A super-chic collection of 150 classic cocktail recipes created by former Vogue drinks expert and man about town, Henry McNulty. Cocktails, perennially popular, have survived long beyond their humble origins. For many modern-day favourites, this was the Prohibition-era cocktail boom, born of the necessity to improve the harsh flavour of home-made liquors. Vogue Cocktails takes inspiration from this 'Cocktail Age', with 150 recipes organised by base spirit - Champagne, Gin, Vodka, Whisky, Rum and Brandies & Other Spirits - to ensure a drink for every palate. Vogue Cocktails also contains essential information on stocking your bar and mixing drinks, with 48 jazz-age-inspired illustrations peppered throughout. This stylish guide will become the go-to cocktail handbook for any aspiring mixologist, whether mixing up a classic Negroni or Martini, or a more unusual creation such as the Silver Vodka Fizz or the Paris Opera Special.
