The Old Fashioned
A complete history of one of the world's most iconic cocktails--now the poster child of the modern cocktail revival--with fifty recipes for classic variations as well as contemporary updates.
In this fun, unexpected, and informative guide, New York Times spirits columnist Robert Simonson explores the history of the Old Fashioned: its birth as the "ur-cocktail" in the late nineteenth century, ascension in the 1950s and 1960s (as portrayed and repopularized by Don Draper on Mad Men), and renaissance as the star of the contemporary craft cocktail movement. A perfect Father's Day gift for any whiskey-loving gent, the book boasts a sleek, stylish package with striking photography throughout. With fifty elegant, delicious, and totally-within-reach cocktail recipes, The Old Fashioned is destined to become a classic on par with its namesake beverage.
