Everyday Drinking is a book of articles that were written by Kingsley Amis. It sets an approach to drinking that follows experimentation, enjoyment and entertaining as core tenets.
When I first read Kingsley’s book, I was taken by his thoughts on making cocktails at home, his interest in the history of drinks and the spirits that make them and his fusion of a tongue in cheek humour to bring his writing to life.
While I can’t claim to have achieved the heady literary heights of Kingsley, I’ll use him as my beacon as I talk about making drinks at home, my adventures visiting cocktail bars in Sydney, around the country and around the world. I’ll also write about people and products that have taken my fancy.
