Details: Product Description 50 mid-century cocktail recipes, illustrated with vintage postcards. Cocktail culture boomed in the United States after Prohibition as America couldn't get enough of the new concoctions developed by barkeepers. Exotic drinking venues defined this era of drinking culture and were immortalised in the linen postcards used to advertise them. Transport yourself to an era of indulgence and glamour with over 50 vintage cocktail recipes (and modern twists), historical vignettes and more than 100 pieces of vintage ephemera. About the Author Diane Lapis has collected postcards for the past thirty years and revels in unveiling the hidden stories behind each image. She loves to travel and visit historic places, especially old bars and cocktail lounges. Diane is an independent researcher and a trustee at the Beacon Historical Society where she researches, writes, and presents topics on local history. Diane and her husband live in Beacon, NY.
