The don’t call Ted Haigh Dr. Cocktail for nothing. Vintage Spirits is a great primer on the history of the mixed drink. It’s a fascinating read. And like The PDT Cocktail Book,  you can actually make most of these drinks yourself. Where ingredients are difficult (or impossible) to find, viable substitutions are offered. There are also tons of entertaining vintage photos, illustrations and ads.
