To say this book is anything but fantastic is just wrong. The ebook copy I received was a little difficult to read, but who cares! I read this book cover to cover, dying to try all these drinks. I am going to bring my kindle with me next time I get to a bar. A MUST have for any drink enthusiast! When I see it on the shelf, I am going to pick up a paper copy too!
“Care for a Morning Glory Cocktail, a Blue Blazer, or a Philadelphia Julep? Recipes for these and hundreds of other tasty libations appear in this landmark volume. Originally published in 1862, Jerry Thomas’ Bartenders Guide is widely considered by drink historians as the first serious American book on cocktails and punches.
“A new beverage is the pride of the bartender, and its appreciation and adoption his crowning glory,” declared Jerry Thomas (1830–85), the most famous bartender of his era. Known as “the father of American mixology,” Thomas developed the showy techniques practiced at his saloons throughout California and New York. From hot whiskey toddies to wedding punch to “temperance drinks,” this extensive compilation of timeless recipes will delight modern-day mixologists and their guests.”
