Cocktail Recipes from Wolf in Chef’s Clothing

Cocktail Recipes from Wolf in Chef’s Clothing: Wolf in Chef’s Clothing is sort of a quintessential man’s cookbook from 1950, reinforcing all of the worst stereotypes about single men. It has five chapters on food and seven chapters on alcoholic beverages! Here are two cocktail recipes from that book, one for a Sidecar and one for something called Piscolabis, made of Italian Vermouth, Cognac, and Chablis.

Yes, we have the cookbook! See it here:
