Inhaltsangabe: 173 Cocktail Recipes from before America's Prohibition Era including numerous absinthe, champagne cocktail, julep, pousse, cobbler, and punch recipes. Book includes a resource page for ordering ingredients, 20 fun facts and stories about drink in history (George Washington's favorite drink, why Ben Franklin "flipped," how Winston Churchill's mother inspired a New York bartender to create the Manhattan, a 1913 scandal of the "I didn't inhale" variety involving Teddy Roosevelt, and over 40 turn-of-the-20th-Century beverage-related advertisements, illustrations, railroad beverage menus, and quotes. Introduction by George Herbert Walker (grandfather of former President George Herbert Walker and great-grandfather of current President George Walker Bush).
Über den Autor: Tom Bullock was an esteemed turn-of-the-20th-Century master bartender and the first American of African descent to write a beverage book. He was so widely respected in the Country Clubs and railroad train cars where he worked that when Teddy Roosevelt was embroiled in a 1913 slander suit (he had been accused in the media of being unfit for office because of hard-drinking habits)he confessed under oath he had only tasted two sips of alcohol in his life. One of them, he testified, was "a part of" one of Tom Bullock's juleps.
Tom Bullock's numerous fans were outraged. An editorial in the St. Louis Dispatch (May, 1913) said, "Colonel Roosevelt's fatal admission that he drank just a part of one julep at the St. Louis Country Club will come very near losing his case. Who was ever know to drink just a part of one of Tom's? Tom, than who there is no greater mixologist of any race, color or condition of servitude . . . [whose potations are like] the oft-quoted liquefied soul of a Southern moonbeam falling aslant the dewy slopes of the Cumberland Mountains. To believe that a red-blooded man, and a true Colonel at that, ever stopped with just a part of one of those . . . is to strain credulity too far. Are the Colonel's powers of self restraint altogether transcendent? Have we found the living superman at last? When the Colonel says he consumed just a part of one he doubtless meant that he did not swallow the mint itself, much the ice and devour the very cup."
It became illegal for Mr. Bullock to practice his profession during Prohibition years.
D. J. Frienz edited the historic cookbook "Good Things To Eat As Suggested By Rufus." The book was written by Rufus Estes, a former slave who became one of America's finest turn-of-the-20th-Century chefs and fed many Presidents, business tycoons, and celebrities aboard Mr. George M. Pullman's Private Car (the PPC). Frienz also wrote the children's picture book "Where Will Nana Go Next?" about a hip grandmother who travels the country inspiring geography lessons and fun, fun, fun for young and old.
