Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chardonnay and Chambord

    • Jane on February 08, 2024

      I liked this on first sip but became rather bored by it and decided I would rather drink a straight Chardonnay. It was a bit sweet for me. I'll maybe try it with crème de mure (blackberry) or crème de cassis (blackcurrant) which may be a bit less sweet. Note there is a mistake in the quantity of wine - it should be 0.75 cup not 1.5 cups (which would be a rather large cocktail being half a bottle of wine!).

  • Cucumber Collins

    • Jane on February 08, 2024

      This was a lovely long cocktail. I can see this becoming a summer favorite. I enjoy the Hendricks/cucumber combination and the St. Germaine adds a nice floral note.

Publishers Text

Discover the fascinating history of Black mixology and its enduring influence on American cocktail culture through 70 rediscovered, modernized, or celebrated recipes, by the James Beard Award–winning author of Jubilee.

Juke Joints, Jazz Clubs, and Juice spotlights the creativity, hospitality, and excellence of Black drinking culture, with classic and modern recipes inspired by formulas found in two centuries’ worth of Black cookbooks. From traditional tipples, such as the Absinthe Frappe or the Clover Leaf Cocktail, to new favorites, like the Jerk-Spiced Bloody Mary and the Gin and Juice 3.0, Toni Tipton-Martin shares a variety of recipes that shine a light on her influences, including underheralded early-twentieth-century icons, like Tom Bullock, Julian Anderson, and Atholene Peyton, and modern superstars, such as Snoop Dogg and T-Pain.

Drawing on her expertise and research in historic and rare texts, Toni Tipton-Martin shows how these drinks have evolved over time and shares the stories of how Black mixology came to be—a culmination of generations of practice, skill, intelligence, and taste.
