Well, the title sure didn't come out right.

I thought someone had put Jigger, Beaker and Glass online as well, but now can't find it.

Oh, this is sweet. Thanks! (as if I needed another excuse to have a cocktail night)

Also, the Bimbo Punch actually sounds pretty good.

These drinks all seem very, very strong. I have bookmarked this.

Nice find, but do you think those misused apostrophes ("sour's", "toddy's", etc.) were in the original?

And this site linked to at the bottom of the page is curious.

Bimbo punch needs loaf sugar? Has anyone ever seen loaf sugar?
And Arrack sounds tasty:
NOUN: A strong alcoholic drink of the Middle East and the Far East, usually distilled from fermented palm sap, rice, or molasses.
ETYMOLOGY: Arabic ‘araq, sweat, strong clear liquor made from raisins, from ‘ariqa, to sweat.
I like raisins and just can't be a party to making them sweat. However, if kenko is buying...

The book was written in the mid-1800s, so, you know, you gotta cut him some slack with the obsolete ingredients. (Probably not many people have seen Boker's bitters recently either.)

Anyone ever tried Egg Lemonade? It must be either really wonderful or really horrific.

Cocktail of the week makes my emailbox happy.
