"Discover the fascinating, unexplored history of Black mixology and its enduring influence on cocktail and drinking culture through rediscovered recipes, from the James Beard Award-winning author of Jubilee. Toni Tipton-Martin's volume on Black culinary history celebrates the lore and people behind our favorite drinks. With cocktail recipes such as the Jerk-Spiced Bloody Mary, the Absinthe Frappe, and the Clover Leaf Cocktail, Juke Joints, Jazz Clubs, and Juice illustrates the essential influence that Black Americans have had on modern mixology. Drawing on her expertise and research in historic and rare cookbooks stretching back over a century, Toni shows us how these drinks-from historic sources as well as modern interpretations of centuries-old classics-showcase excellence in Black hospitality through the ages and dispels the long held stereotype that Black cooks have all had magic hands. It's a stereotype that reduces Black cooking to some kind of abstract instinct, instead of what it really is: the years and generations of practice, building skills, intelligence and competence. Juke Joints, Jazz Clubs, and Juice paints a vivid portrait not only of the past but also of today's Black mixologists, winemakers, distillers, and producers who make up the diverse array of talent in the cocktail community. Through stunning photography and authoritative voices, like Toni's protégé Tiffanie Barriere who's a renowned Atlanta-based mixologist and drinks writer, this book takes us on a journey through Black mixology and demonstrate its modern impact on today's drinking culture"-- Provided by publisher.
