At the turn of the century, pharmacies in Europe and America prepared homemade tinctures, bitters, and herbal remedies mixed with alcohol for curative benefit for everything from poor digestion to the common cold. Today, trendy urban bars such as Apothke in New York, Apo Bar & Lounge in Philadelphia, and 1022 South in Tacoma, as well as "vintage" and "homegrown" cocktail aficionados, find inspiration in apothecary cocktails of old. Now you can too! Apothecary Cocktails features 75 traditional and newly created recipes for medicinally-themed cocktails. Learn the history of the top ten apothecary liqueurs, bitters, and tonics that are enjoying resurgence at trendy bars and restaurants, including Peychaud's Bitters, Chartreuse, and Vermouth.

"Perhaps a gardener would understand that Warren Bobrow wants to help with your aches and pains. After all as a gar-tender, the methods of healing go back to the earliest times through bitters, tonics, elixirs and teas. All come from the garden. And the alcohol? Well, that may be the most active ingredient of all! Apothecary Cocktails attempts to discover the association between the healing plants in the garden to the cocktail bars of the present.Even if you aren’t hurting somewhere on your body, just a look through this beautifully written and photographed book is bound to make you feel better." — Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, Founder, Beekman 1802
