As a writer, I published four books in four very niche topic categories. The beautiful thing about all of them is that I put them together by myself; from the covers, layouts, and typography, to the photography. Enjoy reading the product I put out if you're interested in the subject matter, or learn from me how to make a book of your own. Contact me for consultation.

June 19, 2021
Hardcover
/ Paperback / Kindle

Imagine serving drinks to high-value clientele such as President “Teddy” Roosevelt, the United States Secretary of State, author Mark Twain, and the Princes of Belgium and Norway. That was Julian Anderson’s life at the Montana Club, a private club owned and frequented by Helena, Montana’s fifty richest men. After sixty years of service to the club, Julian retired in 1953. He passed away nine years later, on December 20, 1962, at the age of 102.

In 1919, Julian was the second African-American to publish a pre-Prohibition cocktail recipe book, Julian’s Recipes, behind his contemporary Tom Bullock of St. Louis. With a renaissance happening as of late in the world of cocktails, bartenders are picking back up on the intricacies of mixology to make higher-quality drinks. Take this opportunity to revisit 60 classic recipes that have become new again in the age of the digital revolution. This new definitive Centennial Edition features corrections and tasting notes from the editor Marc Antomattei.

Now with the knowledge of a skillful master bestowed to us, there’s no shortage of recipes one can concoct.
