"The Old-Fashioned" Book
A complete history of one of the world's most iconic cocktails--now the poster child of the modern cocktail revival--with 50 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.
The perfect gift for any whiskey-loving gent, the book boasts a sleek, stylish package with striking photography throughout. With 50 elegant, delicious, and totally-within-reach cocktail recipes, The Old-Fashioned is destined to become a classic on par with its namesake beverage.
