Lonely Planet’s The World’s Best Drinks

world best drinkThe latest book from international travel media company Lonely Planet reveals the best drinks from every corner of the globe.

A round-the-world tasting, The World’s Best Drinks: Where to Find Them and How to Make Them (Lonely Planet / $14.99 / March 2016) features more than 60 authentic recipes including cocktails, delicate tea brews and zingy apertifs.

Whether it’s a spicy michelada from Mexico, a sazerac from New Orleans or a refreshing Cuban mojito, Lonely Planet’s team of bar-hopping experts provide readers with everything they need to recreate the taste of their travels at home. Each easy-to-use recipe features a section on how the drink came to be in the culture that invented it, and how it’s best enjoyed.

The World’s Best Drinks includes classics like the martini from the USA, the Bloody Mary from France and mulled cider from the UK, alongside lesser-known cocktails like the Singapore Sling, the caribou from Canada and the caipirinha from Brazil. There are plenty of options for non-alcoholic indulges as well, including horchata from Mexico and East African cardamom tea.

“This is not a mere drink guide,” said award-winning beverage journalist Victoria Moore in the book’s foreword. “It is also a travelogue that will take you to the sophisticated and chic gallerias of Milan where you can sip negronis” and beyond.

Complete with illustrations and photographs of each drink, destination and the people behind them, The World’s Best Drinks offers budding baristas, bartenders and beginning booze-lovers alike new drinks to discover, classic cocktails to master and much more.

Also available is The World’s Best Street Food: Where to Find It & How to Make It (Lonely Planet / $14.99 / March 2016) in a stylish and practical new small with more recipes. The quintessential guide to street food features 100 of the most authentic, tastiest on-the-go fare from across the planet, from taco carts to noodle stalls, and hawker markets to gelaterias.

The World’s Best Drinks is the fourth release in Lonely Planet’s World’s Best… series of food and drink books, following the first edition of The World’s Best Street Food (2012), The World’s Best Spicy Food (2014) and The World’s Best Brunches (2015).
