How to Mix Drinks or the Bon Vivant's Companion: The Bartender's Guide

by

First published in 1862, this seminal work in bartending was the first drink book ever published in the United States. 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. This is a nostalgic and delicious homage to a drinking era that is gone but not forgotten. Hide synopsis

    Jerry Thomas' "Bartender's Guide" is the original cocktail book; the first time today's Classics were set down in print, full of jiggers and ponys, this unique volume gives an intriguing insight into a world gone by but, fortunately for the connoisseur, or just those who might like a tipple now and then, not entirely forgotten.
