PEEFACE.

In all agns of tho 'w orld, and in all countries, men have in dulged in"so cial drinks." Xhey Lave al ways possess ed themselves ofsome popu lar beverage apart from water and those of the breakfast and tea table. Whether it is judicious that m a n k i n d should con

flUl"

tinue to indulge in such things, or whether it would be wiser to abstain from all enjoyments of that chai-acter, it is not our province to decide. We leave that question to the moral philosopher. We simply contend that a relish for "social drinks" is universal; that those drinks o.xist in greater variety in the United States than in any other country in tho ■world; and that he, therefore, ■who proposes to impart to these drinks not only the most palatable but the most wholesome characteristics of which they may be made susceptible, is a genuine public benefactor. That is exactly our object in introducing this little volume to the public. We do not propose to persuade any man to drink, for instance, a punch, or a julep, or a cocktail, who has never happened to make the acquaint ance of those refreshing articles under circnmstances calc\ilated to induce more intimate relations; but we do propose to instruct those whose '• in timate relations" in question render them somewhat fastidious, in the daintiest fashions thereunto pertaining. - We very well remember seeing one day in Uondon, in the rear of the

■* PREFACE, Bank of England, a small drinking saloon that liad boon set np "by a peripatetic American, at the door of wliicli was placed a board covered with the unique titles of the American raised drinks supposed to be pre pared w ithin that limited establishment. The " Connecticut eye-open ers and " Alabama fog-cutters," together with the "lightning-smaslies" and the 'thunderbolt-cocktails," created a piofonnd sensation in the crowd assembled to peruse the Xectarian bill of fare, if they did not produce custom. It struck us, then, that a list of all the social drinks tiie composite beverages, if we may call them so—of America, would really bo one of the curiosities of jovial literature; and that if it was combined witli a catalogue of the mi.stures common to other nations, and made practically useful by the addition of a concise description of the various processes for " brewing" each, it would bo a " blessing to mankind." Tliere would be no excuse for imbibing, ndth such a book at hand, the "viUainous compounds" of bar-keeping Goths end Vandals, who know no more of the amenities of hon vivant existence than a Hot tentot c.an know of the houquet of champa<>-ne. "There's philosophy," says Father Tomln the drc,ria, "even in a jug of punch." IVe claim tlie credit of "philosopiiy teachir.g by example," then, to no ordinary extent in the composition of tiiis volume; for our inde.x e.xhibits tlie title of eighty-six different kinds cf punches, togotlior with a universe of cobblers, juleps, bitters, cups, slir.gg, shrubs, Ac., each and all of which the reader is carefully educated how to conccct in the choicest manner. For tho perfection of tlus education, the name, alone, of Jirry Thomas is a sulficient guarantee. Ue has travelled Europe and .Vmcrica in search of all that is recondite in this hranch of the spirit art. He has been the Jupiter Olympus of the bar at the Metropolitan Hotel In this city. lie was the presiding deity at the Planter's House, St. Louis. lie iias been tlie proprietor of one of tho most recherche saloons in Xew Orleans as well as in Mew York. His very name is synonymous in the lexicon of mixed drinks, with all that is raro and original. To tlie " Wine Press," edited by F. S. Cozzens, Esq., we are indebted for the composition of several valuable punches, and among them we may particularize the celebrated "Kureraburgli," and the equally famous "Pliilndeipliia Fish House" punch. The rest we owe to the inspiration of Jerry Thomas himself, and as lie is as inexorable as the Medes and rcrsians in his principle that no excellent drink can be made out of any tJjing but excellent materia s, wo coiiceivo tliat vte are safe in assert ing tJiat wJjatever may be prepared after ids instructions will he able to speak eloquently for itself '"Good wine needs no bush," Sliakospcara talU us and over one of Jerry's mixtures eulogy is quite as redundant.

1. PUNCH.

To make punch of any sort in perfection, the ambrosial 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 mixture sweet and strong, using tea instead of water,and thoroughly amalgamating all the com pounds,so that the taste ofneither the bitter, the sweet,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, &c., the other way. The precise portions of spirit and water, or even of the acidity and sweetness,can have no general rule, as scarcely two persons make punch alike. »

As wc have before said, it is very iin- portant, m making good punch, that all the mgredients are thoroughly incorporated; and, to insure success, the process of mixing must be diligently attended tb.

PUNCH A la FOED. 21 (jnnrt of old Jamaica rum with tw^o ofFrench hrandy, and put the spirit to the milk, stirring it for a short time; let it stand for an hour, but do not suffer 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 ptmch. Almanac.) The late General Ford, who for many years was the commandmg engineer at Dover, kept a most hospitable board, and used to make punch on a large 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 would peel with a sharp knife into a large earthen vessel, taldng care that none of the rind should be detach ed but that portion in which 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 stixaincd 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 mucilage,full offlavor; half the 26.

lemon juice was now thrown in ; and as soon as the ker nels were free from their transparent coating, their liqnoi ffas strained and added. The sherbet was now tasted; more acid or more sugar applied as required, and.care taken not to render the leinonade 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 si.x months old; and found it much inqiroved by time and a cool atmosjihere. 27. Pnncli Jelly. ISIake- a good bowl of punch, i la Ford, already (lo seibed. To every pint of punch add an ounce and a half ofisinglass, dissolved in a quarter ofa pint of 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 until the jelly is completely set. Orange, lemon, or calfs-foot jelly, 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 Jirescribcd in making the sherbet. This preparation is a very agreeable refreshment on a cold uight,'but should be'used in moderation; the strength ofthe punch is so .artfully concealed by its .admixture with the gelaiine, that many persons, particularly of the softer sex,have been tempted to partake so plentifully of it as to render them somewhat unlit for waltzing or quad rilling after supf)er.
