    1. This book by Kevin C. Fitzpatrick is a fantastic read. It includes many delicious classic cocktail recipes from the prohibition era, with a story associated with that drink. One of the entries I particularly enjoyed was about a cocktail called the Orange Blossom. The entry describes this cocktail as the first ever alcoholic drink consumed by writer, humorist, Robert Benchley. This event took place at one of his favorite speakeasies, called Tony's. Tony's, the favorite speakeasy of Dorothy Parker [...]

    2. I love Dorothy Parker. Her wit, her wisdom, her attitude, her style, and even her affinity for gin (despite my own preference for vodka). The original Girl New York – at least in my mind – Dorothy Parker has always been a guiding light when my own literary vision gets cloudy. Whether inventing her own terminology (“one-night stand” and “what the hell”), penning pithy poems that the world embraces as fact (“Men seldom make passes / At girls who wear glasses”), or cracking wise, sh [...]

    3. I enjoyed the book, a quick read and it held many recipes. Being somewhat of a cocktail historian I may dispute some of the recipes, but that's like disputing a recipe for chocolate chip cookies: some ingredients are necessary while omissions and substitutions are a matter of personal preference. If you are a fan of Ms. Parker, the Algonquin Round Table or vintage cocktails, grab a copy of this book for your library. (But make sure you have some Dorothy Parker American Gin on hand in case you ge [...]

    4. Spiffy! One of my go to cocktail cookery books, with mostly historic recipes. Wee gripes are regarding a few persnickety selections from modern bars, containing ingredients you won't find easily or use in any other cocktail, and one really ick version of a French 75 (too much lemon, and try a cognac version from another text; thank me later.) What truly sold me are the anecdotes attached to the drinks. Read it, and feel enlightened and tipsy.

    5. A wonderful history of Dorothy Parker and her Vicious Circle with recipes included. This book would be a great gift for a cocktail loving friends and family. A few words of wisdom, a little history and some classic booze! Everything you need for happiness.

    6. Loved the little stories mixed in with the drink recipes. Tried a few of the recipes and enjoyed, but hard to find some of the ingredients. Thank goodness for the internet!!

    7. Recipe for a great read: Take 1 part cocktail recipes, one part bite-sized version of Parker's bio, 1 part fun facts about Parker's times. Makes one 100% satisfying book.
