SOUTHERN COMFORT COCKTAILS RECIPE BOOKLET
From our personal collection we have a vintage cocktail recipe book which is a promotional piece made by Southern Comfort. It appears to have been made sometime in the early/mid 1960s, or perhaps the late 1950s. In addition to the many different cocktail recipes, there are also a few party appetizer recipes included as well.
Here's How to ENTERTAIN AT HOME and enjoy it!
While your guests are having fun, are you stuck in the kitchen, mixing drinks when you'd rather be mixing with your friends? Is home hosting all work and no play? Cheer up ... there's a way out! This handy little guide shows how you can have fun at your own party. The secret? Plan ahead!
Prepare your own party snacks the day before and put them in the refrigerator, ready to serve or heat when guests arrive. Choose the drinks everybody likes, then mix in advance, by the pitcherful or shakeful.
On the following pages, you'll find tested, easy to make recipes for 44 of the best known drinks that most of your guests prefer, including many that you can mix in advance. And here, too, are recipes for preparing drinks in party quantities, so you don't have to be a mathematician to guage the proportions for 4, 6, or 12 drinks. Plan ahead ... so that you, too, can enjoy your party.
THE BASIC HOME BAR
Key to planning: Be prepared! Have ready the tools and basic liquors for mixing the drinks most guests call for. Minimum home bar equipment includes ice bucket, tongs, ice-crusher or cloth bag and mallet, measuring glass and cup, shaker, pitcher, lemon-lime squeezer, strainer, can-opener, and corkscrew.
Basic liquors are: Scotch, bourbon, gin, vodka, a light rum, both dry and sweet vermouth, bitters ... and don't forget the Southern Comfort! It's the most versatile of liquors, because so many popular drinks can be made only the Southern Comfort way, and because its completely unique flavor adds new zest to so many old favorites, Try it once in your favorite drink, and you'll agree!
What is Southern Comfort?
In the gracious days of the Old South, men had time for the finer things. One such man-of-leisure in New Orleans was disturbed by the taste of even the finest of whiskies. He took the time to "smooth his spirits" with some rare and delicious ingredients ... and Southern Comfort was born! The formula for this unique 100 proof liquor has remained a secret to this day. We think that you will find it just as delightful as he did!
