Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails: From the Alamagoozlum Cocktail to the Zombie: 80 Rediscovered Recipes and the Stories Behind Them

by

The "authentic" vintage cocktail has made a comeback. This book does not repeat the timeworn cocktails of old. While old-fashioneds, martinis, rusty nails, margaritas, and negronis are all great drinksuand this book includes the most authentic recipesuyou can find them anywhere. Here, historian, expert, and drink aficionado Dr. Cocktail has hand-picked 80 drinks rarely made today, and all of them 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 drinks were found carefully penned into old cocktail manuals or on scraps of paper and may never have been published. They are true treasures, indeed. "Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails" pays homage to the great bartenders 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. Hide synopsis
