Both supreme gentility and extraordinary fun characterized London's high society in the 1930s. When "The Savoy Cocktail Book" was first published, it not only enriched the style of the times--it became part of it. Into the next millennium, The Savoy Hotel continues to evoke a world of elegance and style, and this updated edition features several new cocktails including the Millennium Cocktail, created by Peter Dorelli, the former Savoy head barman. This compendium attempts to cover everything about drinks and drinking, especially the art of cocktail creation, presentation, and consumption. With over 750 classic cocktail recipes, "The Savoy Cocktail Book" allows you to recreate the tradition of sophisticated soirees at The Savoy time and time again. Harry Craddock left America during Prohibition to work as a cocktail barman for The American Bar at London's Savoy Hotel. Published in the wake of Prohibition, his "Savoy Cocktail Book" captures the spirit of the times with its historic recipes and vibrant illustrations. Craddock has been credited with popularizing many drinks and the invention of a number of classic cocktails, such as the White Lady and Corpse Reviver #2."
