Synopsis: Over 100 authentic, timeless cocktail recipes. This comprehensive, nostalgia-rich guide to the famous cocktails of yesteryear is complete with an entertaining and informative history of each drink.

From the Inside Flap: "Miss Morris, I'm perfectly capable of fixing my own breakfast. As a matter of fact, I had a peanut butter sandwich and two whisky sours."

Tom Ewell as Richard Sherman in THE SEVEN-YEAR ITCH In this delightful volume, a comprehensive roster of sublime drinks evokes a time when the drinking of cocktails was de rigueur-and more was definitely merrier. Colorfully written and rendered, "Vintage Cocktails: Authentic Recipes and Illustrations from 1920-1960" celebrates the glory and glamour of cocktails-their ascension during Prohibition and continued popularity through the pre- and post-World War II era and beyond. Presented are a wealth of classic recipes-from the iconoclastic Martini, to the original Daiquiri (not frozen, please!), and the knock-your-socks-off Zombie-plus amusing anecdotes about their origins. Both recipes and anecdotes provide a colorful backdrop with which to understand today's cocktail craze. The lively text, accompanied by beautiful vintage liquor advertisements, posters, and labels, also includes tips for making the perfect cocktail, useful drink making terms and famous lines from movies of the era. The glamour of the cocktail-both in its past celebrity and newfound, well-deserved popularity-comes to life in this eminently entertaining book. Bottoms up!
