A complete reproduction of Boothby’s 1934 World Drinks and How to Mix Them with a new introduction by Ross Bolton.This 1934 book with over 150 mixed drinks, first published right after prohibition, is fantastic as an “unabridged encyclopedia of all popluar beverages”. Broken down by catagory (cocktails, highball, fizzes, etc.) then by alphabetical name instead of by liquor. This allowed a bartender to supply the order looking like he was an expert in the making of an ordered drink because he could reference it in this book under the bar.Forget about bar bibles or encyclopedias, what about drinks that people really used? As so few bar books were written and even fewer survived at all from the past 100 years, it a great pleasure to be able to bring these drinks that were used at the time to our modern attention and use.
