Tom Bullock, esteemed bartender at the St. Louis Country Club, was able to work magic with beverages both alcoholic and not. He became the first African-American to publish a book on drinks, called The Ideal Bartender (1917), which featured an introduction by George Herbert Walker, a devotee of Bullock's and great-grandfather of our current president. In 173 Pre-Prohibition Cocktails: Potations So Good They Scandalized a President (Teddy Roosevelt's penchant for Bullock's juleps tainted his presidential bid), D.J. Frienz, who edited Good Things to Eat As Suggested by Rufus, brings together Bullock's original recipes with turn-of-the-century memorabilia and 20 pages of historical drink facts. ( Apr. 17)
