Overview

The Savoy Cocktail Book by Harry Craddock

Everything you ever need to know about choosing and mixing drinks is right here in this rare and highly collectible volume. Written by a legendary mixologist, it's the ultimate bartender's book, bursting with 750 recipes. Consisting mostly of cocktails, it comprises nonalcoholic drinks as well as sours, toddies, flips, egg nogs, slings, fizzes, coolers, rickeys, juleps, punches, and a myriad of other delectable refreshments. Extensive coverage of wines introduces the products of Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Champagne, as well as Rhine wines, port, and sherry.
This special edition is richly illustrated with unique color images from the original 1930 publication — dozens of period drawings that imbue the book with a lively Jazz Age spirit. A splendid gift for bartenders and housewarming parties, it's also a fine and comprehensive addition to home bars and libraries.

About the Author

English bartender Harry Craddock (1875/76–1963) trained in the United States at Cleveland's grandest luxury hotel, the Hollenden, rising to prominence as one of the top mixologists of the twenties and thirties. During Prohibition, Craddock returned to England, where he worked at the American Bar of London's Savoy Hotel and cofounded the United Kingdom Bartenders Guild. "The Dean of Shakers," he is credited with inventing the dry martini as well as several classic cocktails, including Corpse Reviver No. 2 and the White Lady.
