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.
