Imbibe! by David Wondrich is available now. Photo courtesy of

The word means to absorb. I refer to this not commentating about Imbibe Magazine, but David Wondrich’s new book, Imbibe!: From Absinthe Cocktail to Whiskey Smash, a Salute in Stories and Drinks to ”Professor” Jerry Thomas, Pioneer of the American Bar.

The book is perfect for the younger students of the drinking world, giving them a definitive guide to the history of the American cocktail – a prevalent and undying art.

Imbibe! is Wondrich’s homage to the “founder” of the American bar, Jerry Thomas, but it is not solely a history lesson. Wondrich, a contributor to Esquire Magazine, also details hundreds of recipes for a myriad of drink concoctions that only the master mixologist and drink historian could tell.

An early Christmas gift, perhaps?
