[COCKTAILS] The Bar-Tender's Guide; or How to Mix All Kinds of Plain and Fancy Drinks

New York: Fitzgerald Publishing Company, 1887. Hardcover. 130 pages. 18.5 x 12 cm. Thomas, considered the "the father of American mixology," originally wrote this seminal work on cocktails in 1862. A first for the United States, this guide codified what was then an oral tradition of recipes from the early days of cocktails. This later edition includes all of the high points in mixology including Thomas' signature drink, the "Blue Blazer," which involved lighting whiskey afire and passing it back and forth between tow mixing glasses, creating an arc of flames. Interior clean and crisp. Owner's stamp on front end paper: Dover Publishing Co. Brown boards, black embossed cover with illustration and text. Near fine. Item #2232

Price: $625.00
