A cocktail without a backstory is nothing more than spirits and mixers. But spike that drink with an anecdote about the people, places, and circumstances that influenced its creation, and imbibers are instantly transported to a different time. Step into a British officer’s club in 1920s Burma, disembark in colonial Bermuda, or join F. Scott Fitzgerald and Cole Porter at The Ritz Hotel in Paris. More than a sum of its parts, Storied Sips is a book about living the good life, treating oneself to a dash of civilized escapism at the end of a busy day.
