Switzerland has as many drinks as it does mountains, from absinthe to Kirsch, Petite Arvine to Humagne Rouge, healthy pick-me-ups to boozy keep-me-ups. Drink like the Swiss takes you on a titillating tour of this tasty (and tipsy) aspect of Swiss culture. With dozens of recipes - from cocktails to coffee to cocoa - and many delightful curiosities, Andie Pilot's colourful little book leaves no bean unground, and no bottle uncorked.
