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.
