As unique and refreshing as the drinks themselves, The Boat Drinks Book is an inside look at cocktail culture in harbors around the world. The book is split into five regions: Atlantic, Mediterranean, Baltic, Pacific, and Caribbean. Author Fiona Sims is on a mission to encourage us to explore waterfront regions through local food and drink, getting to the heart of each harbor by seeking out specialist merchants, hanging out in legendary bars, and uncovering distilleries, breweries, and wineries all within a short taxi ride of your boat. Sims also provides insights into how to make the most of traditional markets for provisioning and spreading your cocktail table.

The Boat Drinks Book shares tips on cocktail creation as well. Sims' drink recipes will inspire you to whip up something delicious--using local liqueurs, wines, spirits, and produce--to sip on deck at the end of a long day's cruising or exploring. There's even a scattering of recipes for ultimate boat nibbles, inspired by each region, from easy tapenade to tapas. So whether you're a seasoned sailor or an armchair aperitif enthusiast, grab a copy of The Boat Drinks Book and let expert food and wine writer Fiona Sims quench your thirst. Your mission: to discover and enjoy.
