   A personalized insight into the world’s most thoughtful cocktail culture
Julia's book is my favorite of 2021. I hope it will join the library of modern cocktail literary classics, as its explanation of the philosophy and ritual behind the world's most thoughtful cocktail culture provides unique insight. Her personal experiences are the lens through which we can understand what makes the Japanese school original and her personal recipes organized by season not only allow a deeper understanding of Japanese cocktail culture, but also of Japanese culture itself.
