New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix Them, 1973



New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix Them by Jack D.L. Holmes.  Large trade paperback that appears to be a first edition, published as trade paperback in 1973. Published by Hope Publications, Jeffferson, Louisiana.  96 pages.  Near-mint condition. Some spots on the back cover. All the pages are completely clean and clear. No folds, bends, etc. Binding is very tight. Pages and binding are in mint, never read condition.

New Orleans Drinks is much more than a list of drinks and ingredients.  Want to know exactly what the deal is with absinthe, its romantic history and why it was outlawed?  Holmes tells you that tale.  The origin and uses of Southern Comfort?  This is your book.  Entertaining, informative, and–as it says on the cover–fun!  Plenty of drink recipes, as well.   How about the perfect Ramos Gin Fizz and all its variations? His chapter on Historical Highlights on New Orleans Booze is fascinating and funny.
