Cocktail Library Classic,
This review is from: Let's Bring Back: The Cocktail Edition: A Compendium of Impish, Romantic, Amusing, and Occasionally Appalling Potations from Bygone Eras (Hardcover)
Let's Bring Back; The Cocktail Edition is the handsome new edition to the Let's Bring Back series. It is a wonderful book that is both entertaining and useful behind the bar. Filled with amusing recipes that have gone lost over the years, Ms. Blume brings them back triumphantly, with hilarious anecdotes, whimsical illustrations, and crafty applications for modern life. Quotes from historically epic imbibers, bemusing historical expressions, and tales of cocktail trends good and bad fill the pages of this book, inspiring you, said bartender, to brake out the shaker. Necessary in one's personal cocktail library, and a perfect hostess gift for any occasion.
