Jayne’s Bartender’s Guide (1934)
With an anonymous author and published by Dr D Jayne and Son in Philadelphia circa 1934, Jayne’s Bartender’s Guide was one of many books published right after the repeal of Prohibition in the USA that hoped to revive the recipes and the culture of cocktail drinking after a nearly 15-year hiatus.
In addition to recipes for cocktails and mixed drinks, there are also formulae for making some long-lost ingredients such as Stoughton’s Bitter, Angostura Bitters, Orange Bitters, Usquebaugh Cordial, and loads of other curiosities.—Anistatia Miller
Wow I am just now looking this book up.
I purchased this book at a garage from my elderly lady neighbor 12 years ago. It also came with an antique liquor decanter with 6 shot glasses attached to it all for $1.50.
I’m so excited to find this information online.
I still need to look up the glassware.
