review The Bartender's Guide: How to Mix Drinks: A Bon Vivant's Companion Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ First published in 1862 this seminal work in bartending marks the first time many of today's classics were recorded in print Collected here by Jerry Thomas—America’s most famous barD standards to mixes invented by Thomas himself including his trademark drink The Blue Blazer Guides for mixing drinks of all categories including sours fizzes and highballs are included along with instructions on using various. The title of this book got me excited as it sounds like an actual bartender has written this is sharing his recipes for old new cocktail recipes My only problem the only reason I've given this book a 3 star rating ismy digital copy is in such fine teeny tiny print I have no idea if Jimmy Thomas is a famous world renowned bartender or if he's just a next door neighbor that's making up his own cocktails he enjoys drinking I'm sure he's a legitimate bartender working at a very busy bar somewhere but I'm unable to read any of his introduction to really knowThe drinks themselves although also in such a fine print I'm able to easily see some of the recipes come to conclusion they're simple to make for the most part as long as you have a fully stocked bar with most of the usuals a bar would contain I know I saw some recipes for old fashioned drinks that we've all heard of but might not know exactly how many parts of each liuor to use in order to make it I also saw some recipes that looked very easy to make sounded good would be nice to add at your next cocktail party Add a few new ones to the old ones people will start flocking to your home as opposed to the local bar that may or may not know how to make some of the newer named drinks I sawIt is uite unfortunate my digital copy is of such poor uality that it makes me not really want to keep it on my iPad to try mixing some since I'd most likely need bright lighting a magnifying glass to read some of them I also didn't really see an easy table of contents that would put the drinks in any sort of order to be looked up easily BUT just because I didn't see it in its super fine print doesn't mean it doesn't exist There may very well be a table of contents an order to things I just can't see it all that well It saddens me as I don't really believe this book deserves the 3 stars but in good conscience since I can barely read it I just can't give it stars I got my digital copy from net galley Dover Publications in return this is my honest review to which I'll add I looked again I see an index alphabetically listing drinks I think part of this book is a reprint from 1887 Again this was all lost on me at first read but further looking found that information It still is such fine print I cannot read the introduction as to who this bartender iswas which might make this even exciting interesting
