How do you mix a Manhattan? Which classic cocktails should be served at a party? And how do you make whortleberry wine? Ambrose Heath was one of the most successful food and drink writers of his day. This classic guide offers recipes for drinks to be enjoyed 'to the advancement of the brewer and the wine merchant, and the confusion of all dull dogs.' These include cocktails such as the 'Hollywood' and 'Royal Romance', cold beverages like the 'Eton Blazer' and 'Country Club Cooler', mulberry brandy, and warming 'Caramel Cream Whip'. First published by Faber & Faber in 1939, it has an original cover and frontispiece by Edward Bawden. 'I'm a long-time fan.' Sophie Dahl 'I loved them. They are such a pleasure to read - brilliant recipes disguised as beautiful prose - if only all cookbooks were written like this ... Enchanting illustrations, too.' Russell Norman Ambrose Heath (1891-1969) was born in London. His journalism appeared in the Times and the Guardian, and he made regular radio appearances on the BBC's The Kitchen Front. His books include Good Food, Good Drinks and a translation of Madame Prunier's Fish Cookery Book. Edward Bawden (1903-1989) studied at Cambridge Art School and the Royal College of Art. He worked on linocuts, landscape paintings, murals, book illustrations and commercial graphics.
