Summary
And a Bottle of Rum tells the raucously entertaining story of America as seen through the bottom of a drinking glass. With a chapter for each of ten cocktails - from the grog sailors drank on the high seas in the 1700s to the mojitos of modern club hoppers - Wayne Curtis reveals that the homely spirit once distilled from the industrial waste of the exploding sugar trade has managed to infiltrate every stratum of New World society
Summary
Traces the history of America from the perspective of ten different cocktails, discussing the role of rum in the New World, from the colonial period to the present day, in a study that blends pop culture, historical trivia, and libation lore
