This was fun- a terribly opinionated book generally is! Lots of interesting facts about prohibition plus gorgeous old graphics plus snarky comments in the recipes. F'rinstance, regarding something called a Pegu Club cocktail:

"One of the chief, if unsung, achievements of the British colonial era was putting good gin into the hands of people who knew how to use it."

Lots of fun.
a nice basic starter for traditional and original (ie non-bastardized) cocktail recipes. gets 5 stars for the glorious illustrations and reproductions of vintage liquor advertisements.
