    The Cocktail Book

    The Cocktail Book , first published in 1900, is the earliest book devoted purely to the art of the cocktail. For thirty years including the prohibition, it was a staple of well-stocked bars, although originals are now extremely rare. This collection, in a beautiful new edition, allows a modern audience to rediscover the joy of classic cocktails, with early recipes for the Whisky Sour, Mint Julep, Manhattan, and many more.

    Features recipes for classic cocktails and their more experimental variations – includes the Manhattan, Tom Collins and an early recipe for eggnog, among others
