Summary
"In 48 recipes and dozens of illustrations, a lively and informative guide to the most popular cocktails from Prohibition. Americans weren't supposed to drink at all during prohibition, but that's not how things worked out. Cocktail culture, mixology, the Bloody Mary, and 100 other essentials of drinking life owe their origins to the dark days and boozy nights of the 1920s, and in Contraband Cocktails, Paul Dickson pours us an intoxicating account of how we used to drink. Rich in Hollywood lore, stories of bootlegging too wild to be fiction, and recipes by everyone from Audrey Hepburn to Ernest Hemingway, Contraband Cocktails is chock-full of history and craft cocktail techniques that will surprise even the most seasoned bartender. No bathtub gin required. Complete with 48 recipes, dozens of illustrations, and hundreds of extraordinary facts, Contraband Cocktails is the perfect gift for the most sophisticated drinkers in your life"--
