There's almost nothing more idyllic than the image of a couple sipping cocktails in 1920s Paris. Or maybe a raucous ballroom filled with the sound of swing music is more your style. Whatever your fancy, this book will help you re-create some of history's most classic cocktails from the Roaring Twenties. During American prohibition, the fanciest drinks could be found in France, drinks like the French 75, Monkey Gland, and Orange Blossom. You'll get the history behind the cocktail, which Parisian bar made them popular, and the original recipe to recreate the beverage. Photos and tales of celebrity imbibing add to the authenticity of this Lost Generation-inspired cocktail collection.
