Overview

A complete reproduction of the 1926 The Cocktail Book with a new introduction by Ross Bolton.

With over 160 drinks in all, The Cocktail Book is a great addition for any bar.

This book, also known as A Sideboard Manual for Gentlemen, was published right in the middle of the U.S. prohibition (1920 to 1933), in London by the publishers John Hamilton.

It appears this book really got around, as there are several books with the same name and same substance floating around; 1900 by Page, 1901 by R. L. Paget, 1928 by the Botolph Society and Page, this one from 1926, and one in 1933 by John MacQueen.

Luckily these books all had the same purpose, an easy guide to popular drinks to be made at home. It features the Blue Blazer (Blazes), Bacardi Dry, Navy, New Orleans, Florida, Absinthe, as well as standard favorites, the Marguerite, Martini, Manhattan, Whiskey Sour, Mint Julep, and a few Fizz, Flip, Cooler, Cup, and Cobblers.
