What did Lincoln drink? Whatever it was, if he wanted to make it himself, he'd have used A Bon Vivant's Companion. Originally published in 1862, this volume is a reproduction of the first cocktail book every made. Before that, everyone had to trust a bartender, or worse, their memory. And as you know, if you like a drink, you're probably going to have a few, drastically impairing your ability to remember what's in it. All the tasty, original, 1800s-era elixirs are present here, and now you can enjoy them almost 150 years later.
