pt. I. We explore the twin alchemical processes of fermentation and distillation, from which wine, beer, and spirits issue forth -- pt. II. We then suffuse our creations with a wondrous assortment of nature's bounty -- pt. III. At last we venture into the garden, where we encounter a seasonal array of botanical mixers and garnishes to be introduced to the cocktail in its final stage of preparation
