Handbook For Hosts

A sizzling noir cocktail

“Like an old perfume bottle of attar of roses, with a little saucy kick.” – welovedc.com

Based on Esquire’s 1949 Handbook for Hosts, this performance mélange brings to life a goldmine of consummate recipes from a time when men were men, dames wore gloves, and sloe gin fizzed.
