Présentation de l'éditeur
WINNER: CLASS AWARDS 2010 FOR BEST DRINKS WRITING COCKTAIL AND SPIRITS HISTORIANS Jared Brown and Anistatia Miller thought they knew about cocktails. The authors of the 1996 book Shaken Not Stirred: A Celebration of the Martini they spent the past 15 years digging through newspapers, books, archives, and distilleries. Then they dug deeper when they wrote Spirituous Journey: A History of Drink, Book One, discovering the true origins of the major spirits categories and the birth of taverns and saloons. They won the 2009 Gourmand World Cook Book Award for Best Drink History in the UK and the 2010 CLASS Award for Best Drink Writing for their efforts. When they got around to writing Spirituous Journey: A History of Drink, Book Two even they were shocked with the facts they uncovered about the origins of many classic cocktails and the people who created them. Think you really know the earliest printed mention of the word cocktail in the English language? You probably don't unless you've read the preface to Spirituous Journey: A History of Drink, Book Two. But Miller and Brown didn't stop there. Want to know what famed 19th-century bartender Harry Johnson had in common with Irving Berlin's song Alexander's Ragtime Band and Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz? Ever wonder who Bloody Mary was and who really named the world's favourite brunch beverage? Who really invented blue drinks and Jelly Shots? Who was the original owner of Harry's New York Bar in Paris? As Gary Regan noted in his foreword to the book: In A Spirituous Journey: A History of Drink, Book Two, we see deeper into the mindset of Brown and Miller than in any of their previous works, and this proves interesting in of itself. They reveal themselves pretty well within the first paragraph of the preface, no less, when Brown notes that a successful miner doesn't pass by a vein of silver in search of gold, and explains himself quite neatly by pointing out that drinks historians are well advised to chase after the information [they] are finding rather than what [they] are not finding. Rather, then, than starting with conclusions and looking for corroborating evidence, this pair of researchers do their jobs the way nature intended. The hard way. With a foreword by cocktailian Gary Regan, Spirituous Journey: A History of Drink, Book Two reminds readers that the world of spirits and drinks is more than just a shake, a stir, or a throw. There's pride in an amazing historical record to be found in everything that happens and in everyone who works behind the bar.
