the times of wild energy, and always the worry about the precious crop. Doyle serves as a cheerful tour guide through the world of wine, alert to the colorful and riveting stories that swirl around its creation and consumption. In The Grail, he collects and shares dozens of these stories about the natural history of the vineyard, the fussiness of the pinot vine, the boom in pinot noir around the world, the surprising buying habits of tasting room visitors, and the subtle craft of winemakers who know, as Jesse Lange says, grinning, "how to get out of the way of great grapes." In short, The Grail is a spirited and entertaining chase for a truly special wine. Brian Doyle (1956-2017) was the author of many books, including the novels Mink River and The Plover; The Grail, his account of a year in a pinot noir vineyard in Oregon; and The Wet Engine, a memoir about his infant son's heart surgery and the young doctor who saved his life. He edited Portland Magazine at the University of Portland. "Like the wine Doyle writes of, these recollections are layered with subtlety and depth… Perfect for wine aficionados and word lovers, this is a full-bodied, ebullient account."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Read it, and the secrets of the French Paradox will be yours." - Peter Mayle, author of A Year in Provence and French Lessons
