Alcohol has been used in every medicinal system since the beginning of time. Study the worlds' herbal history and you will find tinctures, medicated wines and various other topical potions. Alcohol is amazing at extracting the medicinal benefits of plants and herbs, delivering them to the body to relieve pain and promote healing. So why aren't we applying all that knowledge to our cocktails? I mean, if it's good for my kidneys to put my foot behind my head, there has to be an herb I can put in my martini to promote... something. Right? Well, yes, actually there is. Using Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine, I have not only created delicious cocktail recipes; I have broken the properties of each spirit and herb down so that you can discover how to drink to balance your body. That's right folks, healthy drinking! By the time you are done with this you will understand why some alcohols work for you while others leave you praying to the Porcelain Goddess.
