Revue de presse
This recipe collection offers a wide-ranging compendium of historic serves. Some of them sippers might recognise today; others might otherwise have been lost to the sands of time. But for the amateur cocktail sleuth, all provide a fascinating picture of the past. --Sipsmith London, October 2017

A fantastic little tome and drinker's companion that might otherwise have languished in obscurity . . . The experience of flipping through The Cocktail Book the turn-of-the-century parlance of the original recipes unchanged is akin to discovering a sort of drinker's time capsule. --The Hedonist, October 2017

It's not often we Gin Kinners see products about gin that we want even more than gin itself but the British Library has just cracked it . . . Drinking has never been so cerebral! We absolutely love it. --The Gin Kin, October 2017
Présentation de l'éditeur
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. The Cocktail Book was published at the precise time that the modern cocktail found true success, and is both a connoisseur's curiosity and a practical guide to mixing classic drinks at home.
