An Almost Complete Guide to Cordials, Arrow Cordials, 1969: This booklet says it is a sampling from a long work called Antidotes to Hostility: the Complete Arrow Guide to Cordiality, but, since the whole thing seems to be written tongue in check, I don’t know if that is true. 26-page, slick, colorful brochure from Arrow Cordials, marked only copyright 1969, Heublein, Inc. Near mint condition.
This is a really fun booklet with lots of fascinating information, like the definition of “straight arrow,” for example, or the definition of “spiked.” It also has some wild recipes. Have you heard about a recipe that involves boiling an unopened can of sweetened condensed milk for three hours in water? That’s Jessica Lark’s 3-Hour Can, and it is in this booklet, as is a recipe for Chocolate Celery. It also has a Cordial Glossary.
