Or How to make fine, fancy or mixed drinks
A helpful and practical book on the art of preparing and serving liquid refreshments containing over 75 formulas of popular mixed and fancy drinks.
This book is tendered to all men and women who entertain a taste for the brimming glass that sparkles or flows with the essence of vine or grain.
We know that there are thousands of people who every day desire to prepare some fancy beverage for their own pleasure, for the entertainment of a small social gathering or discussion with a friend.
We find that most of these are prevented from carrying out their wishes by a lack of practical information.
Many endeavor to solve the mystery of the art of making fancy drinks, but become discouraged by infinite annoying obstacles.
Thoroughly recognizing this condition, we have had this little volume compiled by a famous expert, with the idea of setting forth in handy, compact and inexpensive form the methods of preparing fancy and mixed drinks that to-day are held in favor by discriminating and critical connoisseurs.
Over seventy-five formulas are given for the preparation of various beverages.
The directions are plain and explicit and easy to follow, and anyone who will study them carefully will be able, with a little practice, to prepare the most delicious and satisfying drinks and do so with the skill and finish of an adept.
Each formula is complete in itself and sets forth just the proper way to secure the happiest results.
Those who desire to learn the secret of successfully mixing drinks will find the following pages of great value.
Others will find them instructive and interesting, for the recipes are strictly up-to-date, and the manner of preparing and serving is after the styles now in vogue in the leading hotels, cafes, clubs and social organizations.
