I am currently reading the book, "And a Bottle of Rum: A History of the New World in Ten Cocktails." As it turns out, the history of rum and the new world are intimately tied, and each one reveals a lot about the other.
Because of my newfound interest, a rum-tasting party is in the works. You've been warned.
Interesting! I just picked up A History of the World in 6 Glasses at the library.ReplyDelete
You might enjoy reading Salt: A World History. My old housemate, Jonah, really liked it.
