Synopsis

During the 1870s and '80s, a single bar-filled block in San Francisco called the Devil's Acre threw what may have been the most enduring party the world has ever seen. Duggan McDonnell is in love with the city of his forefathers and its ever-flowing cocktails, and it shows in this historypacked drinking tour through one of the most beloved cities in the world. Twenty-five iconic cocktail recipes made famous by the City by the Bay--from the legendary Pisco Punch, Mai Tai, and Irish Coffee to the Gold Rush-era Sazerac and more modern-day Lemon Drop--are accompanied by an additional 45 recipes that show the evolution of these classic elixirs, resulting in such contemporary favourites as the Revolver and the Last Word, guaranteeing to keep the party going and the liquor flowing.
