In six enduring novels, Jane Austen captured the fancies and foibles of Regency England, and every delightful page of this book celebrates the picnics, luncheons, dinner parties, and glamorous balls of Austen's world. At these social engagements, gossip reigned, love flourished, and drinks flowed.
Learn what she and her characters would have drunk and then stir up your own concoctions that evoke the past but suit today's taste.
Raise your glass to Sense and Sensibility and a Brandon Old-Fashioned, Elinorange Blossom, or Just a Dashwood. Toast Pride and Prejudice with a Fizzy Miss Lizzie, Gin & Bennet, or Salt & Pemberley. Brimming with enlightening quotes from the novels and Austen's letters, beautiful photographs, and period design, this intoxicating volume is a must have for any devoted Janeite.
