Dive into an opulent universe of punches, cobblers, toddies, slings, sours and a host of other classic old-world cocktails! Legendary bartender Jerry Thomas (1832-1885) whose name was once synonymous with quality in the world of high-end drink, compiled this seminal volume in 1862. In doing so, he codified the concoctions that have become the backbone of high-end bars around the world! Often lauded as the father of mixology, Jerry Thomas, in addition to penning this book (the first drink book ever published in America), popularized inventive drinks and elevated the practice of bartending to an art form.
At the height of his popularity in the 19th Century, people all over the country were eager to taste Thomas' recipes. While serving as the principle bartender at the Occidental Hotel in San Francisco he earned more money per week than the Vice President of the United States! Perhaps most famous for his signature cocktail, the Blue Blazer, which involves pouring flaming whiskey between two glasses to create a dramatic pyrotechnic display, Jerry Thomas laid the foundations for today's cocktail renaissance while Abraham Lincoln was still in the White House.
To this day, Thomas is celebrated as one of the most creative bartenders in history. With this trove of astounding cocktail recipes in your hand you'll never be short on inspiration behind the bar!

Alfred de Musset (1810-1857) was a French dramatist and poet, regarded as one of the first Romantic writers. He was also a prolific novelist of the romantic period and wrote some of the most memorable literary masterpieces of all times. Much influenced by Shakespeare and Schiller, Alfred de Musset wrote the first modern dramas in the French language. His early poems and plays were much appreciated in the French society earning him the reputation of being a dandy. In 1845 he was named a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. Musset was elected to the French Academy in 1852. Nowadays Musset's popularity is second only to Racine and Moliere. "My glass is not big, but I drink out of my own glass," he once stated self-consciously. Musset had a profound grasp of the psychology of love and his portraits of women were multidimensional.
The Rev. Mr. Jennings is tall and thin. He is middle-aged, and dresses with a natty, old-fashioned, high-church precision. He is naturally a little stately, but not at all stiff. His features, without being handsome, are well formed, and their expression extremely kind, but also shy. I met him one evening at Lady Mary Heyduke's. The modesty and benevolence of his countenance are extremely prepossessing. We were but a small party, and he joined agreeably enough in the conversation. He seems to enjoy listening very much more than contributing to the talk; but what he says is always to the purpose and well said. He is a great favourite of Lady Mary's, who it seems, consults him upon many things, and thinks him the most happy and blessed person on earth. Little knows she about him.
