First published in 1862, this seminal work in bartending marks the first time many of today's classics were recorded in print. Collected here by Jerry Thomas-America's most famous bartender-are dozens of cocktail recipes, from old standards to mixes invented by Thomas himself, including his trademark drink, The Blue Blazer. Guides for mixing drinks of all categories-including sours, fizzes, and highballs-are included along with instructions on using various bartending tools, from jiggers to ponies and beyond. With a glossary to help all bon vivants remember their demijohns from their drachms, this is a nostalgic and delicious homage to a drinking era that is gone but not forgotten.
