Excerpt from How to Mix Drinks, or the Bon-Vivant's Companion: Containing Clear and Reliable Directions for Mixing All the Beverages Used in the United States, Together With the Most Popular British, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish Recipes Embracing Punches, Juleps, Cobblers, Etc;, Etc;, Etc;, In Endles Bank of England, a small drinking saloon that had been set up by a peripatetic American, at the door of which was placed a board covered with the unique titles of the American mixed drinks supposed to be pre pared within that limited establishment. The Connecticut eye-open ers and Alabama fog-cutters, together with the lightning-smashes and the thunderbolt-cocktails, created a profound sensation in the crowd assembled to peruse the N ectarian bill of fare, if they did not produce custom. It struck us, then, that a list of all the social drinks - the composite beverages, if we may call them so - of America, would really be one of the curiosities of jovial literature; and that if it was combined with a catalogue of the mixtures common to other nations, and made practically useful by the addition of a concise, description of the various processes for brewing each, it would be a blessing to mankind. There would be no excuse for imbibing, with Such a book at hand, the villainous compounds of bar-keeping Goths and Vandals, who know no more of the amenities of boa vivant existence than a Hot tontot can know of the bouquet of champagne. There's philosophy, says Father Tom in the drama, even in a jug of punch. We claim the credit of philosophy teaching by example, then, to no ordinary extent in the composition of this volume; for our index exhibits the title of eighty-six different kinds of punches, together with a universe of cobblers, juleps, bitters, cups, slings, shrubs, so, each and all of which the reader is carefully educated how to concoct in the choicest manner. For the perfection of this education, the name, alone, of Jerry Thomas is a sufficient guarantee. He has travelled Europe and America in search of all that is recondite in this branch of the Spirit art. He has been the Jupiter Olympus of the bar at the Metropolitan Hotel in this city. He was the presiding deity at the Planter's House, St. Louis. He has been the proprietor of one of the most récherché saloons in New Orleans as well as in New York. His very name is synonymous 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 composition of several valuable punches, and among them we may particularize the celebrated N uremburgh, and the equally famous Philadelphia Fish House punch. The rest we owe to the inspiration of Jerry Thomas Mself, and as he is as inexorable as the Medea and Persians in his principle that no excellent drink can be made out of any thing but excellent materials, we conceive 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.
