    MxMo Repeal Day

    Thams and Jeremaiah

    I wanted to find a cocktail guide that was published as close to Repeal Day (Wikipedia) as possible. My stash from Powell’s in Portland was nearly untouched, so I looked there. After digging through a dust-filled box, I found a wood and leather-bound cocktail guide from 1941 called Here’s How. It somehow remained in pristine condition save a few stains on the first page. I cracked it open and was met with a comforting old book smell.

    MxMo - Prohibition

    Looking at the recipes definitely dates the book, but surprisingly enough, it was most likely retro even for its time. Here’s How is filled with flips, cobblers, smashes, skins, pousse cafes, fizzes, fixes, daisies, and even sangarees, the latter of which I’ve never heard of.

    I must admit, most of the drinks I’ve tried from this book weren’t that good. I went through a slew of odd concoctions that I’d never tried before, like the Morning Glory highball, which attempted to combine brandy, whiskey, curacao, and absinthe in one drink. But I finally stumbled upon the Brace Up, and my hope in the book was renewed.

    Brace Up

    • 1T powdered sugar
    • 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
    • 3 dashes lemon juice
    • 1 dash lime juice
    • 2 dashes anisette
    • 1 whole egg
    • 1 1/2oz cognac
    • club soda to top

    Shake the bejezzus out of it with ice and strain into a fun glass. Top with club soda.

    Here’s How, W.C. Whitfield

    Not wanting to leave you with only one drink from this delightful tome, I thought I’d pick something that had rum in it.

    Thomas and Jeremiah

    • 2 1/4oz white rum (used 3/4oz 151-proof Lemon Hart Demerara Rum and 1oz gold Puerto Rican rum)
    • 2 dashes lime juice
    • 1 1/2c hot cider

    Here’s How, W.C. Whitfield

    I was delightfully pleased with this last one. It will quickly become part of my winter rotation.

    1. Sweet Catawba is a sweet, sparkling, and slightly alcoholic grape beverage made from the native American Catawba grape. Google Virginia Dare. Abricotine was an English Apricot liqueur. Prinelle I’m guessing is Prunelle, a liqueur made from prune plums.

      Orchard syrup and Fruit Syrup, I’m not sure about.

      My god, man, do all your posts have homework now?!

      I’ve been meaning to comment on your “Art of the Bar” post, since I’ve tried a bunch of its recipes, but like I did with all homework, I’m putting it off until the morning it’s due.

    3. The Thomas and Jeremiah looks like it will have to become a staple of my winter drinking as well. How fortuitous that I just bought a goodly amount of cider!

      I have that book too! I’m not sure it smells like old books, but it does smell like something not nice. The first page on mine looks like it went on fire at some point. During a Blue Blazer no doubt?

    5. MarleighNo Gravatar says:

      Oh man, I love that cover of that book. Great post! I’ll have to give ye olde Thomas and Jeremiah a go…

    6. Thomas and Jeremiah sounds amazing! And isn’t fruit syrup just a syrup made of fruits?

      re: catawba

      opinions to follow.

      Late comment, I know, buy I was searching for prinelle and landed here. I have Here’s How as well as its sister book Just Cocktails published in 1939. It had the same wood and leather strap binding but the carved cover image features a rooster. I love the quotations and illustrations on every page. Did you ever figure out what prinelle is?

    Kaiser Penguin is a cocktail blog featuring original recipes, homemade ingredients, classic cocktails, and tiki drinks.

    Why on Earth did you name your blog “Kaiser Penguin?”

    It is a well-known fact that penguins are members of high society and enjoy fine cocktails. Our very own kaiser penguin would like me to mention that he also enjoys various treats from the sea.
