“As in this age of progress, most things are raised to the position of a science, we see no reason why Bacchanology (if the term please our readers) should not hold a respectable place, and be entitled to its due mead of praise; so, by way of introduction, we have ventured to take a cursory glance at the customs which have been attached to drinking from the earliest periods to the present time...” — Henry Porter and George Edwin Roberts, 1863 Cups and Their Customs, originally published in 1863, is a tantalizing collection of drinking lore and legend with several dozen recipes for cups and other tasty beverages as they were served in the mid-nineteenth century. It is part of the Classic Cocktail Guides and Retro Bartender Books series published by Kalevala Books.
