100 Rediscovered Recipes and the Stories Behind Them

by Ted Haigh a.k.a. Dr. Cocktail


Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails enthusiastically invokes the exotic tastes and styles of bygone eras. This book is an homage to the grand beverages and great bartenders of the past, and drink aficionado Ted Haigh honors and remembers them with persuasive sips of the lost cocktails they created.

This revised and expanded deluxe edition features 100 delicious and hard-to-find authentic recipes for vintage cocktails you can make at home. The recipes span two hundred years with some from the nineteenth century, some from the Prohibition era, and some from after World War II. The vintage illustrations, bottles, and cocktail artifacts that accompany the history and the recipes are all from Haigh's vast collection.

Recipes featured in Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails include:

  • The Algonquin
  • Golden Dawn
  • The Blue Moon
  • The Rose
  • The Derby
  • The Straits Sling
  • The Amarosa
  • Diki-Diki

For help with finding and ordering uncommon ingredients, Haigh includes a resource guide with vendor listings. This edition also profiles pioneers of the cocktail resurgence—the twenty-five most influential online voices of the cocktail world.
