'Vogue Cocktails' is a classic collection of cocktail recipes, containing over 150 mixes old and new. Cocktails are back in vogue in the year 2000, recalling as they do the sophisticated elegance of the 1920s and 1930s when a whole range of fizzes and slings were created to make the notoriously harsh-tasting bootleg liquor - the only alcohol available in the US during the Prohibition years - palatable. Now they are hugely popular again, with new flavours and ideas being brought to the traditional mixes of those first pioneers.
Here is everything you need to entertain your friends at the most elegant cocktail parties: advice on all the ingredients, equipment and glassware, and when to mix your cocktails. Armed with this book, you will make superb cocktails, adding a note of sheer elegance to any occasion.
This book is also a visual delight, containing many colour illustrations by Dolores Fairman and from the 'Vogue' archives.
