Celebrating summertime fun, play, and homegrown abundance is the inspiration behind DRINKING THE SUMMER GARDEN, a lushly photographed, 80-page, full-color collection of cool seasonal drinks and accompanying treats and nibbles. Using a wide range of ingredients and flavors available fresh from summer gardens and farmers markets, Gayla Trail shows you how to concoct seasonal drinks that you can’t buy in a bottle.

From frosty, low-sugar thirst quenchers that will keep the kids hydrated and happy, to fun and unusual twists on classic grown up libations, DRINKING THE SUMMER GARDEN is packed with more than 40 recipes to satisfy every taste. Featuring instruction on syrup-making, pickling, homegrown garnishes, fermenting, handcrafting liqueurs, as well as handy how-to techniques written and presented in Trail’s irreverent, friendly style, this volume will encourage and inspire further explorations in the kitchen and the garden.

$9.99 eBook Bundle

We are offering the booklet as a digital bundle. What this means is that for the price of one format, you get three files that will work on multiple devices:

  • The MOBI file is designed to work with all Kindle models
  • The EPUB file is an ebook format used by a variety of other devices and software (i.e. iPad, iPhone, Aldiko, KOBO)
  • The PDF is the closest approximation to the printed look-and-feel of the guide and can be used on the iPad, Nook, Sony Reader, KOBO, or on your computer using Preview or Acrobat.

Upon payment you will automatically be sent an email with a download links for the individual files and the full eBook bundle delivered as a single ZIP file (must be decompressed before you can add the book to your device. A Read Me file is attached that explains the formats. This is by far the best deal, plus there is no additional shipping cost!

$19.99 Paperback

We are also offering a printed version. It is a full-color, 5 x 8″ softcover pocketbook printed on matte paper. I love the way the photos look on this paper and you can draw or write notes right on it if you like. A preview of the book is available here. Please view full screen as I find that the small preview is rather poor.
