Originally published in 1934, this 1939 edition, 46 p. book has recipes for 100 famous cocktails featured at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

In adition to the drinks, it also has commentary on Prohibition, bartending tips, and what wine goes with what food.

This is a great book, which I acquired at a Flea Market for a mere bag of shells...

    Thank you Bellin...it is really cool! I plan on trying some of these recipes out at home, and if they go over well, then at a bar that I often go to.....

    Yes, the home "proving grounds" would be a good place to experiment a little! Unfortunately, the book has no "cure" for hangovers, though! I guess that the old spiced up tomato juice concoction will have to be used!!! Ha, ha....!

    Maybe I should post some of the recipes.....?
