A Comprehensive Guide to Mixing Drinks (Safely)
on 24 January 2001
Harry Craddock was once asked what was the best way to drink a Cocktail: "Quickly," he replied, "while it's laughing at you!"
The Savoy Cocktail Book first appeared in 1930. Since then it has been revised updated and perfected into an essential handbook.
I've worked on recipes published in the 1977 edition for as long as I can remember but felt an upgrade was called for when I realised that there was another 100 pages in the current edition. Perhaps there are other bartenders out there who are still using their yellowed copy too. Do them an favour and make sure they get a fresh copy.
