The Drunken Botanist: An Intoxicating Evening with Author Amy Stewart

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Amy Stewart, author of the New York Times bestsellers Wicked Plants and Wicked Bugs, returns to the Conservatory of Flowers to discuss her latest hit, The Drunken Botanist: The Plants that Create the World’s Great Drinks. With her trademark wit, Stewart will explore the dizzying array of herbs, flowers, tree, fruits, and fungi that humans have, through ingenuity, inspiration, and sheer desperation, contrived to transform into alcohol. A few are dangerous, some are downright bizarre, and one is as ancient as dinosaurs, and in this engaging talk and book reading, Stewart demonstrates how each represents a unique cultural contribution to our global drinking traditions and our history.

Enjoy complementary botanical cocktails crafted by event sponsors Lillet and Hendricks from the more than 50 drink recipes in Stewart’s book, learn tips for growing your own “cocktail garden,” and get the chance to have Stewart sign a copy of The Drunken Botanist (books will be available for purchase that evening).
