From the Publisher
The glamour of the cocktail comes to life in this collection of
authentic recipes from the 20s and 30s. Prohibition in the United
States began in 1920 and cocktails became the height of fashion.
The underground Speakeasy grew in popularity and strong flavours
were used to mask the taste of bootlegged booze. Learn the art of
mixing period cocktails celebrating F. Scott Fitzgerald''s classic
novel The Great Gatsby. Try re-creating Jazz-age Classics such as
the Sidecar. In Juleps & Smashes, discover the secret to Jay
Gatsby''s tipple of choice the cooling Mint Julep. Perfect the
classic Martini in Martinis & Aperitifs or try a tempting 20s
classic such as a Raspberry Rickey from a sparkling selection of
Rickeys & Fizzes. Get out your Flapper dress and re-live the
Speakeasy experience with this collection of authentic cocktails.
With more than 25 classic recipes, Gatsby Cocktails captures the
iconic elegance of the Prohibition era.
