The cocktail is as old as the nation that invented it, yet until this entertaining and authoritative account, its story had never been fully told. This volume traces the evolution of American drink from the anything-goes concoctions of the colonial era to the frozen margarita, spiking the meticulously researched narrative with arresting details, odd facts, and colorful figures.
Includes more than 100 recipesÐhalf of them new for this editionÐfor both classics and innovations.
A "dry" martini refers to a drink that's made with a lower than usual proportion of vermouth to gin (or vodka.) A "dirty" martini is a drink that has olive juice mixed in.
