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
No single cocktail is as iconic, as beloved, or as discussed and
fought-over as the Old-Fashioned. Its formula is simple: just
whiskey, bitters, sugar, and ice. But how you combine those
ingredients-in what proportion, using which brands, and with what
kind of garnish-is the subject of much impassioned debate.
The Old-Fashioned is the spirited, delightfully
unexpected story of this renowned and essential drink: its birth as
the ur-cocktail in the nineteenth century, darker days in the
throes of Prohibition, re-ascension in the 1950s and 1960s (as
portrayed and re-popularized by Don Draper on Mad Men),
and renaissance as the star of the contemporary craft cocktail
Also featured are more than forty cocktail recipes, including
classic variations, regional twists, and contemporary updates from
top bartenders around the country. All are accessible, delicious,
and elegant in their simplicity, demonstrating the versatility and
timelessness of the Old-Fashioned formula.
With its rich history, stunning photography, and impeccable
recipes, The Old-Fashioned is a celebration of one of
America's greatest bibulous achievements. It is a necessary
addition to any true whiskey- or cocktail-lover's bookshelf, and
destined to become a classic on par with its namesake beverage.
