A lively, historically informed, and definitive guide to classic American cocktails.

Cocktail writer and historian David Wondrich presents the colorful, little-known history of classic American drinks-and the ultimate mixologist's guide-in this engaging homage to Jerry Thomas, father of the American bar.

Wondrich reveals never-before-published details and stories about this larger-than-life nineteenth-century figure, along with definitive recipes for 100 punches, cocktails, sours, fizzes, toddies, slings, and other essential drinks, plus twenty new recipes from today's top mixologists, created exclusively for this book.

This colorful and good-humored volume is a mustread for anyone who appreciates the timeless appeal of a well-made drink-and the uniquely American history behind it.

About the Author:
David Wondrich is one of the world's foremost authorities on cocktails and their history. A contributing editor at Esquire and Wine and Spirits, he has written for numerous other publications on the subject, including the New York Times, O Magazine, Saveur, Bon Appetit, Real Simple, and Drinks, and is the author of Esquire Drinks and Killer Cocktails.
Review:
"{Jerry} Thomas finally gets his due in Imbibe!....Mr. Wondrich puts the drinks in context, with their ingredients explained, their measurements accurately indicated, and their place in the overall cocktail scheme clearly mapped out. At the same time, Thomas himself appears, for the first time, as a living presence: a devotee of bare-knuckle prize fights, a flashy dresser fond of kid gloves, an art collector, a restless traveler usually carrying a fat wad of bank notes and a gold Parisian watch. A player, in short."
--William Grimes, The New York Times

"This book will leave you shaken and, I hope, stirred. Wondrich, one of the top spirits writers in the country, delves into the rich and fascinating history of mixology in America."
--USA Today

"Imbibe brings back the delicious forgotten cocktails created by a pioneering American bon vivant....This book is a model for food history writing....{Wondrich is} always an enjoyable writer, curious, eager, mildly opinionated and with a taste for the amusing."
--The Los Angeles Times

"Cocktail connoisseurs and history buffs will find this book an essential addition to their reference libraries." --The San Francisco Chronicle

"Wondrich offers what amounts to a history of industrial-age America writ in booze, covering everything from punches, fizzes, and sours to toddies, slings, and juleps."
--Saveur, Top Ten Reads

"How and why America rose to world preeminence in mixology is explained zestfully in Imbibe!."
--Forbes

"With Imbibe!, David Wondrich's biography of 19-century mixologist Jerry Thomas, cocktails do the time warp."
--New York Daily News

"Wondrich delivers a well-researched chronicle of "Professor" Jerry Thomas's life and times as late 19th-century bartender extraordinaire...a lovely homage to Thomas's indomitable spirits."
--Publishers Weekly
