This rare Prohibition Era cocktail recipe book, die-cut in the shape of a cocktail shaker, was published in the U.S. in 1928, at the height of the Prohibition Era, flaunting the ban on alcohol with cocktail recipes by famous silent film stars, vaudeville performers and musicians, including W. C. Fields, Fanny Brice, Florenz Ziegfield, Ted Lewis, and George Gershwin.
Each of the celebrity cocktail recipes concludes with a nostalgic "Do You Remember?" reminiscence of the grand bars, hotels and casinos that had once flourished before Prohibition. The book also contains a page of "Antidotes and Pick-me-ups", "Helpful Hints" for making cocktails, "Rules of the International Bar Flies," "The Amalgamated Order of Beer Shifters," and "The Code of the Bar Flies."
This reprint edition includes brief biographies of each celebrity, a brief history of cocktails, a biography of the publisher George Buzza, and a chapter on dance during the prohibition era.
