Everything you ever need to know about choosing and mixing drinks is right here in this rare and highly collectible volume. Written by a legendary mixologist, it's the ultimate bartender's book, bursting with 750 recipes. Consisting mostly of cocktails, it comprises nonalcoholic drinks as well as sours, toddies, flips, egg nogs, slings, fizzes, coolers, rickeys, juleps, punches, and a myriad of other delectable refreshments. Extensive coverage of wines introduces the products of Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Champagne, as well as Rhine wines, port, and sherry.
This special edition is richly illustrated with unique color images from the original 1930 publication — dozens of period drawings that imbue the book with a lively Jazz Age spirit. A splendid gift for bartenders and housewarming parties, it's also a fine and comprehensive addition to home bars and libraries.
