Reactions to Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails: From the Almagoozium to the Zombie and Beyond by Ted Haigh

Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails: From the Alamagoozlum to the Zombie (100 Rediscovered Recipes and the Stories Behind Them)Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails: From the Alamagoozlum to the Zombie by Ted Haigh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A brilliant and beautiful book. Many cocktail books try to live at the intersection of recipe/reference, attractive to look at, and readable all the way through – Haigh’s is one of the very few to succeed. Filled with recipes for cocktails nearly no bartender is going to know (researched, reported on, and tweaked for the 21st century palate), wonderful photos of cocktail memorabilia (fascinating to see the labels of old bottles of bitters), and a charmingly gruff and opinionated take on how to mix a drink, Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails is easily among the very best cocktail books of modern times.

The physical edition is spiral-bound to help while working from the recipes – and includes so many spectacular photos that you should absolutely get it in analog.
