    One thought on “Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails: From the Alamagoozlum Cocktail to the Zombie {80 Rediscovered Recipes and the Stories behind Them}”

    1. Vodka cocktails will never teach you anythingPers nlich konnte ich fr her mit Cocktails nichts anfangen Orangensaft, Zitronensaft, Grapefruitsaft, Maracujasaft und darunter versteckt zweitklassiger Alkohol, damit man ihn nicht schmecken muss Und, als Single Malt Trinker, konnte ich schon dem Gedanken nichts abgewinnen, der Spirituose der Wahl die Qual des Vermischens mit anderen Fl ssigkeiten anzutun insbesondere, wenn G ste in meinen Talisker Cola sch tten wollten.Nun bin ich davon weit entfern [...]

    2. This was an unexpected gift that opened up a world of cerebricidal adventures The writing is fun and the research seems sound the trick is in the lab exercises I ve made most of the cocktails in the book, if you don t count those that call for the mysterious Swedish Punsch I ve grown as a mixologist, both in skill and in confidence, thanks to this book They re not all winners, but it s a valuable course of study

    3. Like the handful of other significant cocktail books released between 1997 and 2007, Vintage Spirits is worthy of recognition for the change it wrought this book had a fantastic positive influence on today s leading mixologists but can no longer be recommended as a serious practical reference With perhaps three or four exceptions, the recipes presented here have either been adopted into the canon and modernized in the past decade in which case newer books should be consulted or they contain oran [...]

    4. This is a tough one to review When it originally came out, it was probably quite original and somewhat revolutionary However, nearly a decade into the cocktail revolution most of these drinks are no longer forgotten, and at least among the cocktail geek crowd, many are almost basic, commonplace drinks Further, while many of the spirits he talks about were no doubt exotic and often forgotten or hard to find at the time of publication, most are quite well known today and many have been brought bac [...]

    5. In my apartment and among my cocktail aficionado friends, this book is simply known as the bible It s just that good, that authoritative, that sound a guide to the righteous spiritual path for all right thinking persons.I ve got most of the several excellent books recently published in this New Golden Age of the Cocktail, but if I could only keep one, this would be it Other books may have recipes this edition has 100, not counting the several authoritative recipes given for many well known clas [...]

    6. I m still working my way through this book, but it is already my favorite cocktail book EVER One of the great things about this book is that it forces the drinks mixer to acknowledge the significance of ingredients It really teaches you that ingredients are critically important and a recipe can be utterly useless without very specific ingredients The lesson of ingredients is a difficult one to learn with this book because it sends you off on wild chases for obscure liquors and bitters You will i [...]

    7. Our modern professor, Ted Haigh, marries fabulous design handy spiral bound pages within a hard cover, busy yet elegant page layouts, fine color photographs and extremely up to date content I loved his historiography of contemporary cocktail culture, with biographies of the most influential cocktail websites and bartenders to emerge in the past 15 years A few weeks with this volume and you ll be tight with the cocktail authorities As for the recipes if you work with the current contents of your [...]

    8. Cleverly written and filled with fascinating information and amazing vintage photos But importantly, the cocktail recipes are divine If you enjoy the art of a well made drink, and you want to surprise and delight guests, get this book It s a fun read, and an absolute treasure trove of cocktail knowledge This is not a basic or starter bartending guide There s a final chapter with a fine collection of basic recipes, so the book doesn t leave you high and dry, but I d still consider it an addition [...]

    9. I think that Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails aims to fill the gaps left by standard cocktail guides like Mr Boston Ted Haigh s cocktail lore, photos, and technique are for the at least intermediate drink maker It s unfair to dislike this book on the grounds that it is too advanced, or heavy in things other than recipes Opening the book to any page will give you a sense of its purpose.I find Haigh s writing to be entertaining and sharp I used to tend bar, and this book is a great guide fo [...]

    10. 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 d [...]

    11. I m working my way through the drinks in this one slowly but surely It s currently my go to book when I want to play not to mention holds 2 of my 3 favorite cocktails within its pages.I appreciate the text and information provided within as well as the drinks being kept as close to the source material as possible Adaptations are explained which I appreciate since many cocktail books don t explain why they choose to alter something A few little things that the publisher did and I love are the spi [...]

    12. Fun, informative, easy to use and lovely to look at this is basically everything I like in a recipe book Having now made than five cocktails from it, I can say that while I don t love every recipe, there s plenty to explore for every palate Also, having recently acquired the PDT book, the liquor shopping list for VSFC doesn t look half so imposing as it once may have, which is good Seriously though, this is definitely one of my most recommended mixology books, and if you re into that sort of th [...]

    13. As a complete cocktail noob, I found this book to be tedious to read and attempt to comprehend A casual drinker looking for some real cheer in the art of vintage beverages, this book was not for me The author is clearly knowledgeable about the drinks he discusses, however, in instances where particular ingredients are scarce, he does little to assist readers in finding alternatives that might do the drink justice He also gives no briefing into describing non typical ingredients that someone of m [...]

    14. Great book with many drink recipes if you like liquor Many sweet drinks, some I would leave out the simple syrup if I were making them Lots of added juices, bitters, and curacao to sweeten the deal.

    15. The histories behind some of these cocktails were hugely enjoyable Nice to have these little back stories tucked away in your brain I can irritate people with random facts about their favourite cocktails now

    16. Decided my cookbook collection needed some solid cocktail books, so this is the first to get called in In a quick glance it looks great, spiral bound for easy use, history of drinks and ingredients and the first recipe calls for both genever and egg white I m in love.

    17. Really enjoyed Ted s relaxed style of writing and the history behind cocktail drinking only downer is that is very US based for me But still great and did you know that cocktails were originally and strictly a morning drink

    18. I don t think it s a stretch to say that it s impossible NOT to learn something new about cocktails from this book for all but the absolute most seasoned of enthusiasts Well researched, clearly written, and packed with recipes.

    19. I love this Cocktail book Its full of interesting information with a great resource guide and bibliography All of the drinks I ve made so far have been spot on Can t recommend enough and thanks to my friend Rooks for telling me about it

    20. There are some good looking recipies but I really like the history and side comments and hints in this book.

    21. The title pretty much sums up the general idea, but there s a lot Part recipe book, part history book and part wistful booze filled memories.

    22. Very informative, really makes you feel in touch with the cocktail renaissance The history and ingredient information is very good Unfortunately, the drink recipes themselves are not very tasty I ve mixed all the cocktails from the book that don t require some obscure, expensive liqueur Most a few are downright undrinkable, most are mediocre There s only one, The Derby Cocktail, that I d mix again with enthusiasm.

    23. This was quite entertaining, not to mention somewhat inspiring I now own a bottle of Angostura bitters The author does point out that there are only so many ways to combine a small number of ingredients, but the commentary for each drink is amusing and the illustrations are wonderful mostly Art Deco era advertising I ve bookmarked quite a few drinks on cocktaildb that I d like to try after reading this book.

    24. valuable for its stories and history as well as its recipes The format is particularly nice, with a little information with each recipe, rather than a huge history section followed by recipes A useful guide in the back on finding unusual ingredients This has sat on my bar and is referenced nearly every party I throw.

    25. We have been working our way through the text and recipes since I got it for the holidays The history is fun the recipes are great, even if the drink ends up not being to one s taste It s been a voyage of exploration, as inspiration and ingredients allowwe will have a SERIOUSLY stocked mixer inventory by the time we get through.

    26. Excellent introduction book to vintage and classic cocktails with brief and lengthy descriptions of the history of the cocktail, some of the spirits within the drinks and taste descriptions Terrific photographs of the drinks for reference as well I refer to this book often But don t let this be your only guide It s just a start

    27. Solid update to a unique collection of recipes and commentary 2017 update It s difficult to overstate the importance of this book particularly the earlier edition in the nascent years of the cocktail renaissance However, so much has changed since then, and this book is simply no longer current.
