    Default ancient cocktails

    I remember reading, maybe a year ago, about somebody with
    a drink blog, who had one of the first cocktail recipe books ever
    written, around 1880. He was going through it, one per day,
    and reviewing each one.

    Anybody know who that might be, which Web site?

    I do not know a url for the site that interests you. However I do know
    of sources for reprints of old drink books as well as for bitters and
    some spirits used in the 1800s and now somewhat difficult to find.

    There are several cocktail book reprints from the late 1800s. One of
    the most famous is by Jerry Thomas, but a source I know is now out of
    stock of the reprint. The site
    http://www.cocktailkingdom.com/ has several reprints and a huge
    collection of bitters. The site http://www.drinkupny.com has many
    reprints of old books , many bitters, and many spirits used in the
    late 1800s and early 1900s that now are difficult to find in many
    places including high quality absinthe, Old Tom Gin, Creme Yvette,
    etc.
