Historical, Recipes,

Since it's initial publication in 1937, this book of New Orleans drinking culture and recipes has proven so popular as to be regularly reprinted. While some of the history it contains has to be taken with a grain of salt (for example, the Sazerac is NOT the drink that originated the term "Cocktail"), it is still an excellent snapshot of the drinks that were being served in New Orleans soon after Prohibition.
