Cocktails by "Jimmy" Late of Ciro's London

Dust jacket missing piece on the rear, small tears, chips, light soiling of dj. small scuff mark front cover. Pages are clean, Binding is tight. From the Preface: The preparation of this drinking-tome is quite in keeping with the best ethics of such standard works as the family cook-book which your wife keeps tucked away for ready reference in the kitchen table drawer. Here you will find nothing having to do with jiggers or gills. All such occult references have been abandoned and you will find that your favorite drink's make-up is listed in terms of "parts"; so many parts gin, so any parts pineapple juice and so forth, so that even a child of five may prepare his (or her) favorite beverage without the necessity of running to ask daddy: .Please, what is a jigger" This in short, is a work dedicated to the simplification of serious and scientific drinking The "part" of course is of elastic sire, its final extent to be determined by the student. If he desires he may use a bathtub. <br/> <br/>
