The videos return with a trip to Rome to explore Italy’s famously epic aperitivo happy hours. For more about drinking in Italy and the rest of the world, pre-order my new book, The Drinkable Globe!
Earlier this year I returned to London for Gin Festival and I lived to tell the tale in the latest episode of The Drinkable Globe.
My next book, The Drinkable Globe arrives in just a few short months. (Pre-order it today!) I see it largely as an extension of this site, celebrating drinking cultures around the world. It features insights on what, where, how, when and why folks drink on every continent. As a sort of countdown to its fall release, I’m going to offer small teases from now until November. Those teases will be in the form of photos, videos and even a few book excerpts here and there detailing the wide world of booze.
