Da quando Richard Cook scrisse il primo libro dedicato alle ricette di cocktail in lingua inglese nel 1827, sono seguiti un sacco di ricettari per cocktail, molti di questi titoli con numerose edizioni. Navigare in questi tomi è essenziale per capire l’origine e lo sviluppo dei cocktail classici che appaiono nei menu dei bar di tutto il mondo fino ad oggi.
Fortunatamente, grazie a EUVS Digital Collection molti di questi libri sono ora liberi di essere letti on-line, e alcuni libri di cocktail vintage più importanti possono essere persino scaricati.

1827 – Oxford Night Caps di Richard Cook (Oxford, Inghilterra)
Il primo libro noto sulle bevande miste scritto in inglese, come suggerisce il nome, è stato scritto da Richard Cook, un residente dell’Università di Oxford, per gli studenti.
