Apothecary Cocktails have a rich and intriguing history. As their name suggests, these curative cocktails were originally created in early pharmacies or apothecaries, from ancient times until the beginning of the twentieth century. Before the advent of modern medicine, ordinary people had minimal access to qualified doctors, so early pharmacists acted as local medical professionals the sick in their community. Many of the most effective curatives in the United States were introduced by immigrants from Europe, Asia and Caribbean Islands, who bought some of their healing methods (and their exotic ingredients) with them. In this book, Warren Bobrow compiles these recipes and delivers in a clear, uncomplicated manner that the readers will find very easy to create at home for restorative, curative as well as for a fun experience.
