The Art of the Cocktail

"I drink to make other people interesting"

-- George Jean Nathan

Not so long ago, men drank martinis, women drank daiquiris, and no one knew what wine spritzers were. Anyone nostalgic for the era of the classic cocktail will revel in this elegant sourcebook, featuring recipes for 100 drinks -- from slings and smashes to fizzes and fixes -- exquisitely photographed in a vintage cocktail glass against a black backdrop. An informative text includes the name of each libation, its recipe, instructions on mixing, and an identification of the glass, intermittently spiked with immortal quotes from famous imbibers. A delightful compilation of the most interesting and adventurous drinks ever invented, The Art of the Cocktail contains recipes for such heady concoctions as the Harvey Wallbanger, Moscow Mule, Singapore Sling, Pernod Frappe, and Knicker Bocker Special, along with such classics as the Martini and the Sidecar. A new look at an enduring tradition, The Art of the Cocktail evokes the elegance of a bygone era with a presentation that will delight and inform anyone who enjoys classic drinks and their preparation.
