In Colonial Spirits, Steven Grasse presents a historical manifesto on drinking, including 50 colonial era– inspired cocktail recipes. The book features a rousing timeline of colonial imbibing and a cultural overview of a dizzying number of drinks: beer, rum and punch; temperance drinks; liqueurs and cordials; medicinal beverages; cider; wine, whiskey, and bourbon—all peppered with liquored-up adages from our founding fathers. There is also expert guidance on DIY methods for home brewing. Imbibe your way through each chapter, with recipes like the Philadelphia Fish House Punch (a crowd pleaser!) and Snakebites (drink alone!). Hot beer cocktails and rattle skulls have never been so completely irresistible.

Steven Grasse, founder of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction in Old City, Philadelphia, is the owner of the Tamworth Distilling and Mercantile and the man behind Hendrick’s Gin and Narragansett beer. Art in the Age’s line of heralded spirits have been featured in Vanity Fair, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and other publications.
