My boyfriend loved it!

Writing in 2012, the one I received is bound well, nice paper, well laid out and overall is a step above most books these days.

I highly recommend the book along with the Boston Museum of Fine Art hand tooled martini shaker. (on web) Take yourself back to the thirties with a couple of cool ones. Great drinks and the illustrations will suit the serious vintage buff. Fun to look at even if you are not drinking.....even better when you are.

This is a classic for a reason, good recipes and well written. There are hundreds of bartending books out there, competing for space in your shelf or on the coffee table - for myself, this one and Colin Field's Ritz book are the go to books and they look quite nice as well. There is another review in here slamming the Savoy book on the font used or something like that, it isn't very clear. Writing in 2012, the one I received is bound well, nice paper, well laid out and overall is a step above most books these days. Is it comparable to productions from Easton press or the Folio Society? No, but so what. This is a book meant to be used and spilled on.

The Savoy guide has for a long time been seen as the end-all be-all of cocktail books. The plethora of classic recipes and witty quips the pepper the pages make this a favorite of cocktail aficionados everywhere. There are only two warnings I have about this book: 1. Many of the recipes refer to either out of production ingredients or ingredients whose recipes have changed. Therefore one should take caution when trying to make the cocktails using the exact recipes. 2. For one newly initiated into the cocktail world, this book gives no real introduction into the proper techniques and principles behind making cocktails.

Great recipes! I'm whipping up a new cocktail every week for our Downton Abbey viewing crowd. The illustrations are lovely.

I bought this book to share with my adult children over Thanksgiving 2010. We tried a number of the cocktails that we had heard about from older family members or from old movies... and they were fabulous! So many different ingredients to explore with easy instructions to follow. This book is very complete from an era gone bye... great way to bring that era into the 21st Century.

There's not much more to say. It has good recipes and is a very well put together book. Not going to have every cocktail you ever heard of, but it has all the ones you really need to know.

What a tomb of information! This book is a must have for anyone serious about cocktails. Milk punch, blue blazers, mules, the list goes on. We have been digging new cocktails out of the earth for decades, this book shows how truely rich the vein was at the turn of the century.
