Overview

A stylish and debonair book about the great era of Hollywood classics and the cocktails typically served in films, from those in Rick's Bar in Casablanca to the vodka martinis in My Man Godfrey. Each chapter deals with recipes for a festivity or time of day: from an evening, pre-dinner cocktail cocktail hour to a celebratory breakfast or lunch. It also includes, of course, a compulsory section of morning-after concoctions. The recipes, with entertaining anecdotes linking drinks to specific films, give readers a true taste of Hollywood. Beautifully presented in period typography with elegant duotone, vintage photos of specific actors and drinking-related scenes.

Editorial Reviews

Playboy
While the drink recipes are great, the book's 50 duotone photographs of stars getting schnockered are alone worth the $19.50 price.
