The Savoy Cocktail Book [HOT]
Originally published by Constable in 1930, the Savoy Cocktail Book features 750 of the Savoy's most popular recipes. It is a fascinating record of the cocktails that set London alight at the time - and which are just as popular today. Taking you from Slings to Smashes, Fizzes to Flips, and featuring art deco illustrations, this book is the perfect gift for any budding mixologist or fan of 1930s-style decadence and sophistication. Updated with a new introduction and recipes from The Savoy.
The Savoy Cocktail Book
Finalist for the 2018 International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) Book Awards The definitive guide for those devoted to the brunchtime classic, the Bloody Mary, with 50 recipes for making cocktails at home.The Bloody Mary is one of the most universally-loved drinks. Perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and beyond, there simply isn't a wrong time for a Bloody.
The cocktail is as old as the nation that invented it, yet until this entertaining and authoritative account, its story had never been fully told. William Grimes traces the evolution of American drink from the anything-goes concoctions of the Colonial era to the frozen margarita, spiking his meticulously researched narrative with arresting details, odd facts, and colorful figures.
Crockett was a prominent journalist, writer and publicist. He contributed many observations on New York City nightlife during Prohibition, especially regarding the social life of the Waldorf-Astoria. This collection provides 500 cocktail recipes served at the Waldorf and is one of the first post-Prohibition books of its kind.
Fancy a Savoy Drink?In 2010, the Savoy Hotel finished a major renovation, and the newly redone American Bar still boasts the Craddock playbook, as well as new inventions for a new time. Should you happen to visit, tell Justin and Swani that we sent you.
Synonymous with style, elegance and sophistication, the Savoy is unsurprisingly also the birthplace of some of the most famous cocktails in the world. During the 1920s and '30s, prohibition-dodging Americans visiting London for tea-dances and "mixed drinks" (cocktails), made the bar at the Savoy their home.

First edition of this iconic Art Deco-publication, the most important cocktail book ever published. This foundational work of modern culture, made up of the recipes by Harry Craddock, the greatest barman ever to have lived, completely revolutionized the drinking scene and is still in print today. This classic of cocktail drinking remains unsurpassed, both in its contents and in its artistic form.
In 1930, the United States was still subject to Prohibition (though the more creative, daring, or rebellious may not have felt quite so burdened). More than a few American bartenders, cocktail barmen, and mixologists (yes, this was a word then and even as early as the 1850s!) took off for more inviting locales, including Harry Craddock, who left for England in 1920. He quickly settled at the American Bar in the Savoy Hotel, London. In 1930, he published The Savoy Cocktail Book, filled with original and compiled recipes. (The book also includes an extensive section on wines, but there is enough there for another post!)
There are a lot of things I (archivist/blogger/foodie/amateur cocktail slinger Kira) like about cocktails: the entertainment value, the names (which usually have a whole other explanation), and wondering just how a list of ingredients ends up tasting like what is does (often something quite surprising). Some of them even taste good! The Savoy Cocktail Book has some wonderful examples of all these things.
The second part of Part I includes recipes for classic early cocktails: interrelated families of fizzes, coolers, rickeys, daisies, fixes, smashes, cobblers, slings, flips, collinses, and sours. The small differences between some of these (whether or not the citrus peel stays in the glass, whether you add club soda or no, and just how much sweet or sour is added) account for the varied names. Several as single serving versions of the punches that were rapidly going out of style (though Craddock has recipes for those, too!) by the 1920s, if not sooner.

In 1930, the hotel published The Savoy Cocktail Book, which Craddock had compiled and would grow into an icon for its swank deco design and sophisticated drink recipes. (It became an essential reference book for the modern cocktail revival 70 years later.) Craddock is also credited with inventing the once-popular White Lady Cocktail (gin, Cointreau, lemon juice) and for setting a lofty standard that other London hotel bars sought to achieve. 041b061a72
