Bar Books Pt. 2

Possibly my most thumbed through tome in my collection, today I will be covering and reviewing “Imbibe!” by David Wondrich.

The blurb says “A lively, historically informed, and definitive guide to classic American mixology” and that’s exactly what it is.

Read more about this book after the break.

Bar Books Pt. 1

Yeah yeah I know, another project, you didn’t even finish rum pt.2 yet! I just wanted to try a little something different to go with my regular food and drink sections.

Today I am going to be posting a review of one my favourite books. I’m planning on doing this roughly in order of books than have provided me with the most use over the last couple of years or so, or ones that I think show the most interest for the craft. Although I have called the series bar books I will be including food as well.

Today I will be covering the first book ever published on cocktails by the worlds first ever celebrity bartender, Jerry Thomas.

Read all about “How to mix drinks or The Bon Vivants Companion” after the break.
