Bookseller Abe Books describes a delightful-sounding cocktail book it once sold: Giggle Water Including Eleven Famous Cocktails of The Most Exclusive Club in New York by Charles D Warnock. This was an ultra-rare self-published cocktail recipe book dating all the way back to 1928.

The cocktails described in Giggle Water are: the The Bronx, The Astor, The Bacardi, The Clover, The Dry Martini, The Perfect,  The Cooperstown, The Chris, The 1st Martini, The Liberty and The Manhattan. There are also guides to many other drinks, including home-made gins and cordials.

Other editions of the book are occasionally available on other sites such as Amazon.

Life must have been grand in 1928.
