Historic Cocktails with David Wondrich

So you want to mix up some historical cocktails this holiday, but have no idea where to start?

Luckily, you can simply watch this video featuring the acclaimed cocktail historian, David Wondrich, make four historic cocktails from Jerry's Thomas' book, How to Make Cocktails: Or, the Bon-Vivant's Companion (available to download for free on Google play!!)  Mr. Wondrich teaches us how to make a Brandy Crusta, a Sherry Cobbler, Egg Nogg, and the awe-inspiring Blue Blazer.

Ever since we read Imbibe, we've been dying to see the Blue Blazer put into action.  It is a cocktail we will not try at home, as we are not interested in burning the house down... Thankfully, we can watch the skilled master perform this gorgeous lost art without any risk of burning our selves.
