Juke Joints, Jazz Clubs, and Juice includes drinks like Jerk-Spiced Bloody Mary, Blackberry-Ginger Bourbon Smash, Cognac, Coffee & Cream, and Orange-Cherry Drop, all inspired by these creative (and often unrecognized) mixmasters.

Juke Joints, Jazz Clubs, and Juice spotlights the creativity, hospitality, and excellence of Black drinking culture, with classic and modern recipes inspired by formulas found in two centuries’ worth of Black cookbooks. From traditional tipples, such as the Absinthe Frappe or the Clover Leaf Cocktail, to new favorites, like the Jerk-Spiced Bloody Mary and the Gin and Juice 3.0, Toni Tipton-Martin shares a variety of recipes that shine a light on her influences, including underheralded early-twentieth-century icons, like Tom Bullock, Julian Anderson, and Atholene Peyton, and modern superstars, such as Snoop Dogg and T-Pain.

Drawing on her expertise, research in historic cookbooks, and personal collection of texts and letters, Toni Tipton-Martin shows how these drinks have evolved over time and shares the stories of how Black mixology came to be—a culmination of generations of practice, skill, intelligence, and taste.

“Based on her vast culinary research, James Beard Award winner Tipton-Martin pens an illuminating and glorious work of history and libations, celebrating Black mixologists and the drinks they created. Each offering includes an informative and engaging headnote that places the beverage in its context and milieu.
