Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"A classical work."
-H. L. Mencken, early twentieth-century distinguished journalist, critic, and editor

From the story behind the Side Car Cocktail to the secret of perfect Mississippi Planter's Punch, this effervescent collection is a spirited romp through the history and recipes of New Orleans's most famous cocktails.
Concoct exotic beverages such as Pousse Caf�, Vieux Carr� Cocktail, and Absinthe Anisette as you imbibe the lore behind these libations. These colorful stories, including the creation of the Ramos Gin Fizz and the origin of the word cocktail, are stimulating sips of the zest of the Crescent City.
Since its debut 1937, Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix 'Em has brought a twist of Bourbon Street to homes worldwide.

About the Author

A native of California, Stanley Clisby Arthur spent several years as a journalist and served as a war correspondent in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War. Arthur arrived in Louisiana in 1915 and came to view it as his adopted home, dedicating much of his life to documenting its customs, culture, and history. During the Great Depression, Arthur was appointed regional director of the Survey of Federal Archives. This allowed him to delve even more deeply into the history of New Orleans and Louisiana, and he published several more historical and cultural works, including Pelican’s Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix ‘Em, Old Families of Louisiana, and Audubon: An Intimate Life of the American Woodsman. Stanley Clisby Arthur died in 1963 at the age of eighty-eight.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a nice insight on old New Orleans and the impact its bars and barteneders had on the devlopment of some of America's classic cocktails. Most recipes are accopmanied by a bit of history of New Orleans and the orgin of each drink. It does a wonderful job of giving background and insight on the Sazerac, Mint Julep, and Ramos Gin Fizz...all of which are standard cocktails in the Big Easy and have earned their place as "classic cocktails". Imbibers who prefer some of the more modern drinks of our time may be a little confused or diaaspointed with the recipes in this book since they are truly "old school'..many dating back to the turn of the century and pre-prohibition. Nonetheless, the history and colorful stories in this book will surely please anyone who is in love with the "Old South" and the Crescent City!

I grew up on the Gulf Coast and any trip to NOLA was filled with anticipation. This book has some great recipes and cures my homesick blues when I can't get away from the West Coast.
