Entered nccocding to Actof Congress,in the year1S62,hj


In the Clerk's Of&co of the District Courtof tbo United States, for the Southern District of Now York.'

a A. ALTonn, primtbb.

u'cnxa a miller, stereottpitrs.



Ik all ages of the world, and in all countries, men have in dulged in"so cial drinks." Thoy have al ways possess ed thomselves ofsomepopu lar boverago apart from water and thoso of the breakfast and tea table. "Whether it is judicious that m a D k i n d should con


tinue to indulge; iu such things, or whether it would bo wiser to abstain from all enjoyments of that character, it is not our province to decide. Woleavo that question to tlio moral philosopher. Wo simply contend that a rolish for "social drinks" is universal; that those drinks exist in greater variety in the United States than in any other country in the world; and that ho, therefore, who proposes to impart to these drinks not only the most palatable but the most wholesome characteristics of which tboy may bo made susceptible, is a genuine public benefactor. That is exactly our object in introducing tliis little volume to the public. We do not propose to porsuado any roan to drink, for instance,a punch, or a julep, or a cocktail, who has uover happened to make the acquaint ance ofthose refreshing articles under circumstances calculated toinduce more intimate relations; but wo do propose to instruct those whose "in timate relations" in question render them somewhat fastidious, in the daintiest fashions thorcunto pertaining. We very well reiiiember seeing one day in London, in the rear of th©


Bank of England,a small drinking saloon that had been set «p "by a peripatetic ^\jnorican, at the door of which was placcd a board covered with.thc unique titles of the American mixed drinks supposed to bo pre pared within that limited establishment. Tho "Connecticut eye-open ers" and "Alabama fog-cutters," together with tho "lightning-smashes" and the "thunderbolt-cocktails," created a piofound sensation in tho crowd assembled to peruse tho Sectarian bill of faro, if they did not produce custom. It struck us, then, that a list of all the social drinks —the composite beverages, if wo may call tbera so—of America, would really bo one of tho curiosities of jovial literature; and that if it was combined with a catalogue of tho mixtures common to other nations, and made practically useful by tho addition of a concise description of the various processes for "brewing" each, it would bo a "blessing to mankind-" There would be no excuse for imbibing,with such a book at hand,tho "villainous compounds" of bar-keeping Goths and Vandals, who know no more of the amenities of bon vivant oxistonco than a Hot tentot can know of the hoitguet of champagne. "There's philosophy," says Father Tom in tho drama,"even in a jug of punch." "Wo claim the credit of "philosophy teaching by example," then,to no ordinary extent in tho composition of this volume; for our index cxliibits tho title of eighty-six diiTorcnt kinds of punches,together with a universe of cobblers,juleps,bitters, cups,slings,shrubs, Ac.,each and all of which the reader is carefully educated how to concoct in tho choicest manner. For tho perfection of this education, tho namo, alone, of J«mjThomas is a sufScient guarantee. Ho has travelled Europe and America in search of all that is recondite in this brancli of tho spirit art. 'He has been tho Jupiter Olympus of the bar at the Metropolitan Hotel in this city. He was tho presiding deity at tho Planter's House, St. Louis. Ho has been tho proprietor of one of tho most recherche saloons in Hew Orleans as well as in Now York. His very namo issynonymous in the lexicon of mixed drinks, with all that is rare and original. To the "Wine Press," edited by F. S. Cozzens, Esq., we are indebted for the cppposition of several valuable punches, and among them wo may particularize the celebrated "Nuremburgh," and tho equally famous "Philadelphia Fish House" punch. The rest wo owe to tho inspiration of J^ry Tfiomas himself, and as he is as inexorable as tho Modes and Persians in his principle that no excellent drink can be made out of any thing but excellent materials, we q^ceive that we are safe in assert ing that whatever may be prepared after his instructions will be able to speak eloquently for itself. "Good wine needs no bush," Shakespeare tells us and over one of Jerry's mixtures eulogy is quite as redundant.

To make punch of any sort in perfection, the ambrosi^ essence of the lemon must be extracted by rubbing lumps ofsugar on the rind,which breaks the delicate little vessels that contain the essence, and at the same time absorbs it. This, and making the mixtm'c sweet and strong, using tea instead of water,and thoroughly amalgamating allthe com pounds,so thatthetaste ofneither the bitter, thesweet,the spirit, nor the element, shall be perceptible one over the other, is the grand secret, only to be acquired by practice. In making hot toddy, or hot punch, you must put in the spirits before the water: in cold punch, grog,

5. Hot Brandy and Rum Punch. (For a party offlfteen.)

Eub the sugar over the lemons until it has absorbed all the yellow part of the shins, then put the sugar into a punch-bowl; add the ingredients well together, pour over them the boiling water, stir well together; add the rum, brandy and nutmeg; mix thoroughly, and the punch will be ready to serve. As we have before said, it is very im portant, in making good punch,that all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated; and, to insure success, the process of mixing must be diligently attended to. Allow a quart for four persons; but this information must be taken cum grano salis;for the capacities of persons for this kind of beverage are generally supposed to vary con siderably. 6. Irish "Whiskey Punch. This is the genuine Irish beverage. It is generally made one-third pure whiskey,two-thirds boiling water,in wbicli the sugar has been dissolved. If lemon punch,the rind is rubbed on the sugar, and a small proportion of juice added before the whiskey is poured in. This'beverage ought always to be made with boiling water, and allowed to concoct and cool for a day or two before it is put on the table. In this way,the materials get more intensely amalgamated than cold water and cold whiskey ever get. As to the beautiful mutual adaptation of cold rum and cold water,that is beyond all praise,being one ofNature's most exquisite achievements. (See"Glas- gov3 Punch,No.29.) * Irish whiskey is not fit to drink until it is three years old. The be.st whiskey for this purpnse is Kenahan's LL whiskey. 7. Cold Whiskey Punch. (For fl party-)

quart of old Jamaica rum -witli two ofFrench hrandy,and put the spirit to the millc, stirring it for a short time; let it stand for an hour, but do not suQcr any one of delicate appetite to see the melange in its present state, as the sight might create a distastefor the punch when perfected. Filter through blotting-paper into bottles; and should you find that the liquid is cloudy, which it should not be, you may clarify it by adding a small portion of isinglass to each bottle. The above receipt will furnish you with half a dozen of punch. The late General Ford, who for many years was the commanding engineer at Dover, koj^t a most hospitable board, and used to make punch on a largo scale, after the following method: He would select three dozen of lemons, the coats of which were smooth, and whose rinds were not too thin; these he wonld peel with a sharp knife into a large earthen vessel, talcing care that none of the rind should be detach ed but that portion in Avliich the cells are placed, contain ing the essential oil; when he had completed the first part of the process, he added two pounds of lump-sugar, and stirred the peel and sugar together with an oar-shaped piece of wood,for nearly half an hour, thereby extracting a greater quantity of the essential oil. Boiling water was next poured into the vessel, and the whole well stirred, until the sugar was completely dissolved. Thelemons were then cut and squeezed,the juice str.ained from the kernels; these were placed in a separate jug, and boiling water poured upon them, the general being aware that the pips were enveloped in a thick mncilagc,full offlavor; liall the 26.

lemoa juice "was now tlirown in; and as soon as the ker nels ^\'Bre free from their transpai-ent coating,their liquor .vas strained and added. The sherbet was now tasted; more acid or more sugar applied as required, and care taken not to render the lemonade too watery. "Rich of the fruit, and plenty of sweetness," was the general's maxim. The sherbet was then measured,and to every three quarts a pint of Cognac brandy and a pint of old Jamaica rum were allotted, the spirit being well stirred as poured in ; bottling immediately followed, and, when completed,the beverage was kept in a cold cellar, or tank, till required. At the general's table I have frequently drunk punch thus made, more than six months old; and found it much improved by time and a cool atmosphere. Make a good bowl of punch, h. la Ford, already de scribed. To every pint of punch add an ounce and a half ofisinglass, dissolved in a quarter ofa pintof water(about half a tumbler full); pour this into the punch whilst quite hot, and then fill your moulds,taking care that they are not disturbed untU the jelly is completely set. Orange, lemon, or cairs-foot jolly, not used at dinner, can be converted into punch jelly for the evening, by fol lowing the above directions, only taking care to omit a portion ofthe acid prescribed in making the sherbet. This preparation is a very agreeable refreshment on a cold.night,but should be used in moderation; the strength ofthe punch is so artfully concealed by its admixture -with the gelatine, that many persons, particularly of the softer sex,have been tempted to partake so plentifully of it as to render them somewhat unfit for waltzing or quadrilling after supper. 27.
