(**New Arrival**) (Cocktails) M.E. Steedman & C. Herman Senn. Home-Made Summer and Winter Drinks: Cups, Liqueurs, Cocktails and Invalid Drinks.

Illus. from photographs of glassware. Tan cloth. New Edition. London: Ward, Lock, 1924.

A charming book of seasonal homemade cocktails, with an unusual chapter on drinks for invalids. That chapter includes iced apple water, arrowroot gruel, egg and brandy, black currant tea, egg nogg with whisky, hop tea, King William's posset, marshmallow tea (made with marshmallow roots, not the puffy candies), etc. Liqueurs, cups and cocktails include some lovely names such as honey noyeau, greengage shrub, damson gin, pomegranate ratafia, plum whisky, brain duster, gin mint julep, loving cup, etc. Very good.
