LOVE this book. Its main purpose is, of course, to provide cocktail recipes, and on that front it is very useful indeed. The bonus is that it's also an education on all types of alcoholic drinks popular at the time of original publication, extremely stylish and occasionally hilarious, with lovely little pithy anecdotes and cartoon illustrations. I stumbled across this book by accident, I think on a remainder table, and am so glad that I did. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0517526840, Hardcover)

Synonymous with style, elegance, and sophistication, the Savoy is unsurprisingly also the birthplace of some of the most famous cocktails in the world. During the 1920s and 1930s, Prohibition-dodging Americans visiting London for tea-dances and cocktails made the bar at the Savoy their home. Here they were entertained by legendary American barman Harry Craddock, inventor of the White Lady and popularizer of the Dry Martini. Originally published in 1930, the Savoy Cocktail Book features 750 of Harry's most popular recipes. It is a fascinating record of the cocktails that set London alight at the time—and which are just as popular today. Taking you from Slings to Smashes, Fizzes to Flips, and featuring art deco illustrations, this book is the perfect gift for any budding mixologist or fan of 1930s-style decadence and sophistication.
