"A more or less discursive account of alcoholic beverages, their formulae and uses, together with some observations on the mixing of drinks." Capturing the culture and attitudes of a certain class and time, it's something of a didactic recipe book on the making of alcoholic beverages and the various sorts of alcoholic drinks most frequently enjoyed at parties and festive occasions.

Wonderful B&W illustrations throughout text, plus frontispiece. Includes a chapter on the history of drinking, wine, wine in cooking, cocktails, punches and other mixed drinks and more. An appendix featuring the St Regis Hotel Wine List, as well as a reference for primary wine and liquor glass shapes.

Leonard T. Holton (1906-1973) was a New York illustrator and cartoonist.

Charles Brown is also known for penning The Gun Club Cook Book, or a Culinary Code for Appreciative Epicures.
