Harry's ABC of Mixing Cocktails

£180.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Very rare early edition. Tenth edition - estimated 1930s. This small (5" x £.5") thin copy is in pretty good condition. No dustjacket. Outer red cover good, a little grubby with white mark on the back. Inside pages good and clean - 1 page towards the front of the book has become loose. A nice, tidy copy.

Written by Harry Mcelhone. Mcelhone was a defining figure in early 20th-century bartending, most famous for his role at Harry's New York Bar (in Paris), which he bought in 1923. He worked at Ciro's Club in Deauville and the Plaza Hotel New York. He is often credited with inventing many cocktails, including the Bloody Mary, Sidecar, the Monkey Gland, the White Lady, and an early form of the French 75. The book contains advice on 'Arrangement of a Bar', 'Tending Bar' , 'Hints to Bar-tenders' as well as recipes for numerous cocktails, arranged in alphabetical order.
