Synopses & Reviews
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.
