This was a great companion read to Jerry Thomas's original "How to Mix Drinks", kudos to J. for the awesome combo present. :-) This book expands upon the 1800's version, updating things, giving some more history and adding in lots of new cocktails. I made the brandy cocktail from this book (not sure why I didn't make it from the original) and it was delicious. ( )
