Shake 'Em Up!: A Practical Handbook of Polite Drinking Virginia Elliott & Phil D. Stong read online review & book description:

An essential addition to the library of any cocktailian, entertainer, nostalgic, or anyone who just likes to relax with a cold beverage, Shake 'Em Up! delivers all the joy of a Jazz Age cocktail party, without the fear of temperance officers knocking down your door.
As the authors say: Shake ’Em Up! is “for People Who Fling Parties, People Who Go to Parties . . . People Who Don’t Really Drink but Feel That a Cocktail or Two Enlivens Conversation?in short, for the American People,” and that’s as true today as it was upon the book’s original publication in 1930. Virginia Elliott and Phil D. Stong created a handbook for polite?if not entirely legal?drinking during the height of Prohibition, and the advice remains sound, the voice charming, and the cocktails strong. Need ideas as to how to catch up with your already inebriated guests, or guidance on what to do when said guests end up a little too inebriated? Shake ’Em Up! will point you in the right direction. Whether you’re looking for the proper way to mix a Brandy Punch, what you ought to serve alongside a Bijou Cocktail, or a dependable hangover cure, Elliott and Stong have you covered. With a lively introduction from bestselling author Amy Stewart (The Drunken Botanist), this fully illustrated time capsule will inspire with buzzy cocktails and recipes from another era, making it the perfect gift for the hosts and entertainers of today.
