This is the most complete very first edition * A reprint of the primary 1862 edition of Jerry Thomas' Bartenders Guide" The best ways to Mix Drinks or A Bon Vivant's Buddy ". This beverage dish book is probably the most well-known bartenders' and cocktail book of perpetuities, and it was the very first real cocktail book ever published in the United States. This is a nostalgic and scrumptious homage to a drinking era that is gone but not forgotten. * In 1862 Thomas finished the Bartender's Guide (at the same time titled How to Mix Drinks or The Bon-Vivant's Buddy), the very first cocktail book ever published in the United States. The book collects and codifies what was then an oral custom of dishes from the early days of mixed drinks, consisting of some of his own productions; the guide lays down the concepts for creating alcoholic drinks of all categories. This very first edition of the guide consist of the very first written dishes of such mixed drinks as the DAISY, the MINT JULEP. the FIZZ, the FLIP, Sour and many many more. To name a few well-known beverages are the BLUE BLAZER, the EYE-OPENER, the ENGINE, the PICK-ME-UP, the CORPSE-REVIVER, and CHAIN-LIGHTNING. ****** This 1862 editions is the primary published edition, which has 238 pages (The 1887 edition, pulished 25 years later on, has 132 pages just) ******
