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.....

    @mrmajestic1.....thanks for your love on this! The recipes are very tempting, and the text is interesting, too!

    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.....?

    I'm a member of a social club, and I am thinking of having some of these featured in a "retro cocktail night" there. I think that it would go over great!

    Sometime soon, I'll post a few of the recipes on CW. Or, if you'd like, you send me a PM on Facebook, Ted Straub, and I could forward them to you!
