The Drinkable Globe countdown begins: Polish vodka

 

My next book, The Drinkable Globe arrives in just a few short months. (Pre-order it 20. ShotnPickle-Polandtoday!) 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.
