"The Old-Fashioned" by Robert Simonson
No single cocktail is as iconic, beloved or discussed as the Old-Fashioned. Its formula is simple: whiskey, bitters, sugar and ice. But how you combine those ingredients is subject to much debate. "The Old-Fashioned" is a spirited story of the cocktail's birth in the 19th century, the darker days of Prohibition, re-ascension in the '50s and '60s and its renaissance as a contemporary craft cocktail - popularized by Don Draper on "Mad Men." It also features great photographs and recipes, including classic variations, regional twists and contemporary updates from top bartenders around the country.
