Drinking, By the Book

When I began designing the layout of Cocktails & Capers, I made the conscious decision not to include an index. I did this for two primary reasons: first, indexes are hard; and second, I wanted the book to be a narrative rummage through oddball history, and including an index would turn it into something closer to a reference book. In retrospect, I’m not sure the decision was for the best, but there you have it. In the service, however, of being at least somewhat user friendly, it probably would have been good of me to provide, if nothing else, an index of the cocktail recipes in the book. Well, maybe for a revised edition of the book at some point in the future. Until then, as a friendly aid to those who find themselves on this site and in possession of the book, here’s a list of all the cocktail recipes and their associated page.
