"America, as we know it, was born in a bar." -- Christine Sismondo
Martinis may be better dry, but history is better wet. America Walks into a Bar by Christine Sismondo delivers. Since the days of the Mayflower, American bars have given birth to some of the nation's most important social and political movements. With its fast-paced narrative and colorful characters, this fascinating new book will have you asking your bartender for another.
Be like America's revolutionaries and complement your thinking with some drinking. Americans first invented mixed drinks, and in William Yeoward's American Bar, the famed crystal designer provides recipes for delicious cocktails like the Smoked Old-Fashioned, the Moonwalk, and the Hanky Panky.
Raise your glass and celebrate America's bars. We've got two books each for ten zesty drinkers!
