This book is very well written with bright pictures. Easy to follow instructions to make delicious drinks. How about some Rhubarb wine? Rhubarb is a great ingredient to use for your first winemaking adventure since it is the first "fruit" (technically a vegetable) of the year to ripen and is so easy to make. Young rhubarb yields a pretty pink potion, but if you grow your own, it's also a great way to use up any tougher, stringy sticks. This is going to be the first one I make. *I was given this book for a honest review.*
