The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book

The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book

The renowned Peacock Alley bar in the even more renowned Waldorf Astoria hotel has been a destination for great cocktails since long before most of you reading this had your first sip of alcohol, so it should come as no surprise that manager Frank Caiafa has quite a collection of recipes, history, and tips from his time there. The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book is a collection of recipes ranging from pre-Prohibition classics like the original Manhattan to daiquiris prepared the way Hemingway himself liked them, along with some of Caiafa’s own award-winning originals. With drink histories, cocktail trivia, bar setup advice and tips for scaling a recipe for a party, The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book is essential reading for novices and experts alike.
