New for This Edition!
The Mr. Boston Bartender's Guide has been the official manual of bartenders and spirits professionals since it was first published in 1935. It has been endorsed, consulted, and considered a basic tool for bartenders for decades. In fact, over eleven million copies have been in print since it first appeared shortly after the repeal of Prohibition as an urgently needed source of answers to questions such as: How much is a dash? How do you make a dry Martini? How do you frost glasses?
- The Perfect Martini
- Flavored Vodkas
- New Margaritas
- Distinctive Whiskeys and Fine Cigars
Even experienced bartenders had trouble making the same drink taste the same way each time they mixed it. So,Mr. Boston collected the best-known and best-loved drinks recipes, tested and standardized the measurements, and presented, in alphabetical order, recipes with such clear, easy-to-follow directions that, at last, anyone could be an expert at cocktail time.
Now with new drinks, new photos, and a complete Party Planner!
Punches are an ideal way to serve a large number of guests without making individual drinks. Since they are usually made with only a single spirit, punches are also a great budget-conscious party beverage. Punch can be made with virtually any spirit, as well as wine, champagne, and even beer.
- Juice of 1 dozen lemons
- Powdered sugar
- 1 cup maraschino
- 1 cup Triple Sec
- 16 ounces Brandy
- 2 750-ml bottles chilled champagne
- 16 ounces club soda
- 16 ounces strong tea (optional)
Add enough powdered sugar to sweeten the lemon juice. Pour over a large block of ice in punch bowl and stir well. Then add remaining ingredients. Stir well and decorate with fruits in season.
