The authentic vintage cocktail has made a comeback. However, this book does not repeat the timeworn cocktails of old, which you can find anywhere. Instead, historian, expert and drink aficionado Dr. Cocktail has hand-picked 80 drinks rarely made today, all of which deserve revival. Some are from the nineteenth century, some from the Prohibition era and some from just after World War II as the golden age of the cocktail was waning. All are retrieved from extremely uncommon sources. In fact, some of these recipes were found carefully penned into old cocktail manuals or on scraps of paper and may have never been published before. Vintage Cocktails and Spirits pays homage to the great bartender of the past and the beverages they created, lost in time, but still grand and full of potential. If you have half the fun looking at this book and trying these recipes as the author did putting them together, a great party is sure to ensue.

Ted Haigh, a.k.a. Dr Cocktail, earns his living as a graphic designer in the Hollywood movie industry. Although he has been diligently researching cocktails since the eighties, his moonlighting as a cocktail historian became public in 1995, when he hosted the America Online spirits boards. In the intervening years, he has been quoted and referenced by the New York Times, Esquire and the Malt Advocate as well as various books and other media. He is a partner in Cocktail DB.com, an encyclopaedic database of cocktail knowledge.
