Synonymous with style, elegance and sophistication, the Savoy is unsurprisingly also the birthplace of some of the most famous cocktails in the world. During the 1920s and '30s, prohibition-dodging Americans visiting London for tea-dances and "mixed drinks" (cocktails), made the bar at the Savoy their home. Here they were entertained by legendary American barman Harry Craddock, inventor of the White Lady and populariser of the Dry Martini. Originally published in 1930, the Savoy Cocktail Book features 750 of Harry's most popular recipes. It is a fascinating record of the cocktails that set London alight at the time - and which are just as popular today. Taking you from Slings to Smashes, Fizzes to Flips, and featuring art deco illustrations, this book is the perfect gift for any budding mixologist or fan of 1930s-style decadence and sophistication. Updated with a new introduction and recipes from The Savoy.

Review:

During prohibition, liquor-deprived Americans would hop across the Atlantic for glamorous tea dances and cocktails in London. The place to b eseen drinking "mixed drinks", as cocktails were known during the decadent 1920s and 1930s, was the American Bar at the Savoy. The barman at that time was Harry Craddock and he wrote The Savoy Cocktail Book, which was first published in 1930. This new edition has been updated by Peter Dorelli, the new Head Barman at the Savoy. In it you will find recipes for Daisies, Slings, Shrubs, Smashes, Fizzes, Juleps, Fixes and a whole lot more. Like his predecessors, Dorelli has invented a few cocktails himself and his latest is the Millennium--gin, Midori, Limoncello and mango juice. The book is illustrated with Deco drawings and will make a fabulous gift. --Dale Kneen
