Old Man Drinks: The Book

Old-Man-Drinks.jpgWe've said it before, and we'll say it again - old people may smell like mothballs and regret, but they know how to drink right. Want to know why? Because you'd never catch your grandfather - and most likely grandmother, for that matter - drinking a Flirtini (or any -tini other than a martini). Our older generation knows the value of a drink that makes you grimace juuust a little bit - and chasing that drink down with a pickled egg.

That's why we're excited about Old Man Drinks: Recipes, Advice, and Barstool Wisdom. It's chock full of quotes and wisdom from semi-ancient barflies, and includes a multitude of cocktail recipes that need to start rubbing elbows with Cosmopolitans on drink lists.

Here you'll find histories and recipes for Old-Fashioneds, Sidecars, Clover Clubs, Rusty Nails, Hot Toddys, Monte Carlos, and more than 60 other vintage cocktails. Accompanying the text are evocative black-and-white photographs of real old men enjoying their beverages of choice and dispensing such timeless words of wisdom as "I'm gonna die some day, so I may as well drink" and "I've taken an involuntary vow of celibacy."
