Good Housekeeping's Cocktails & Savouries (1957) - vintage recipe booklet (SOLD)
A vintage booklet of "Tested recipes for cocktails, cups and punches, fruit juices and appetisers, together with canapes, titbits and hot and cold snacks for cocktail and sherry parties. A useful list of quantities and equipment for party catering is included." The drinks recipes include "Badminton Cup," "Lansdowne Lady," "Devil's Cocktail" and "Tomato Juice Cocktail," whilst "Prawn Cocktail" appears as an appetiser; the savouries and canapes include "Anchovy Twists," "Venetian Ham Horns" and "Scotch Woodcock."
Although this original 1950s booklet shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of vintage recipes.
