The cocktail goes in and out of fashion, and home bartenders need to replace their mixology recipes regularly to account for newly invented cocktails and rediscovered old ones. The Latin Quarter Souvenir Book of Cocktails covers the range of drinks served by Lou Walters' professional barmen at the legendary night clubs in Boston, New York, and Miami Beach. Included are 100 essential recipes, all well worthy of inclusion in a cocktail reference book and a glimpse into the nearly forgotten nightlife of the 1940s. This book preserves the glamour of Lou Walters' beloved Latin Quarter and the old-school artistry performed behind its bars. Includes vintage illustrations of the famous Latin Quarter showgirls.
