I love vintage recipes and this is a total gem. The writing is quirky and funny and the illustrations are charming. The quality isn't amazing, it's clearly just photocopied but I don't care, it's worth it that this book lives on in whatever format it can.

A literal reprint (or copy) of the original text and images from 1930. Written in a very funny and entertaining way, it gives insight in to life during prohibition - and it's fascinating. The facts that drinks were pared down to simple combinations due to the limited availability of spirits/non-alcoholic spirits, and that some strong flavors were required to cover up the taste of the bootleg booze hadn't occurred to me until reading this book. Fun descriptions, quips, and illustrations!

I own many of the Bolton cocktail 'how-to' facsimiles from this era. This one is a total scream. See "What'll You Have" or "Jerry Thomas' Bartender" for more actual recipes; stick to this one for the comedy and 'advice'. From the amusing typos, colorful descriptions, and less than appetizing finger sandwiches (You mean faux chicken liver pate on rye doesn't sound good right before you drink 3 quarts of port punch?) this title is a treasure. Some of the drinks recipes from this era will make your liver ache merely reading about them. But hey, bathtub gin is an acquired taste. Lots of fun hangover cures and just how to behave around your guests. If you're off to the theatrre (sic) it's important to know what drinks to prepare to aid your good time. Since I like gin and whisky, I managed to find several concoctions that were down right yummy. But if you don't drink gin, whisky or brandy -- the popular alcohol of the day-- you may not find much here other than laughs.
