Product description

Synopsis

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.

About the Author

Ted Haigh, a.k.a. Dr. Cocktail, makes his living as a graphic designer in the Hollywood movie industry and has worked on such spectacles as O Brother Where Art Thou?, American Beauty, and The Insider. Although he has been diligently researching cocktails since the Æ80s, his moonlighting as a cocktail historian became public in 1995, when he hosted the America Online spirits boards. In the intervening years, he has been quoted and referenced by the New York Times, Esquire, the Malt Advocate, and MenÆs Journal, as well as various books and other media. He is a partner in CocktailDB.com, an encyclopedic database of cocktail knowledge.
