Here are authentic recipes for over 100 classics from the golden age of libation. Includes quotes, anecdotes and cocktail histories from the era. Sidebars offer both practical advice (such as pointers for throwing a swank cocktail party) and fascinating bits of cocktail lore. Readers learn what Frank Sinatra wrote on invitations to Rat Pack parties (”Black Tie and Sunglasses Required”), which movie offers a glimpse of the Brown Derby’s original bar (”Mildred Pierce”), and what Cab Calloway may have been drinking the night he sang “hi-de-ho” in the midst of a song (a Harlem cocktail, the signature drink of The Cotton Club). “The glamour of the cocktail comes to life in this entertaining book.” Lavishly illustrated with full-color vintage art.
