Bought this book after a webinar I saw with Emily and I'm absolute loving the variety of drinks! As an Herbalist of many years, I am amazed at the different combinations of goodness she incorporates! I especially love the syrups and the Grapefruit and Sage Kefir Water! Yum! Got my Ginger Bug going and can't wait to use it to make healthy fizzy drinks for me and my grand kids! Thank you Emily for writing this book!

What I appreciated most about Wild Drinks and Cocktails is that it’s a book about well-made drinks with high-quality ingredients that is still super accessible, ie: not snobby at all! Emily does a great job of talking about potentially lesser-known ingredients, like hawthorn berries, and conveying what they are and why they’re worth knowing. The first recipe that I made from the book was the Hawthorn Cordial and I ended up experimenting with it in a number of gin-based cocktails. So good!

Great diversity of drinks from the very healthy to cocktails. Easy to follow directions and very helpful tips throughout the book. I have several fermentation books and this is the one I always turn to when making fermented drinks.

I am so excited! My copy of Wild Drinks & Cocktails was just delivered to my doorstep and I am paging through it, astonished by the variety of recipes, the stunning photographs, and the friendly, clear and encouraging instructions. This book, written with warmth, insight, and interesting facts, will be a companion for many seasons to come. From Dandelion and Chicory Chai to Pomegranate Molasses Switchel to Mulled Wine laced with pink pepper and fennel seeds -- each recipe celebrates a connection to the natural world and serves as an invitation to open one's senses. These are more than recipes -- these are maps to restoring a sense of wonder and finding creative ways to nurture one's self and others.

Such an interesting book. Not only does it have a lot of recipes for cocktail beverages, but there are loads of recipes for non-alcoholic brews as well. In addition there is a lot of information about bitters and the uses of plants for health that taste great. LOVE this book!

This was on my wishlist, and I got it for my birthday. Have made several switchels and syrups. I love that I can make tasty drinks that are just as good without the alcohol! I am buying this for my mom for Mother's Day because it is just so much fun.

Emily Han includes so many tips to go along with her recipes. I love the fact there are so many fresh ingredients that I can walk out my door to retrieve. If you like herbs and yummy drinks, I'd buy this book! So many pretty pictures, too:)

This book is fabulous, interesting and a makes a great gift! The author is very talented and one to watch.
