Another of Reaktion's Edible books.

Another of Reaktion's Edible books. This one felt a little less focused than some of them, but overall still a fairly fun (if very, very light) read with some great pictures.

Traveling back to the nineteenth century, Carlin explains that, though England and the American colonies were enjoying rum punch years earlier, the true cocktail was born in America in 1806.

Gimlet, negroni, manhattan, Long Island ice tea, flirtini, hurricane, screwdriver—cocktails have come a long way from their first incarnation in the seventeenth century, when rum punch was everyone’s go-to drink. Originally made of five ingredients, including a spirit, sugar, and spices, “cocktail” now refers to any drink made of liquor and a mixer. In this book, Joseph M. Carlin uncovers how many of our favorite cocktails were invented and describes how this most American of alcoholic beverages—but most international of drinks—came to influence society around the world. Traveling back to the nineteenth century, Carlin explains that, though England and the American colonies were enjoying rum punch years earlier, the true cocktail was born in America in 1806. Soon after mechanically harvested ice became widely available, Americans were sipping martinis and mint juleps in bars, saloons, and taprooms, and it didn’t take long for these tasty concoctions to spill over into all corners of the globe. The result, Carlin reveals, was the birth of a number of cocktail spinoffs—cocktail parties, cocktail dresses, cocktail wieners, cocktail napkins, and the Molotov cocktail, to name just a few. Featuring many tempting recipes, Cocktail: A Global History is a book to peruse with a mimosa in the morning and a martini at night.

This is a great, basic, concise introduction to cocktails. I would have liked more detail about the history of cocktails and different cocktails. It seemed really short in the eBook version like you could put it in a 50-page book. Lots of stuff I didn't know.

I have always been facinated by the history of drinks and this book serves as a difinitive history of spirits and drinks. You'll been fascinated and surprised by some of the things you'll learn. A must read for any serious mixologist.

You're bound to learn a lot and have tales to tell at your next cocktail party.
