Old Man Drinks: Recipes, Advice, and Barstool Wisdom

Old Man Drinks: Recipes, Advice, and Barstool Wisdom Cover

 

Staff Pick

At first I liked Old Man Drinks for the geezer aphorisms. Then I noticed the drinks. These are workingman drinks of yesteryear and today — drinks you can order in any bar in any neighborhood in America without getting the stink eye from the bartender for ordering a trendy boutique drink. I'd have a Monte Carlo right now (page 89) except that I'm at work.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forget boring mojitos, put down that tired cosmopolitan, and stop sipping that ridiculous appletini! It's time to embrace Old Man Drinks — the cocktails your grandfather would remember from his nights on the town, way back during the Eisenhower administration.

Here you'll find histories and recipes for Old-Fashioneds, Sidecars, Clover Clubs, Rusty Nails, Hot Toddys, Monte Carlos, and more than 60 other vintage cocktails. Accompanying the text are evocative black-and-white photographs of real old men enjoying their beverages of choice and dispensing such timeless words of wisdom as 'I'm gonna die some day, so I may as well drink' and 'I've taken an involuntary vow of celibacy.'

Pull up a stool, break out the pickled eggs, and get ready for a round of Old Man Drinks.
