Ready for a dash of fun with your nightly reading? A is for Absinthe: A Spirited Book of ABCs takes a loving but tongue-in-cheek look at the spirits industry, providing a whimsically illustrated education on many of the tools and ingredients used in the trade with a child-friendly twist.

“I was inspired to write this book through conversations with my peers in the cocktail world, many of whom are young parents,” says author Lara Nixon. “They’re not construction workers or safari adventurers, and they wanted to teach their kids about their passions in an accessible and appropriate way.”

Parents and kids alike will be charmed by the witty rhymes and captivating drawings in this modern ABC book. 

From muddlers and strainers to orgeat,quinine, and yes, absinthe, A is for Absinthe makes for a very happy hour at bedtime.
