From pre–Civil War bartending to the night clubs of the 1940s, these bar books document the trends and mores of their respective eras. Beginning with the first known recipe book compiled for those seeking to serve sophisticated beverages, through the birth of many of the 21st century's drink standards and the tales of those who consumed them, these drink guides provide an insider's glimpse into the excess and splendor of the pre- and post-Prohibition eras.
A famous oasis after the ravages of Prohibition, the Stork Club was the place for celebrities to see and be seen. This bar book offers a historical glimpse into the high life in New York City at this legendary spot and who was drinking which concoctions. Penned by a legendary wit and bon vivant, this book contains recipes, humor, and stories about the rich and famous who frequented this elegant club, and sly essays on such subjects as the mint julep and the zombie.
