In this fun, unexpected, and informative guide, New York Times spirits columnist Robert Simonson explores the history of the Old-Fashioned: its birth as the "ur-cocktail" in the late nineteenth century, ascension in the 1950s and 1960s (as portrayed and repopularized by Don Draper on Mad Men), and renaissance as the star of the contemporary craft cocktail movement.
