The Drunken Botanist

No matter if you're drinking vodka, gin, rum, or whiskey, your booze of choice came from a plant of one form or another. The Drunken Botanist ($12) takes a look at this grand tradition of fermentation and distillation, with tons of information and stories about various drinks. And should you think it's all just boring facts, rest assured that the 400-page book also contains over 50 drink recipes, as well as growing tips for those looking to grow their own garnishes.

  • Literary Rogues

    And here you thought rockers and actors were the only ones with lavish drug and sex addictions to write about. Literary Rogues: A Scandalous History of Wayward Authors ($10) looks at those writers who did battle with inner demons on a grand, and thus historically notable, scale. Starting with the Marquis de Sade and continuing all the way up through Hunter S. Thompson, Bret Easton Ellis, and even the infamous James Frey, it provides an entertaining yet startling look at the way outlandish behavior and literary genius have often been linked. See also: Hunter S. Thompson's daily routine.

  • Cannabis Cupcakes

    So it may or may not be legal in your area, but even if it's some legal grey area — and by "grey area", we mean "not legal" — that doesn't mean you don't need something more to do with your greens than just throw them into a colorful piece of glass. Cannabis Cupcakes: 35 Mini Marijuana Cakes to Bake and Decorate ($12) is pretty much what it says on the cover, giving you recipes like Snickers Muffins and Toxic Red Velvet Cupcakes to bake your bake-fuel into. Lest you question the credibility of the author, just know he's responsible for titles such as Spliffs, Spliffs 2, Spliffigami, Bongology, Baked!, and Seed to Weed. And no, we didn't make all those up. Promise.
