Important to Bartenders.

The large and constantly increasing popularity of Mixed Drinks makes it advisable to place before the members of this Association, in clear and concise form, the best and newest recipes in use.

In order that the members might have the benefit of the experience, not of one or two, but of all the leading saloons, cafes, restaurants and clubs of this city, we have spent much time and labor in collecting, in this Guide,, all information of value bearing on this important subject.

Of all those who have profited by similar information obtained through our Association, many have derived very gratifying results and a decided gain in their business from the time of adopting our suggestions.

If the within instructions are strictly adhered to, success will necessarily follow. The American people will have the best, and you can be successful only by giving them the best. It is hardly necessary to state that, of ail mixed drinks, none are so universally popular as the cocktails. Be sure to use the best material and go strictly according to instructions contained in the Guide.

(Use large bar glass. )

2 dashes of lemon juice
2 dashes of lime juice.
Water to dissolve the above.

Bourbon Fruit Tea Punch via Bon Appétit [Drink]

May 30th, 2020 Comments off
I love punches and sometimes make a Dickens Gin Punch at Christmastime. The inclusion of my favorite tipple, bourbon, in this one makes me want to try it all the more. — Douglas
 
This recipe is from Vivek Surti of Tailor in Nashville, No. 7 on our Hot Ten list for 2019. His spiked fruit tea is intentionally not too boozy, but you can also leave the bourbon out. “When I was growing up here,” the Nashville native says, “restaurants had three drinks: water, sweet tea, and fruit tea. Our welcome cocktail is an homage to the latter, as well as to punch’s Indian heritage. (Punch comes from the Hindi word paanch, which means ‘five’ since originally there were only five ingredients.) I love fruit tea and wanted to bring it back—with bourbon.”
