9781332017218: How to Mix Drinks, or the Bon-Vivant's Companion: Containing Clear and Reliable Directions for Mixing All the Beverages Used in the United States, ... German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish Recipes

Excerpt from How to Mix Drinks, or the Bon-Vivant's Companion: Containing Clear and Reliable Directions for Mixing All the Beverages Used in the United States, Together With the Most Popular British, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish Recipes

Philadelphia Fish House punch. The rest we owe to the inspiration of Jerry Thomas himself, and as he is as inexorable as the Medes and Persians in his principle that no excellent drink can be made out of any thing but excellent materials, we conceive that we are safe in assert ing that whatever may be prepared after his instructions will be able to Speak eloquently for itself. Good wine needs no bush, Shakespeare tells us and over one of Jerry's mixtures eulogy is quite as redundant.

About the Author:

Jeremiah (Jerry) Thomas was an American bartender considered to be the father of American mixology because of his pioneering work in popularizing cocktails in the United States. His showmanship established the image of the bartender as a creative professional. He learned his trade in the East, but worked as a bartender in California during the gold rush, St. Louis, Chicago, Charleston, New Orleans, and New York. Thomas even toured Europe, where he displayed his elaborate, flashy techniques of mixology, often juggling bottles, cups, and mixers. Eventually he returned to New York where he opened his most famous bar on Broadway between 21st and 22nd Streets. At one point, he was earning $100 a week, more than the vice president of the United States. When he died of apoplexy in 1885, his death was marked by substantial obituaries across the country. The "New York Times" noted Thomas was at one time better known to club men and men about town than any other bartender in this city, and he was very popular among all classes.
