Modern American Drinks by George J. Kappeler (a reproduction of the 1895 edition) with a new introduction by Ted "Dr. Cocktail" Haigh. Author: George J. Kappeler Introduction by: Ted "Dr. Cocktail" Haigh Hardcover 120 pages ISBN: 978-1-60311-185-0 Available: Now From the Introduction by Ted "Dr. Cocktail" Haigh... What made George J. Kappeler's Modern American Drinks so very valuable (then and now) are the many newly-published recipes, all with the same care lavished upon them as the old standards, but for drinks the public had never seen before. ... If anything I am erring on the conservative side when I count these seventy-five new drinks---in an era when a bar book wasn't plagiarism if it contained two or three. Among these drinks are names that lasted half a century and are immediately familiar to cocktail historians today: The Chocolate Cocktail, the Liberal, the Star, the (Montauk) Riding Club Cocktail, the Remsen (and Ramsay) Coolers, the New Orleans Fizz, the Lalla Rookh, the Widow's Kiss, and the Horse's Neck.
