New and Exciting Drinks: A Guide for Amateur Bartenders, 1973, John D’Amata: This slim volume is a Hearthstone Book, published by Carlton Press, Inc., New York. Hard cover book with dust jacket and 47 pages. Dust jacket, as you can see, has lots of little dings. Book is in as-if-new condition.
This book has chapters on Exotic Drinks, Cocktail and Mixed Drinks, Dinner Drinks, another chapter on Exotic Drinks, and Punches. But the unusual chapter is the one on Malt Duck Drinks. After an introduction singing the praises of Malt Duck (he calls it “the Water of Life,”) D’Amata provides recipes for mixed drinks made with Malt Duck, drinks like Angel’s Kiss, many daiquiris, Grasshopper, Juleps, Manhattans, Martinis, and more. Even a Zombie.
No other copies of this bartender’s book are available on the Internet. Rare Book.
