1888 Bartender's Manual by Theodore Proulx (Revised Edition)


This little work is no thing more nor less than a n e xplana tion of the mode rn way of mixing drinks in firs t-class s t yle only. It does not contain one hundred toasts, suitable to all occasions, nor does it include a hundred recipes for the manufacture of different liquors, as do some works of the kind, be cause any such matter is foreign to the subj ect, and can be of no possible account to the bartender in his avoca tion. A comp ounder of drinks behind the bar is not supposed to manufacture his own liquors in the cella r of his employer's establishment. A first-class bartende r belong s to a fi rst-class bar, and bars of that kind are accustomed to purchase their stock from the most responsible wholesale and importing houses, and where the ages of their liquors, which invariably run from three to ten years, is safely g uaranteed. It is to the bartenders of this class of houses only that I r efer this work. THEO. PROULX. (Pronou nced P r ew.)
