Drinking constitutes one of the most basic human needs; yet it has over time, assumed a significant role beyond just quenching thirst, within global culture. Drinking Culture and Iconic Drinks is a fascinating examination of the ceremony, the celebration and the opportunity for social gathering and interaction that has arisen out of the preparing and sharing of drinks.

Across societies as diverse as those of South America, India, Central Europe and Africa, drinking plays a pivotal role in how, why and when people come together to drink.

Researchers from the Ethnological Museum at the University of Zurich have made a fascinating study of the range and diversity of drinks consumption around the world, looking at fermented and unfermented beverages from various cultures, like kava, palm wine, cassava beer and other tea, milk, beer and wine specialties, as examples. Providing an in-depth look at the consumption of these culturally significant drinks, this comprehensive volume gives new insight and understanding into the color, meaning and importance of a diverse, yet universally shared social ritual.
