The Bartender’s Guide
From the cover to the recipes, this book is suuuuper dated.
This is a little paperback with yellowed pages and tiny font. The cover has a very 70’s vibe. It does have a pretty convenient glossary, pictured below, but that’s about all it has going for it 46 years later. It was a fine selection for a public library in the 1970s, but we can do better than this now.
Also, do/did people really drink cocktails with raw eggs in them? There’s a recipe in the second picture below that has rum, port, an egg, and a teaspoon of sugar. They should name it the Salmonella Special.
