We start with the new book: Proof: The Science of Booze. “Humans have been perfecting the science of alcohol production for ten thousand years, but modern scientists are only just beginning to distill the complex reactions behind the perfect buzz. In a spirited tour across continents and cultures, Adam Rogers puts our alcoholic history under the microscope, from our ancestors’ accidental discovery of fermented drinks to the cutting-edge laboratory research that proves why—or even if—people actually like the stuff”. OK you got our attention!
Liquid Intelligence. The perfect gift yourself, your favorite bartender, or for the host of your holiday party: Liquid Intelligence, a book from Dave Arnold, of Booker & Dax the hot NYC high-tec bar. In Dave’s world, the shape of an ice cube, the sugars and acids in an apple, and the bubbles in a bottle of champagne are all ingredients to be measured, tested, and tweaked.
