Fascinating book! I have many books on vintage cocktails. It is culture, history, cuisine, and within it can be found the muse that inspires us to dream

Fascinating book! I have many books on vintage cocktails. I also recommend books by Paul Harrington and the Regans. The books complement one another. Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails is fascinating to read. It is culture, history, cuisine, and within it can be found the muse that inspires us to dream. Within the pages of "Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails" we can clearly see the inspiration that Ted "Dr. Cocktail" Haigh found from his own personal muse. This book is clearly not just "yet another" volume of random recipes, it is instead a carefully architected portfolio that provides a unique insight into this thing we call a "cocktail".

Ted Haigh's cocktail lore, photos, and technique are for the at least intermediate drink maker.

Cocktail brings all these in abundance and with great photos of what the cocktail should look like (always helpful I find), and some great illustrations of cocktailiana and vintage barware

Cocktail brings all these in abundance and with great photos of what the cocktail should look like (always helpful I find), and some great illustrations of cocktailiana and vintage barware. Another point to make is that this book spans up until the classic cocktail age and mercifully does not go beyond the 1960’s, after which there was a marked decline in cocktails until its more recent renassiance

Great Book of Vintage Cocktails. I love this Cocktail book. Its full of interesting information with a great resource guide and bibliography. All of the drinks I've made so far have been spot on.

Great Book of Vintage Cocktails. What a wonderful collection of old-time cocktails from the 1920's & 30's (and even earlier). Filled with great illustrations, curious information, notes by the author, etc. This book would make a great gift. allriledup, August 10, 2018.

As part of choosing that cocktail they ask you to note which of the botanicals you liked the most, and based on. .This is another recipe from the wonderful Smuggler’s Cove book, but it caught my eye for a totally different reason.

I had already made up my mind to try the Cassis drink (which I will make later) but my friend Sue got the Rosemary Blue which I also liked quite a bit. From the spice room you can see the other two stills, Thomas and Mary. Some time ago I was in Chicago and I got to visit with my friend Demetri.

The authentic vintage cocktail has made a comeback. This book does not repeat the timeworn cocktails of old. While old-fashioneds, martinis, rusty nails, margaritas, and negronis are all great drinks?and this book includes the most authentic recipes?you can find them anywhere. Here, historian, expert, and drink aficionado Dr. Cocktail has hand-picked 80 drinks rarely made today, and all of them deserve revival. Some are from the nineteenth century, some from the Prohibition era, and some from just after World War II, as the golden age of the cocktail was waning. All are retrieved from extremely uncommon sources. In fact, some of these drinks were found carefully penned into old cocktail manuals or on scraps of paper and may never have been published. They are true treasures, indeed. Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails pays homage to the great bartenders of the past and the beverages they created, lost in time, but still grand and full of potential. If you have half the fun looking at this book and trying these recipes as the author did putting them together, a great party is sure to ensue.
  • Fascinating book! I have many books on vintage cocktails. I also recommend books by Paul Harrington and the Regans. The books complement one another. Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails is fascinating to read. Recipes for drinks are provided, but also included is their history, the availability and source of ingredients, and the author's opinion on the drink. Enough information is provided to actually make these drinks and know what to expect. Thus far I've successfully mixed Zombies and Aviations. I would have bought this book just for the original Zombie recipe, which is included with lots of detail. The book is beautifully photographed, replete with great pictures of ephemera from cocktail's golden age. Did I mention the great discussion of orange bitters and of Applejack? Get the book and experience some great cocktails.

  • The cocktail is far more then just booze sloshed into a glass. It is culture, history, cuisine, and within it can be found the muse that inspires us to dream. Within the pages of "Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails" we can clearly see the inspiration that Ted "Dr. Cocktail" Haigh found from his own personal muse.

    This book is clearly not just "yet another" volume of random recipes, it is instead a carefully architected portfolio that provides a unique insight into this thing we call a "cocktail". The recipes presented throughout this book are both obscure and amazing. A few of them, such as the French 75, Aviation, Derby, and Pegu Club are libations that may periodically find their way onto a cocktail menu here and there, but others, such as the Jupiter, Modernista, Corpse Reviver #2, and Income Tax are ones you'd be hard pressed to find a bartender who had heard of them, much less knew how to make one. But that is not to say that they deserve this obscurity. Each of the recipes presented in this book are wonderful examples of the culinary capabilities hidden within the cocktail.

    The recipes aren't the only things that are amazing within this book. Throughout, you will find wonderful historic insights, from one of the few people truly capable of providing them, that will open your eyes to what the cocktail once was, and with luck could eventually become again. There are also beautiful pictures, of not only the cocktails themselves, but also of historically significant books, bottles, and other related miscellanea.

    If you are a bartender who takes pride in your craft, then this book will provide you with a wealth of new recipes that you can use to expand your repertoire. If you are a home mixologist, then this book will open up a whole new landscape for you to discover. The secret adventure, awaits.

  • I have used or seen a lot of bar guides and cocktail recipe books over the years, and Doctor Cocktail's book is the best - it has all the great drinks and lots of amazing cocktails that have been lost to history. It's full of anecdotes and history, and jammed with great color photos of the cocktails, old labels, bottles, historic cocktail books - you name it. Also included is a helpful list of suppliers for some of the more obscure ingredients. It's well written and funny, so you'll want to read it cover to cover even if you never make a single cocktail, but I guarantee you'll want to - try the 20th Century - in my opinion, one of the greatest lost cocktails of all time. Toss out that old bar guide - here's to the only cocktail book you'll ever need.

  • I bought this book on the recommendation of a couple of internet forums and the amazon reviews. This book is an absolute joy, and the drinks that it includes are uniformly well-crafted and delicious. I've had probably 1/3 of the drinks included in the book so far, and each of them has been a treasure. The most difficult thing about these recipes is finding the ingredients. We have a very good liqour store near here, Eagle's Landing Bottle Shop. They had enough ingredient to get me through these first drinks. I'm now working with them to order some new ingredients. My only caution is that you will drink more and spend a lot of money on liqeurs and mixers that you have never heard of. On the positive side, many of those are delicious by themselves.

  • I like this book. I have found it to be very interesting concerning old cocktail recipes that were popular before prohibition. It explains the different types of spirits that were used in mixing these cocktails and even includes websites where these spirits can be purchased. Highly recommended.

  • I read this book in one sitting. Dr. Cocktail's incredibly thorough research and attention to detail are both at once obvious, but that's not where the true beauty of this book lies. It lies in the passion Haigh has for his subject. You can just about taste it as you read this delightful compendium of cocktails. This is the most refreshing cocktail book I've read in many, many years. I want volume 2, and I want it NOW!

  • This is a wonderfully written guide to the classics that are now so current. I also loved reading about the history of cocktail culture.

  • This book was one that my son wanted very much for his birthday. He thinks it is perfect for the cocktail experiments he makes.
