Hollywood Cocktails

Over 200 Excellent Recipes.

This is something a little different: the Stunning Facsimile Edition of a book first published in 1933. It’s called Hollywood Cocktails: Over 200 Excellent Recipes and it’s perfectly timed for the party season which will soon be upon us.

hollywood cocktailsHollywood Cocktails takes us back to those days between the World Wars in Europe, and the 1930s in the United States after the end of Prohibition, when the wealthy enjoyed cocktails which would become classics. Cocktails seemed to lose their appeal for a few decades but the 2000s have seen a revival in spirit distilling and cocktail shaking … or stirring.

This charming facsimile is a reproduction of that 1930s original and offers over 200 classic cocktail recipes. One can enjoy cocktails from Sardi, Coconut Grove, The Embassy Club and many more iconic watering holes. Now one doesn’t need a time machine to take a sip.

Hollywood Cocktails is the perfect bar companion for serious mixologists but also for amateur barpersons who want to throw a glamorous party, a sparkling soirée. There is something for every taste.  I have quite a few Pick-of-the-Book recipes and all were new to me. The creamy Panama cocktail would be lovely on cold winter evenings. The Yellow Rattler is for anybody looking for a serious drink. The President Roosevelt is a simple cocktail, but the name could set the theme for the evening.

Hollywood Cocktails: Over 200 Excellent Recipes will be the ideal gift for anybody wanting to expand their cocktail repertoire.
