Format: Paperback
This book was published after Prohibition to ensure folks knew how to mix a good drink now that they had been out of practice for so long. Its most interesting features are as a historical document showing both a rose-tinted view of how the drinking culture was before Prohibition and the intent to shape the drinking culture going forward.

It is divided into three major sections. The first includes a florid history of bourbon, rye, and the julep. The second includes a history of the Frankfort Distillery. The third is a number of classic cocktails, many of which I have seen a version of since.

The recipe book allows Cobb to show off his renowned wit. For example, he has a recipe for the daiquiri which it should be noted is in its proper lime green form, not the corn syrupy red variety they try to trick you with at brass and fern establishments. He says “The third edition of this particular series should be served with a wheelchair.”
