I've never bought a bottle of Old Mr. Boston liquor in my life but it doesn't matter. Instead of Old Mr. Boston Gin, it's fine to use Beefeaters. Same on all the other booze types.
The point is, if you want to know how to make a Martini, or a Manhattan, or even an Orange Blossom (my favorite!), Old Mr. Boston is there to tell you precisely and simply how to make that happen. There are hundreds of old standby cocktails and highballs in here.
Orange Blossom Cocktail (page 69)
1 oz. Old Mr. Boston Dry Gin
1 oz. Orange Juice
1/4 Teaspoon Powdered Sugar
"Shake well with cracked ice and strain into 3 oz. cocktail glass."
You'll find that the Avant-garde drinks aren't in here, at least not in my 1965 edition, because such drinks had not yet been invented when this handy little work was published... drinks like Chili's "El Presidente Frozen Margarita". You'll need something newer for that -- I print such modern cocktail recipes from the internet and stick them inside my Old Mr. Boston guide, so that in an alcoholic emergency, I'm covered. When my daughter turned 21 years old, I even found a great eggnog recipe in here (there are several) to celebrate the occasion.
I no longer drink alcoholic beverages (danged heart trouble, probably caused, in part, by excessive alcohol imbibing and swilling!) but I'm going to hang on to this great little resource book -- most of my friends still love to pour them down, especially at my expense!
My edition has 150 pages, about 7-10 recipes per page, with very easy-to-follow instructions -- This book is a life-saver during the holidays. Happy Mixology!!!
